When you’re looking for a great game to play on your new Apple TV, you want it to take full advantage of the device’s capabilities but still reflect the limited controls available on the Siri Remote. After all, even though the touchpad on Siri Remote can do quite a bit, there just aren’t many buttons available to make the controls complicated. Ubisoft’s latest release, Rayman Adventures, is currently only available on the Apple TV, and it fits the bill for what a game should be on the Apple TV.
The game itself
Rayman Adventures is completely different from the previous installments in the franchise that were available on the iPhone and iPad. In this game, the enchanted forest is in trouble because the ancient eggs sustaining the Sacred Tree have been stolen and scattered around the world. Your hero has to find them, adventuring in environments ranging from haunted medieval castles to the mythical worlds of Olympus. Instead of creating another endless running game, Ubisoft have crafted a world in which you can explore every nook and cranny of the levels to find and rescue Teensies and locate the ancient eggs.
Gorgeous console-quality graphics
I’ve played various Rayman games on both iOS devices and consoles, and I have to say that the graphics in Ubisoft’s Apple TV release are nothing short of gorgeous. It’s one thing to claim console-quality HD graphics, and quite another to actually deliver them. Ubisoft delivers.
Easy to learn controls
Rayman Adventures is very easy to learn, and the game takes full advantage of what the Siri Remote can and cannot do. The game is also compatible with third-party controllers, so the experience can become even more console-like if you have such a gamepad.
Getting Rayman Adventures
Rayman Adventures is currently designed just for Apple TV, with an iOS version slated to release during winter 2015. It is free to download on the tvOS App Store, without any advertisements.
