A great platformer is defined by its playability and its ability to get us hooked. That’s the case of City Jump; it’s a really addictive one! You can make Superjump jump around by tapping the touchscreen. That’s how he kills all his enemies (birds, monsters,...), avoiding hurdles on walls at the same time. When SJ kills 3 enemies of the same kind, he gets Pow Up (he turns into fire and increases his killing potential). Though the performance of the game is quite easy (as it usually is in platformers), it’s still really addictive and fun.
The 2D graphics are acceptable and are precisely what improves the game’s rendering. You won’t have any compatibility problems since it works for Android 1.1 and later. What we are missing, though, is a wider variety of backgrounds and different kinds of enemy. Even though there are two different modes (regular and Christmas mode), even if you really like this kind of game, it could get a bit boring after a while. By adding modes, more enemies and extra-skills for Superjump, the playbility of this platformer would be vastly improved. That aside, it still deserves the four stars we’ve awarded it.
City Jump has been developed by DroidHen, a company specialized in developing games for mobile platforms. They've launched a huge amount of games on the Android Market, most of them simple and addictive platformers.
If you’re a fan of classic platform games, you should definitely give City Jump a go. High playability with simple 2D graphics ensures optimum performance, whichever version of Android you’re using. With a games like City Jump around, you’ve no excuse for being bored.
