It’s Rayman’s 20th anniversary and Ubisoft is bringing back one of their most beloved titles. Rayman Classic is the original Rayman game brought to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The game is now available to download from the App Store.
The first Rayman game was released in 1995 and became one of Ubisoft’s first hit titles. The game holds a lot of nostalgia for many players and now they can relive that retro gaming experience on mobile devices. A new generation of gamers will get to play the classic title as well now that it’s being re-released for apple devices.
Rayman Classic features the same platforming, music, characters and story as the original game, however the controls have been changed to accommodate gaming on a mobile device. Players can use virtual pad controls or a gamepad to play on iOS. Once again you can help Rayman save the world from the nefarious Mr. Dark.
The Electoons have been captured by Mr. Dark and it’s up to Rayman to explore all 70 levels to free them. Fairy Betilla, Taryzan, Joe the Extraterrestrial and more iconic characters will be by Rayman’s side to help him in his quest. Exciting powers like telescopic fist and helicopter can be unlocked along the way in this 2D platforming adventure to defeat hostile creatures and evil bosses like Moskito and Mister Sax.
In addition to the traditional gameplay, Rayman Classic adds some new features as well. There is an exclusive ending mini-game now added to the game. There are also new difficulty modes available to choose including a challenging hardcore mode.
“Rayman was one of the first games I ever played and it shaped the player I am today,” said Eléonore Ronneau, associate producer. “It was a truly inspiring experience to bring this classic to mobile devices for more people to discover and for former players to enjoy again.”
Rayman Classic is now available to download in the App Store for $4.99. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with iOS 7 or later.
