Title Screen of Sonic Jump
A reboot of this short mobile series was made for iPhone and released on 15 October 2012.
The actual gameplay is simple - Sonic bounces upwards off platforms and much reach the top of each level - if he touches the bottom, the game is over. There are four different types of platform - regular, disintegrating (one jump and it's gone), spikes underneath so if hit from below Sonic takes damage, and a higher-than-usual jump. Badniks can be defeated by spinning at or near the apex of a jump. Points are accrued by defeating badniks, gaining Rings, and clearing levels quickly. Beating a level with 50+ rings allows the player to earn a piece of a Chaos Emerald.
Sonic Jump was not received well, receiving a 5 out of 10 from IGN. It noted that the game has "sluggish and occasionally inaccurate" controls and is generally "quite dull}.
- The Sonic sprites are ripped from Sonic Advance.
- On the title screen, Sonic's eyes are blue, not the usual green.
- If Sonic gets hit, he doesn't always lose all of his rings.
