The Jump: Escape The City launches on Google Play and the App Store
March 18, 2013 Technology News(PRLEAP.COM) This free-to-play, action-packed mobile game features stunning 3D graphics, bite size gameplay, simple touchscreen controls, and a kicking soundtrack by DJ Poet, Super Producer and DJ for the Black Eyed Peas - PlayTheJump.com
The Jump: Escape The City challenges mobile gamers to survive a high-speed chase to the edge of Monopolis, a city where fun is outlawed and your party just got busted. Players take control of a high-powered hover car, headed for city limits on a hunch. Some people say there's a way to escape if you can collect enough power and reach the end of the road…
An escape can be completed in less than 5 minutes, but no two games are the same, and there's more to The Jump than meets the eye.
Players can super-charge each game with awesome power ups and the more you play, the more you earn. The game features intelligent scoring, national and world leader boards, achievements badges awarded for completing crazy in-game challenges, and social sharing.
The game was designed and produced in Dublin, Ireland by Gone Gaming in conjunction with Swedish developers Räven AB.
"The Jump is made by gamers, for gamers. It's not another endless runner. It's fun, fast and a real challenge for casual and hardcore players alike." – Karl Hutson, Gone Gaming COO
The Jump: Escape The City offers a great value 'Go Pro Pack' that is available for purchase, featuring in-game currency, and exclusive powerup, tips, tricks, comic story and amazing bonus content.
With thanks to Listen Deep Records, the game's soundtrack features 3 tracks from DJ Poet: Skeleton, Rapture and Digital. Player's choose their song and character at the start of each game, with each track producing its own climactic ending. Music is available for download via in-game links.
"I love mobile games, we play them all the time on tour and in studio so I was pumped when I was asked to do the soundtrack for The Jump", says DJ Poet. "My music really suits the fast pace of the game and anything that supports fun, I'm in! Let's go, let's escape the city!!"
