Going out on a limb

Must-have mobile platformer Rayman Jungle Run sprints onto Windows Phone 8

Listen up, all you Windows Phone 8 owners. We've got a special treat for you both.

Yep, the PG Gold Award-winning platformer Rayman Jungle Run is now available on your Windows Phone 8-powered blower.

The game is an auto-runner, so limbless hero Rayman automatically dashes from left to right. It's your job, then, to 'tell' him when to jump, punch, fly, and run up walls.

Absolutely livid

There are 50 levels here, split between five worlds (with their own style and mechanics). There are also some hard-as-hell Land of the Livid Dead stages, which you unlock by collecting every floating Lum in at least five levels of a single chapter.

In our review of Rayman Jungle Run, we said that it's "an outstanding example of bringing a franchise to mobile. This fast, tense, beautiful game is everything you loved about Rayman Origins, now perfectly suited to touch".

This Windows Phone 8 edition is 50MB, runs on anything with a Windows Phone 8 sticker on its back, is priced £1.99 / $2.99, and is available here.

Rayman Jungle Run is also available on Windows 8 tablets, though Windows Phone 7 users are out of luck.
