To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the famous arcade game, Rayman is back in style, and for the first time available for all mobile devices with Android operating system. The game can be downloaded for a fee from Google Play Store.
Almost as famous as the game where a plumber must save a princess or that where monkeys must retrieve the bananas stolen by King K. Rool, Rayman was developed and distributed by Ubisoft in 1995 for different consoles including the PlayStation and Sega Saturn but also for MS-DOS and the Game Boy Color. When it came out was defined as one of the most graphically appealing games and the fact that we can play it back on smartphones and tablets will fall a tear to all “former boys’ in the 90s.
The protagonist of the video game Rayman is just a funny character who must save his world from Mr. Dark who stole the Great Protoon and abducted many of Electoons, altering the harmony of the planet. Among telescopic punches, kicks and many secrets to discover if Rayman has to get away with a variety of levels with increasingly difficult obstacles to overcome, but along the way there will be many tricks and secrets, will also discover that you have hidden powers that will help him in company.
Ubisoft has decided to keep the graphic style of that time of the first chapter that started the saga; then you are in front of a vintage graphic videogame that will catapult your mind to the famous games with horizontal sliding that was so loved and still attract many players. To raise the level of nostalgia also contribute the music and original sound effects and fantastic environments that characterized the whole game. There is only one thing that maybe just don’t like: the price. But anyway, the game is available in many different languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian.
However, Ubisoft has done a great job of gameplay optimization with regard to the control of the character, optimizing the moves for touch screens, since at the time it was played with keyboard or joystick. No worries though: for those who want to try the taste of using the original controls, Ubisoft informs us that this version of Rayman Classic supports the gamepad. To be able to play again with Rayman Classic on our Android devices you have to pay 4.99 euros, a figure that does not pass unnoticed, but surely that in a sense reflects the philosophy of the 90, where there was no concept of in-app purchases to proceed forward, but we paid a price one-time to have the game in its entirety.
