A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Mega Jump wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

It's all controlled by tilting your device. The game gets increasingly difficult the higher you go in your mega jump. If you have two iOS devices, you can you can connect them wirelessly, using one device as a display and one as a remote.

Violence & Scariness

When you lose and run out of steam for your upward journey, your little monster falls down off the screen with little scream, but there's nothing visual to suggest a bad landing.

Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Each time you play, you can earn Mega Points that can be used to unlock new characters and power-ups. Impatient gamers can also buy MPs with real money, with in-app purchases ranging from $1 to $95. Players can also get points for watching ads.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that while Mega Jump is a free game, there are in-app purchases available that will cost real money if you choose them. Impatient kids may be tempted to spend real money to unlock new characters and power-ups. And the unlockable characters give you a fun reason to keep playing over and over.

very easy

very easy to play. all you do is titl the iphone/ ipad/ ipod back and forth

What's it about?

First players select a stage, then hit play. Then they'll tilt their device to steer their character as he propels upward, collecting coins and power-ups and avoiding hazards along the way. If they can't keep up, then their character falls and the game ends. The game gets harder as players progress and unlock new levels.

Is it any good?

In MEGA JUMP, players control a little monster who leaps off the ground into an airspace filled with coins. Each coin gives an added burst of jump power, so players can continue soaring ever upward as long as they keep collecting coins. Mega Jump's cute graphics, nifty power-ups, and dodge-able enemies make it one of the better jump games out there.
