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

Educational Value

Rayman Fiesta Run wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

The controls are very simple to understand, and completing levels isn't especially hard. The trick -- and where replayability comes in -- is in users wanting to accumulate every possible point. 

Violence & Scariness

Rayman (and other characters) can punch enemies and structures. Also, if they're hit by spikes, they inflate and explode in a cartoonish fashion. 

Sexy Stuff

The game is an app adaptation of the popular console series, which could prompt kids to ask for other (more expensive) games featuring the characters. Players also can buy additional "Lums" for $1 to $10 to unlock bonuses and other characters. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Rayman Fiesta Run is a mobile version of the beloved console hit. Players collect "Lums" -- bug/flower hybrids -- to gain points, move on to the next level, and buy power-ups. There's minimal violence, though Rayman and other unlockable characters will fight opponents in later levels and will have to run over a hot grill in others. In-app purchases range from $1 to $10.

A great Rayman for all!

What's it about?

Players will help Rayman and his friends jump, fly, wall-jump, and ultimately fight his way through 75 food-themed levels. Most of those actions are completed by touching anywhere on the screen (for example, tap to jump and tap repeatedly to wall-jump). When you're forced to fight, a "punch" button appears in the lower-right corner of the screen. You'll use these skills to collect Lums and free "Teensies," which advance you along the game's path, opening up new levels to play. If you achieve perfect scores on a level, it will unlock a more challenging series of adventures. Players can spend Lums to unlock new characters, buy artwork, or purchase upgrades to make levels easier.

Is it any good?

Ubisoft's first mobile Rayman game was a triumph, but its follow-up -- RAYMAN FIESTA RUN -- might be even better. The game takes all that worked well in the original and expands upon it, boosting the level count to 75, welcoming back the friends/costars familiar to console players, and offering puzzles that players of all skill levels can solve (though you'll have to be talented to achieve perfection on each). 

The game's food theme is charming and well integrated into the gameplay, maintaining the sense of goofiness that has defined Rayman games for so long. It's a title that's welcoming both to those unfamiliar with the series as well as to veterans.
