Sponge Jump app review: jump to safety



We've come across a game that is challenging, incredibly addictive, and a whole lot of fun. In Sponge Jump for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone you'll be jumping to safety in an effort to escape the lava that is rising. You need to jump higher and higher as you get out of the way of the lava. The app is free to play so you'll be able to feed your addiction for it any time you like. This one offers up some very simple and smooth game controls as well, making it ideal for not just adults but kids too.

Keep Jumping to Safety

The Sponge Jump app is a fun and challenging offering where you will need to keep jumping up higher and higher out of the way of the lava that is inching towards you. The higher you jump the more points you'll get, so you'll want to try to get those dizzying heights. As mentioned the game controls are simple and smooth; all you need to do is tap on the screen to jump and then tilt it in order to change the direction.

While the app is free to play it is supported by ads which can be removed for $0.99. The app scores very high with users who have given it an almost perfect user rating of 4.5 out of five stars. They enjoy how addictive it is and how smoothly it operates. It has just gone through a number of updates which included such things as bug fixes, enhancements to the gameplay, a pause button, and the ability to now share your high scores on Twitter and Facebook. There was even a new ability given to your sponge character as you can now stick right to the sides of blocks and then continue to jump again.

The Gameplay Experience

Unlike a lot of games, when you launch this one you’ll be able to start playing right away as Sponge Jump is so wonderfully simple when it comes to the game concept. The app supports Game Center which gives you a way to be more competitive and try to out-do the rest of the field. I totally understand how players can find it so addictive because each time the game ends you’re absolutely convinced you’ll be able to get further and do better the next time around. This one requires some fast reflexes and a bit of strategizing so that you don’t get stuck below the blocks and in the lava.
