Rayman Jungle Run comes to Windows 8

Smartphone game makes the leap to Microsoft’s OS

Ubisoft’s Rayman Jungle Run can now be played on all platforms that support Windows 8 and Windows RT.

The game is a port of Rayman Jungle Run that came out earlier on iOS and Android smartphone, which has racked up more than 1,500,000 downloads so far.

Ubisoft producer, Jean-Bernard Jacon, said the Windows version will feature all the content from the original game, including the recently released Potpourri level update.

“Windows 8 touch based interface is a perfect match for Rayman Jungle Run,” he said.

Rayman Jungle Run can be downloaded from the Windows Store, and Ubisoft has made the Globox character available as an extra download.

“It is easy for all ages to pick up and play, but challenging for the long-time Rayman fans to master,” Jacon said.

The game is powered by the same UbiArt framework engine that was used for Rayman Origins.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
