Characters are also a big part of the game and there are multiple for you to choose from. Apart from unique looks, each character has a special power. You can upgrade your character to become more powerful and also get special accessories that will change your looks and style.

VERDICT: Jump Arena is undoubtedly a fun game to play and is made even more fun when you play with others. It does get a bit boring as not much skill is required to win the game. However, if you have loved Subway Surfer and want to pick up something new, you can give Jump Arena a try. I would rank it seven out of 10.

We have all heard of games such as Temple Run or Subway Surfer. Most of us have played them too and they are a lot of fun. Jump Arena is a similar game but with a twist.

The main gameplay, as the name says, is jumping vertically over obstacles in order to reach higher than your opponent. There is a story angle as well. The tower that you are in is burning and you have to escape. Alongside the danger of falling into the fire, there are multiple obstacles in your way, such as a broken ledge or a stone that you can’t jump over. There are also springs and flying shoes that help you jump better. However, as you accumulate points while jumping, your character gains the special ability to use a boost to cover a particular distance.

Playing against others is the main draw of the game. There are two modes. In the VS mode, you are pitted against players from all around the world to see who climbs the highest within a limited time. It is a thrilling experience when you manage to overtake your opponent in the nick of time. In the Ranking mode, you play a single-player match and try to jump as high as possible. If your score remains unbroken till the time runs out, you rise in the ranks.
