Mega Jump from Get Set Games has tens of millions of installs in the Play Store, so the newly released sequel is kind of a big deal. Mega Run stars the same small red creature known as "Redford" from the last game, but this time you're in an infinite running platformer to collect coins and gems.

The game is very easy to pick up and play. All you have to worry about is tapping to time your jumps properly. There are 80 levels across five different worlds in Mega Run. It has the same kind of visual overload style from the last title. It's all about bright colors, big flashes of light, and tons of crazy power ups. The cartoon-style graphics are very polished too.

Mega Run is free, and you know what that means. Yep, this game pushes in-app purchases pretty heavily. There is a dual-currency system of coins and cash. You pick up coins, but have to buy most of the cash with real-life money. The game would be super-cool if I didn't suspect it was feeling around my backside for my wallet right from the start. Ah well, so it goes.

    Looks like a nice platformer.. I only wish some decent platformers that didn't have the "endless run" feature existed on phones.

    One of these days someone will get the controls to feel right... right? :-/

        Zachary. I agree that Sharon`s rep0rt is flabbergasting, I just received a new Mini Cooper after having made $7496 this - four weeks past an would you believe ten k last-month. this is definitely the nicest work I have ever done. I started this eight months/ago and almost straight away started making a cool at least $82 per hour. I went to this site,, fab22.comCHECK IT OUT

    I installed it and love it. the "ads" to spend money are not an issue in this game at all.
