Mega Run: Redford's Adventure (spiritually)
Mega Jump (Japanese name: Mega Jump ジャ派) is a highly successful mobile videogame created by Get Set Games that was released early 2010. It is the second game that Get Set Games has created. The game stars small and cute monster-like characters (with Redford as the protagonist) on an adventure to soar the skies. It is availible on many mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android.
Redford and his family and friends all soar the sky collecting coins and flying at high speeds to head home. A clip of Mega Jump is shown in the game's sequel.
Mega Jump is an action jumping game , and the objective is to jump and gain heights to unlock levels. There are various objects and items that can help (or hurt) the player along the way. Coins for example, are used to boost the player higher. There are several powerups that the player can use with various abilities.
The game has a shop that the player can use to buy items and additional characters. The player can also buy and upgrade their powerups.
If the player wishes, they may purchase "Mega Points", the game's currency, with real money. Mega Points are used to buy things in the shop. Mega Points can also be obtained by collecting coins in the game, so theoretically, the player doesn't need to pay any real money to complete the game.
Mega Jump takes advantage of motion controls. The player has to horizontally tilt whatever device they are playing on. If the player tilts left, then the character moves left, and vice versa for right. The player also has to touch the screen to navigate in the game's menus.

SoundtrackEditMega Jump does not have a particularly large or varied soundtrack. In fact, the first release only contained one music track that looped throughout the entire game. Later updates included different worlds that each contain their own music.
The soundtrack for Mega Jump was composed by Nick Coombe.
Because of Mega Jump success and popularity, it has spawned several updates and releases for various platforms, to keep players addicted. The Get Set Games website has celebrated it's own third birthday early 2013 with an update full of new and updated features. Mega Jump has lived on through it's sequel, even having an icon for playing Mega Jump right in it's level select menu.

- If the player tilts the screen too far in the same direction for a certain amount of time, the game will create a wall of Anvils above the player and remove any subsequent items and objects to prevent them from cheating, leading to the player's death. On some android devices, however, Coins and other items still appear and if the player has a powerup (i.e. a Supernova) while the Anvils are in place, they may bypass this "spam block".
