Ubisoft has made an exciting move by launching Rayman Mini into the iOS gameworld. The concept is similar to the previous mobile game, Rayman Adventures. Rayman Mini begins with Flaming Teensy, the famous antagonist of Rayman series throws a curse on Rayman. Thus, Rayman shrinks into the size of an ant. To revoke the curse, Rayman starts his journey through rich excitement of 48 levels.

He has to collect Lums by avoiding all the obstacles and attacks by jumping on the poisonous plants. The Lums will help you unlock new outfits as it rewards with the in-game currency Electoon. The game goes forward in only one direction, just like the famous retro game Sonic Dash or Jungle Run. The player can jump by simply tapping on the left side of the screen, and by holding on the left part of the screen, you can glide through the air. There is a total of 6 stages (The River Stream, The Rabbit Hole, The Swamp, The Trunk, The Foliage, and the Bonus round), contained with eight levels each and a boss fight. The player has to defeat all the five bosses in order to enter in the 6th stage. In every encounter with bosses, the player will earn a Swag Coin, which will help to unlock new additional outfits.
Recently, the game has updated into some Online Challenges just like previous versions of Rayman. The player has to run limitlessly and fulfill specific requirements and thus receives a cup at the end of the week. So, this May go on an adventure with Rayman and reveal all the mysterious secrets of the miniaturized fun.

If you have a fascination with horror mystery, you must try out Discolored launched by Shifty Eye. Discolored is brain bashing life-like game where you have no story to complete, yet you can fill in the blanks with your own mind. There is an abandoned diner in the middle of an isolated desert, and somehow it has lost all of its colors. Your main motto is to bring back all the colors of that diner.
As the game begins, an elevator opens up, and you will notice that you are inside of an old office that looks somewhat 60 or 70 years old. As you move forward you can see somewhere in that room, there is a table with some black and white photographs of a diner, and an item called “Card with Holes” on it. You make a move by inserting that card into a “Viewer” and boom! You are now transported into those mysterious black and white photos. The mystery starts from here as you will see everything in black and white, just like those photographs. If you move outside and try to go further from that diner, you will realize you are trapped inside that diner. There are three hued prims (green, blue, and red), and you are tasked to place them in their originated place where they are meant to be. After completing each task, you will find out that the diner is restoring its color one by one. After configuring each color back to its place, a new item will become visible, which was not noticeable in the monochromic background. These new items will help you to unlock such areas like attics and basements, and even it can be your missing link to your previously investigated puzzles.
Discolored is pretty much similar to most of the adventure-puzzle based games. None of the puzzles are challenging to solve or very hard to play. With no interaction with any characters, the game proposes nothing but a repetitive course or pace with no new challenges. Discolored will give you a haunted feeling and goosebumps as the soundtrack plays a significant role here. Every time you make a discovery or just complete a task or just merely entering any room, different types of aesthetic and beautiful soundtrack plays in the background. Just when you start to think that this game can’t get any weirder, the spooky soundtrack chills your bones.
