Rayman Fiesta Run is a 2D platform game for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8 and 10 devices. It is the second game in the Rayman Run series and a sequel to Rayman Jungle Run. On May 15th, 2014, the game was given a major update that added 16 levels that included a new world named, Candy World, and introduced Nightmare Mode. In 2016 a Windows 10 edition was released on the Windows Store.

Gameplay

Fiesta Run is set in the Origins universe, like its predecessor, Jungle Run. However, while the latter game focused on jungle themed levels, Fiesta Run uses more diverse level tropes, like the frozen seas and fiery kitchens of Gourmand Land. In addition, the levels contain more gimmicks lifted from the console games compared to Jungle Run, now allowing Rayman to swim, shrink for certain levels, and dive/slide. In addition, levels that allow Rayman to bounce between the foreground and background and boss battles were added. Finally, the Invaded level system from Rayman Legends makes an appearance for all levels of the game, except for the Land of the Livid Dead levels and the shooter levels in the Candy World. As a result of this diversity, the game features a world map showing the different locations, unlike Rayman Jungle Run which used a simpler level selection. The world map features many small islands that contain 1-4 normal levels each, not included the Invaded levels.

Rayman himself automatically runs in a predefined direction, like Jungle Run. The game is built around impulse reactions and timing, allowing the player to control attacking and jumping. The goal is to free 4 Teensies in each level by collecting Lums, of which there are 100 per level (only 81 need to be collected to free all of the Teensies, but all 100 are needed to unlock the level's Invaded counterpart). Freed Teensies allow Rayman to progress along the world map. Along the world map, the player will be rewarded with Lums, playable characters available for purchase, and wallpapers available for purchase. Collecting every single Teensie is necessary to reach the final Livid Dead level.

Candy World

Candy World is an expansion which can be unlocked by paying 5000 Lums for an entry ticket. In the Candy World, sidescrolling shooter levels make a return, but this time the hero is on their own and their only way to attack is by gathering and reloading themselves Blue Punches. The shooter levels don't have any Teensies to free. In the rest of the stages the main goal is to free the new pink Teensies.

Nightmare Mode

Nightmare Mode is a mode introduced in the Candy World Update. This mode puts the player into rushing through every invaded level in the game, excluding the ones from Candy World. In order to beat Nightmare Mode, the player must not die once. If they do, their progress is cleared and they must start from the very beginning. Finishing Nightmare Mode grants the player the Raywolf costume and 10,000 Lums.

Shop

In Jungle Run, Lums served no purpose except as collectibles to help reach the Land of the Livid Dead. In Fiesta Run, they allow the player to purchase utilities within levels, like hearts and Gold Fists, or extras, such as characters and artwork. If the game detects a copy of Jungle Run data on iCloud, it will match the number of Lums collected in that game and allow the player to spend them in Fiesta Run.

Gadgets

Gadgets are power-ups which can be purchased either individually within levels or permanently in the shop for either Lums or real money. The following gadgets are available from the shop:

  • All Gadgets Pack: This pack includes all gadgets.
  • Magnet: The magnet attracts Lums round the hero, thus increasing the range to collect them.
  • Phoenix: The phoenix ads a check-point at the middle of the stage where the hero can respawn in case of death.
  • Too Much Help: This gadget shows how to complete the level with all of the Lums.
  • Golden Heart: The Golden Heart protects the hero from two hits.
  • Ultimate Flying Punch: The Ultimate Flying Punch gives the hero unlimited and stronger punches.
  • The All Gadgets Pack.

  • The Phoenix gadget.
  • The Golden Heart gadget.

Social network integrations

Achievements

Main article: List of achievements in Rayman Fiesta Run

Fiesta Run has support for achievements through GameCenter on iOS devices, Google Play Games on Android devices and Xbox Live on Windows devices. The Windows 10 edition does however not have Xbox Live support, and thus no achievements or leaderboards. The game has a total of 25 achievements to be earned.

Leaderboards

Fiesta Run has a total of 5 leaderboards; 4 for the Land of the Livid Dead levels and one for the Nightmare Mode.

  • Race "Back to the Roots"
  • Race "Leap of Faith"
  • Race "Watch the Snakes"
  • Race "Breath of Death"
  • Survivor "Born to Survive"

Cloud syncing

Fiesta Run is the first Rayman game to feature cloud syncing. On iOS devices the cloud syncing goes through iCloud. The Windows 10 edition removes this feature.

The cloud syncing is not automatic, like in Rayman Adventures, and has to be loaded and saved manually.

The syncing is done manually from the settings
When attempting to overwrite a save with a different progress the game will show a comparison of the two before the changes go in to effect

Facebook

Fiesta Run is the second Rayman game with Facebook integration, with the PlayStation Vita version of Rayman Legends being the first. When signed in to Facebook, the player can compare their overall progress with their friends and view their recent in-game activity, such as completing levels and purchasing costumes. The player can then share their game info and receive 100 Lums (or 50 for sharing content from the activity log). Their Facebook avatar, as well as their friends, will be shown on the world map.

Game records

Main article: List of Rayman records

Rayman Fiesta Run has four Land of the Livid Dead levels, which save the players record times, and a survivor mode.

Levels

Unlike Rayman Jungle Run, where levels were divided into sections, each level has its own spot on a larger world map. Each normal level will have an Invaded counterpart, where levels will be populated with enemies, and are much more difficult. However, unlike the Invasion levels featuring in Rayman Legends, which were time trial iterations of their normal levels, the objective of Invaded levels in Fiesta Run remains the same as their normal counterpart, where they player must make their way through and collect as many Lums as possible. This gives a total of 72 levels in which the objective is to collect lums. There are 4 more levels which feature in the Land of the Livid Dead, and much like their counterparts from Jungle Run, these require the player to merely make it through the level and compete for the fastest time.

Trivia

  • While the playable characters, Lums, and enemies use their updated sprites from Rayman Legends, the game runs on the same version of the UbiArt framework that powers Rayman Origins and Rayman Jungle Run. This is evident in the lack of dynamic lighting in Fiesta Run, as well as unused files that suggest so.
  • This is the first Rayman game to feature cloud syncing. Although Jungle Run does have iCloud support, it is only for Fiesta Run to be able to check for Lums in that game.
