SEGA Networks, Inc. is excited to announce Sonic Jump Fever™ is now available in North America, Europe and additional markets as a free download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices.
Based on the 2012 critically acclaimed Sonic Jump, this adaptation takes Sonic to new heights by shifting the focus to score-attack gameplay and competition among friends. Developed by SEGA’s mobile studio Hardlight, Sonic Jump Fever brings players together in the fastest and most accessible Sonic competition ever.
“Sonic Jump Fever adds the perfect mix of competition and urgency to the already fun formula of Sonic Jump,” said Chris Southall, Hardlight Studio Director. “Sonic games have always given players a chance to tackle levels a little bit faster and better each time – grabbing that one extra ring to improve their score. Now, it’s not just their own personal best they’ll be competing against, but all of their friends’ as well.”
In Sonic Jump Fever, players compete for high scores in quick vertical jumping challenges. Friends can blast each other’s scores by pulling off huge combos, equipping boosters and utilizing special character abilities as they play as Sonic, Knuckles and a host of other characters. Gamers can quickly earn points to unleash Fever Mode and jump into hyper-speed for earth-shattering scores. Even the most skilled players will enjoy variety and new challenges as in-game leaderboards reset regularly to feature new zones and prizes. The more friends players have, the more elite the prizes up for grabs. Three zones will be available at launch and gamers can expect to see more coming soon.
Fans of classic Sonic games can look forward to seeing Chao featured in Sonic Jump Fever. Gamers can find and befriend a variety of Chao that can be used to aid players in their quest for higher scores. As players leverage their unique abilities, some Chao can help prevent an untimely death, while others can be used to attack enemies.
Sonic Jump Fever is available on the App Store [https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/keynote/id794528112?mt=8https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/keynote/id794528112?mt=8] and Google Play [http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sega.sonicjumpfeverhttp://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sega.sonicjumpfever].

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
