Rayman Origins is the wonderfully revitalised game that brings the classic Rayman legacy back to life, fifteen years since the first launch of the franchise. The game follows on the saga's traditional 2D side scrolling platform gameplay, yet has completely revamped the graphics, making the brilliantly unique world and characters vibrant and colourful. Explore once again the magical lands of Rayman's world in this innovative new game, with a little help from your friends.
The story begins with Rayman and his friends relaxing in their home the Glade Of Dreams, when they accidentally disturb a little old Granny from the Land of the Livid Dead. In retaliation, the Granny unleashes an evil army of Darktoons and various other evil creatures into the Glade, where they cause absolute mayhem and hold captive all the Electoons and Nymphs. The Fairy Council request the help of Rayman to help save the world and rescue the Electoons. Play as Rayman in solo campaign with his friends Globox and the two ingenious Teensie wizards, which allows up to four people in drop in drop out multiplayer playing his friends, as you go out to restore peace in the Glade Of Dreams.
The game has expanded on all of Rayman's quirky and various abilities to apply them to all the unique levels and environments you will experience. These abilities include running up walls, mid air gliding with the use of his Hairly Copter, shrinking himself, swimming, diving, and more. These become unlocked the more you progress through the game, each new world you conquer giving you an ability to learn, and definitely come in useful when you want to discover secret areas in levels. Certain levels unlock time trials, which means you have to repeat the level in a set time; when completed properly this allows you to free more Electoons, and you can even earn trophies for the fastest time. There are also incredibly fast-paced and fun treasure chest levels to unlock, where you have to speed chase a moving treasure chest through a dangerous course that will put your skills to the test. These treasure levels give you ruby teeth and, should you complete them all, grant you access to a whole other world: The Stars Of The Livid Dead Tour.
Some old fan favourite aspects appear in the game as well, such as riding the mosquito through certain levels, collecting Lums (which are Rayman's form of currency), and epic boss fights. New and exceptionally terrifying bosses appear in this game, for example a giant carnivorous plant! There are also over a hundred new characters to meet, 60 levels to complete, and a vast array of extra bonus material and content to unlock. Enjoy this wonderfully fun and colourful game once more, and collect pieces of the Glade's history throughout, so you can discover the truth of Rayman's Origins.
