There is a free PC version of Rayman Oranges on Ubisoft Connect if you’re looking for something fun to play during the holiday season. It’s part of Ubisoft’s 35th-anniversary festivities, which have already included the Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Anno 1404: History Edition, and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy on PC.
When Rayman Oranges, a side-scrolling platformer produced by Ubisoft in 2011, was released in 2011, it was an instant hit, revitalizing the company’s aging mascot with some imaginative level design and a beautifully hand-painted 2D style. Even though Rayman Legends was released two years after its predecessor, it still manages to surpass it.
The contributor Simon Parkin-
“In its finest moments, Rayman Oranges goes toe-to-toe with the 2D platform game greats,” “combining tight, responsive controls with assured level design, a clutch of varied tools, and, of course, some of the finest HD animated art yet seen in the medium.”
What is Rayman Origins?
Ubisoft released Rayman Origins in 2011 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows. Rayman 4: Hoodlum Havoc is Rayman’s fourth and most recent major release in the Rayman series (2003). Nintendo 3DS, Microsoft Windows, and The PlayStation Vita versions were published the next year, as were versions for the PlayStation 360, Xbox One, and Wii. Developed by Feral Interactive, the OS X edition of the title was published on 12 December 2013.
Rayman Origins Synopsis and Gameplay
The plot of the game follows the plight of Rayman, his pal Globox, and two tweens battling Darktoons and other terrible monsters in the Glade of Dreams. The visual aesthetic, level structure, and sense of comedy in Rayman Origins have been well-lauded by critics. Despite its positive reviews, the game had a slow start to sales but ended up contributing to the company’s bottom line.
As they make their way through each level, players must battle opponents and free the Electoons they’ve captured. It’s possible to sprint up walls, float in midair, dive underwater, and shrink to fit into tighter spaces as the game advances. The player may also ride a mosquito and fire at foes or swallow and fire them in some stages. They will “bubblize,” or expand if attacked by an opponent or danger.
Akin to Wii’s latest Super Mario Bros, a fellow player can smack or hop on them to pull them out of this condition In addition, players can gain the ability to withstand a single blow by collecting hearts. As a result, if one or more players get bubbled at the same time, the game will revert to the last checkpoint.
The PC version of Rayman Oranges is currently free to download on Ubisoft Connect and will remain that way until next Wednesday, December 22nd, till 9 p.m.
