Ketchapp, the master of simple yet AMAZING games, is back with a new hit! The sequel of the huge 2016 success Puzzle Jump: Puzzle Run.
Puzzle Run is fairly simple. Jump at the right time or else you die. Sounds easy? Well, that’s what I also thought but after playing for a couple of minutes, it is not as easy as it seems.
You have two rows of ice where your jelly is running. Tapping on your screen will make your jelly jump from the left to the right or vice versa. Many obstacles will try to stop you; avoid them by jumping on the other side. At first, it will be hard and you will not get pretty far. But after a few tries, you will start to get better and get higher score. This is when you will realize that this game is really awesome and addictive. You will want to restart and restart again just to get a better high score. The fun double when you have friends that fight for the first place among your group or the in game leaderboard.
Like always, Ketchapp did a really good job with the graphics. The commands are responsive and accurate which makes it more enjoyable because it is less likely that you will die from glitches or lags.
To make it even more addictive, while jumping and trying to survive, you can collect jellies which can then be used to change the color of your jelly or unlock new type of jellies. While these “upgrades” doesn’t give you any type of advantages, it makes your jelly look hot and awesome! It also gives you bragging power to your friends
The game just came out and has already 50 000 downloads at the time of writing this article and I predict a big million success. Jump in in this amazing game and rank up the scores to be the very best!

If you already enjoy this game, these tips might interest you
On your way, you, obviously, saw that there is some walls and you need to avoid them. You probably also saw that some of them are moving and some of them aren’t. To know which ones can move, simply look at the triangle on the front of the wall. If it is glowing, it means that it can move. If it is not glowing, it means that the wall cannot move. Some walls will always glow and move on a fix interval. Some others glow at the beginning but stop after they moved once. By knowing which ones can or cannot move, you can predict your route easier.
Prediction and calculation is the key
If you want to get far, you cannot simply jump and avoid obstacles. You need to look ahead and see what is coming. A lot of times, the game will force you to jump to put you in a position where you cannot jump back. This is why you need to look ahead and sometimes you will need to jump, even if you are not avoiding an obstacle or an hole, to position your jelly. You also need to calculate the distance of your jumps.
In this example, I didn’t look ahead and I jumped to late. Resulting in a forced jump in the void.
I should have jumped earlier in order to be able to jump back in that small platform to then jump back on the main track,
Get more jellies to buy stuff
In your journeys, you will not come across a lot of jellies. If you want to buy the cool new Jelly skins faster, you can look up for pop ups at the end of your run to watch ads and gain extra jellies points. This is worth it if you do not want to spend money on the skins.
