When you got your brand new mobile device for Christmas, you probably headed straight on over to the App Store or Google Play to grab the gorgeous Rayman Adventures, right?

Then there's the Incrediballs, a new (and odd-looking) ally for Rayman - each of which provides handy power-ups that help him get a good score in each level.

Bringing the right Incrediballs into a level is only half of the battle though - but don't worry, we've got you covered with this guide on how to get the chest of gems in each one.

What mobile games do anime fans have to look forward to next year?

Posted by Brittany Vincent on January 7th, 2016

There have been loads of games released over the past year inspired by classic or newly-released anime series.

Properties like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Bleach also have new tie-in titles due this year, so it's easy to see why gamers who love Japanese animation are so excited about phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

This year we'll hopefully see anime-inspired games released globally rather than just in Japan. There's a huge global audience for Anime-related games, and it's getting bigger every day. Sadly though the spread of these games outside of the East doesn't look like it's going to gain pace.

Square Enix is releasing the company's classic role-playing game Romancing SaGa 2 for smartphones as well as PS Vita, but it hasn't revealed whether it'll be available for global audiences just yet.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 28th, 2015

Chances are you've just received a brand new mobile phone or tablet for Christmas, and you're looking for something to keep you busy over the chilled out festive period.

Well, why not give Rayman Adventures a whirl? It's the follow-up to much loved mobile platformers Jungle Run and Fiesta Run.

With a quick swipe you can change direction and explore the crevices of each level to find hidden treasures, Lums, and Teensies.

The most exciting new addition has to be the Incrediballs though. These are powerful new allies for Rayman, who'll join you in a level and provide you with special abilities to help you get a higher score.

To help you get the most out of your Incrediballs - as well as Rayman's skillset in general - we've spent some time with the game to bring you this extensive beginners guide.
