Rayman Adventures guide - How to get the chest of gems in every level

Posted by 148Apps Staff on January 8th, 2016

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?

It's the sequel to the incredibly fun platformers Jungle Run and Fiesta Run, and largely follows in their capable footsteps aside from a few huge changes. The levels are open for exploration this time, for a start, thanks to a new ability to change Rayman's direction.

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.

But don't worry about all that because, as ever, 148Apps has got you covered. Carry on reading to learn how to bounce like the best of them.
