[prMac.com] Burgas, Bulgaria - Internet Reshenia today is pleased to announce Jumpy Horse 2.1 for iOS, an update to their simulation game where players score points controlling one of several horses in either Jump or Pasture mode. Featuring a variety of realistically rendered horses and backgrounds, the game includes single and multiplayer modes, wallpapers, Training mode, choice of three temperaments, Painting mode, and many user-controllable movements and behaviors. Remarkable love and care are apparent in the posture, movement, coloring, markings, and shadows of all the magnificent animals brought to life on screen. Jumpy Horse is an ideal, animated sim game for players of all ages who love horses (Jumpy is the nickname of the developer's own horse, Genesis).
At launch, in either portrait or landscape orientation, the game offers the player a group of choices: single or multiplayer Play; Wild, Joyful, or Lazy Temperment; horses that are White, Brown, Dark Brown, or Blonde; environmental backgrounds including Fields, Corral, Mountains, Forest, and Snow-Covered Woods; and 90 Wallpapers. Also available are brief Instructions and a Training mode.
In Training mode the player hears the wind and birds, as four horses graze lazily. Their animated movements are realistic, spontaneous, and random. The Cowboy in the background provides directions via speech bubbles. The player reads the movement instruction, follows the instruction, observes the results, and the bubble disappears.

Players can score points in Pasture mode or Jump mode. In Pasture mode players score points for the amount of grass consumed in the shortest time. Other horses are grazing, and the player must choose a strategy to defend the best part of the pasture, chase other horses away, or simply ignore other horses that are pasturing. In Jump mode the goal is to throw the rider as quickly as possible. In Multiplayer mode, one player can be the horse and the other the cowboy.
