[prMac.com] Dublin, Ireland - The Jump: Escape The City, the new high-speed game from Gone Gaming, is out now free-to-play on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. This action-packed mobile game features stunning 3D graphics, bite size gameplay, simple touchscreen controls, and a kicking soundtrack by DJ Poet, Super Producer and DJ for the Black Eyed Peas.
The Jump: Escape The City challenges mobile gamers to survive a high-speed chase to the edge of Monopolis, a city where fun is outlawed and your party just got busted. Players take control of a high-powered hover car, headed for city limits on a hunch. Some people say there's a way to escape if you can collect enough power and reach the end of the road...
An escape can be completed in less than 5 minutes, but no two games are the same, and there's more to The Jump than meets the eye. Players can super-charge each game with awesome power ups and the more you play, the more you earn. The game features intelligent scoring, national and world leader boards, achievements badges awarded for completing crazy in-game challenges, and social sharing.
The game was designed and produced in Dublin, Ireland by Gone Gaming in conjunction with Swedish developers Raven AB.

"I love mobile games, we play them all the time on tour and in studio so I was pumped when I was asked to do the soundtrack for The Jump", says DJ Poet. "My music really suits the fast pace of the game and anything that supports fun, I'm in! Let's go, let's escape the city!!"
