Are you the type of gamer who is looking for a game that kills time? Pharoah Jump was designed for you, but there are some serious drawbacks to this app.

As I grow older, I realize that I am not as good at games as I once was in my college days. I’m not old by any means (35), but for gamers I might as well be dead. I don’t play console games anymore, and I definitely do not play PC games as those are way too advanced for me. All of my gaming is done on my Android devices. So given my epic gaming past, I still love games, but only the games where kids can’t tell me I suck and shouldn’t be playing. I am a true gamer at heart, although I am past my prime.

Overview:

Pharoah Jump is exactly what you would expect from the title. It is an Egyptian based game, where you(the Pharaoh) jump up, bounce off objects while collecting coins. If you have played Doodle Jump, you know what kind of game this is.   The graphics are great.  You get to see the great Pyramids, Pharaohs, and other monuments. In addition, the game does live up to its name of “jumping” upwards while avoiding enemies and collecting coins. So all in all, there isn’t much to this game and it was designed to be the game for quick entertainment. Not much effort is needed when learning how to play this game.

Setup:

Download Pharaoh Jump from the Play Store and hit start. There are no tutorials to learn from, and you only tap the screen to generate a red laser that shoots down from the sky. I never learned its purpose. You control the jumping Pharaoh by tilting your device to the left and right.

Who will enjoy Pharaoh Jump?

Anyone who likes quality graphics and doesn’t mind being bombarded with ads.

What we liked:

  • Graphics

What could be better

  • Too many ads
  • In-app purchases to open second and third levels

Pharaoh Jump Summary:

As much as I wanted to play this game, I was disappointed at how much the developer, Immanitas Entertainment, put forth in getting you to click on an advertisement or to buy in-app upgrades to free up different levels.

To open up the second map, you would need to purchase 10k gems. Sadly there is not an option to buy 10k gems. You have to buy 35k gems which costs $4.52. I don’t know why the developer would think their app was so great that they could charge money while Doodle Jump is free.

If the in-app purchases don’t get you, the ads will. You get ads as soon as you open the app. Once you close the ad, you can then play the game.  As soon as you fall and lose, another ad pops up.  I spent the first few times learning how to play the game while getting annoyed at the amount of ads I was getting bombarded with.  This type of game can be fun, but the ads and in-app purchases just kill the game for me.  If Immanitas Entertainment wants to improve this app, they really need to focus on the user versus their wallet.
