Dublin, Ireland – Gone Gaming has announced some big statistics, a significant update and future plans for its debut free-to-play title The Jump: Escape The City 1.1. The adrenaline-pumping challenge has seen over 500,000 games played on Android and iOS devices, amid rave reviews, with its creators using real game data to shape updates.

Set in a dark comic book world, The Jump challenges you to a high-speed, 5 minute chase to the end of a futuristic wasteland highway. Players tap and swipe to control a hover car, avoiding deadly obstacles while collecting power cells for an epic escape attempt at the end of the road. Competition has been fierce with players around the globe competing on national and world high score leaderboards, while unlocking achievements badges for completing a host of fiendish in-game challenges.
