26 years after the iconic film, you can now play the Jumanji board game, based on the 1995 classic, on mobile! It’s casual co-op fun for up to 4 players.
ABOUT THE GAME
A game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind… experience the Jumanji board game based on the 1995 film. The game combines the classic board game with exciting time attack, card matching mechanics. Roll the dice and read the riddle! Every round is a race against time to banish the danger as a team and reach the centre of the board. In the face of crocodiles, elephants and rhinos, rescue your friends from creeping vines and dodge the hunter, Van Pelt.
Test your skills
• The Jumanji board game contains a mysterious jungle. With every roll of the dice dangers escape into the town and can only be stopped by finishing the game. Be careful, if the jungle overpowers you and your team - everyone loses
• ROLL THE DICE TO MOVE YOUR TOKEN - DOUBLES GETS ANOTHER TURN - REACH THE CENTER TO WIN…
• ADVENTURERS BEWARE: DO NOT BEGIN UNLESS YOU INTEND TO FINISH… Stand together and face the creatures and plants the Jumanji riddle summons into the world
• Cycle through your deck and match the items to the danger to banish them back into the board.
• Use the items wisely and rescue your friends from jungle vines, and protect yourself with the magical shield.
• Manage token magic - your token will charge whenever you use a magical flask. When it’s fully charged you can use it against any danger, or banish Van Pelt in a single move.
• Use bonus items: add valuable seconds to your fight, and team-up points when you help a friend escape vines or gift magical objects. It takes working together to get a Team-Up All-Out Attack!
• Collect gems as you travel around the board and choose magical abilities, including extra Team-Up points when helping friends, reduced damage from Van Pelt’s attacks, and the ability to deal extra damage when battling vines!
Cooperate in real-time
Your team will face more than one threat in every round. While you battle jungle creatures, twisting vines will try to ensnare you and your friends, and you must help each other to escape. Watch out for the hunter, Van Pelt, you’ll also need to dodge his attacks!
One of you must reach the center of the board to win the game, and it takes teamwork to get that far. Do you have fewer players? AI companions will join to complete your team.

It’s so quick and easy to pick up, anyone can play! Join your friends for co-op fun online, gather around the digital board anywhere, anytime, and start your cursed adventure.

Ratings and Reviews
Awesome Tribute to the Movies!
If you enjoy the movies, especially the first one, then you will enjoy this game. It is similar to the physical board game (released back when the first movie was made) except for the mini games (that I can remember anyways). The mini games are basically the same, wish there was a bit more variety for those portions. I’m addition, some of the threats that appear can be seen more then once, such as the monkeys etc; I feel like the threats should only be made once per game as it would give a more nod to the movie but not a deal breaker. You can choose between single player, multiplayer, or online; all of which is an awesome addition especially when you live far apart from family and friends. Overall I completely recommend this game and for the price you can’t beat it!

Fun but Repetitive
It’s kinda fun at first, but it gets very repetitive very quickly. All of the mini-games are essentially identical. The DLC might help, but at nearly $30 I’m not going to find that out. Still, it looks good and little kids might be diverted for awhile.

2 stars for nostalgia, no replay value
The game looks fine (mostly) but the actual gameplay leaves MUCH to be desired. Much like the real-world Jumanji tie-in board game, defeating enemies boils down to matching symbols (here it’s a random “stack” of icons in lieu of dice) before the time runs out — which might be okay, if it worked correctly. More often than not the symbol on my stack is marked green (to indicate it can be used on an enemy and/or another player) but there is *nowhere* to send it (drag the icon from the stack to the enemy/etc) — after a handful of games I’ve realized it’s usually just out of sync, the enemy matching the symbol not having been generated yet by the game. With less than a minute on the clock, any time spent hovering a finger over the screen until a new enemy spawns is a massive waste. Untimed encounters suffer from the incomprehensible idea to have the enemies constantly spitting out vines to ensnare the team — the tutorial makes it seem as if those vines are only a concern if/when the red timer on an enemy’s HP icon runs out (and indeed, the enemies do barf up another mass of vines when this occurs — so what’s the point to this style of encounters except guaranteeing a location will be lost?) Once Van Pelt, the hunter, drops into the game, all encounters become a big mess of trying to fling icons across every inch of the screen.
Dragging matched icons onto enemies/players is finicky at best — sometimes the icon lands, and sometimes it feels like a pixel hunt, which, again, is a waste of time in a timed game (not to mention it likely renders the game impossible to play for potential players who may not have the dexterity to drag an icon from Point A to an exact, tiny range of pixels across the screen).
Graphics are fine, but nothing on the screen has any character whatsoever. The player avatars might as well be Clue pawns, they all behave exactly the same way, and not having to watch all four of them stare dead-eyed at each other between turns would help the dire pacing of the whole experience (you will feel time slipping away from you watching the pawns crawl from one tile to the next). It took me about 3 games to realize the backgrounds were changing from one turn to the next — they’re all conveniently vast, open spaces which barely register once the camera moves in to the team/board. The enemies range from perfectly meh, to “Why is the zebra auditioning to be the next Donkey in Shrek?” No matter the enemy, the victory dance when it inevitably wins is the same: a jarring, jerking motion (sometimes accompanied by the enemy turning red, for reasons?) like the game is having a stroke. I’ve also seen the end-of-game graphics just not happen (hilarious though to see the team twitching & struggling against absolutely nothing when the vines fail to appear) at least three times.
I get the idea of making the game challenging — it *should make players want to load a new game & try again, but the gameplay is so butchered, repetitive, and uninspired that there’s no incentive to try again. There’s a decent game in here if the encounters can be refined & some of the fluff trimmed (speed. up. the. pawns.). For now, I’m glad I bought this on mobile & didn’t pay up for the PC/Switch version. Marmalade has an excellent track record, and I hope after an update/two I’ll be able to reevaluate this game & find more to enjoy.

Hi Sam and thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on JUMANJI. You have been with us for a while (since Clue/Cluedo's release, if I'm not mistaken) and we sincerely appreciate your honest and in-depth reviews.
I'll do my best to address your points in an organized manner but the App Store has a tendency to destroy paragraphs. My apologies if that occurs.
Let me begin by saying that here at Marmalade Game Studio we love all types of feedback - good and bad. Good because it means that we accomplished what we set out to do, which was to develop a great game, and bad because it gives us the opportunity to perfect and fine-tune the game post-launch, which we strive to do in all of our titles. For this reason we are very thankful to players who take some time out of their day to share their thoughts with us.
Having just been launched on the App Store and on Google Play, JUMANJI does regrettably feature a few bugs which our extensive play-testing did not catch. Please know that we are actively monitoring player reviews for issues and will be releasing updates to address them in a timely manner. Issues such as the ones you mentioned - symbols marked green before the applicable danger spawns, and trouble dragging items on top of dangers - are going to be fixed in an update this week, along with other reported bugs.
JUMANJI has several game modes or “styles” of encounters, including the untimed one that you mentioned: the Survival mode. Each mode has a different style to ensure our players are kept on their toes but, independently of the mode you play, the final goal is always to save the location you are in. In the case of Survival mode, you need to defeat all of the dangers before your team is fully trapped (and not before a timer runs out like in other modes). If you defeat all dangers, the location is saved, otherwise, if all players get fully trapped, the location is lost. We are sincerely sorry that this was not clear as we always strive to make our games’ rules as clear and intuitive as possible.
We also understand that JUMANJI’s difficulty is a little imbalanced at this time, with encounters such as the aforementioned one being particularly difficult to overcome. We are actively gathering feedback and analytics on all of JUMANJI’s encounters, and are using that information to tweak the game’s difficulty until it reaches an appropriate level.
In regard to JUMANJI’s gameplay, we’re saddened to hear that it feels repetitive and uninspired to you, but appreciate your honesty. We are also gathering feedback on this subject and aim to make some adjustments that will improve the fun-factor of the encounters for all players.
Thanks again for your review! In the coming weeks and months we will bring out a lot of JUMANJI updates to address most player concerns, so we sincerely hope that you will give the game another chance.
(If you encounter any technical issues please do not hesitate to report them to us at email@example.com)
