Casual Friday – Doodle Jump Review (iPhone/iPod Touch)

This post is part of the Casual Friday post series when every Friday for the next few months will be ‘Casual Friday’ where I will post some sort of blog post about casual gaming. We can’t all be hardcore gamers with month’s of play-time on our CVs, so now I’ve devoted an entire day to less obsessed gamers!

How many of you have been sat in a lesson, at work or even been on the bus when you’ve broke out a paper & pencil and starting doodling just for the heck of it? My drawings may not be up to scratch or even be worth your 2 seconds of viewing time, but the folks at Lima Sky have done something once thought impossible : taken a doodle and made it awesome!

In Lima Sky’s Doodle Jump, you play as a lovable little alien-like scribble (as seen above), the adorable little guy is without a name so lets just call him (or her) ‘Doodle’. Doodle’s job, quite simply, is to jump and just keep jumping! The aim of the game is to get as high as you can by bouncing off of little platforms. You don’t have to press any buttons whatsoever as our friend Doodle jumps automatically. The only way to lose the game is to get hit by a monster, miss a platform, or jump on a partially cracked one which will break in 2 under Doodle’s scribbly weight. Sounds simple, right? It is, but with more obstacles in your way, it becomes oh-so-tricky!
