Doodle Jump is one of those perfect pick-up-and-play games. You are a little erm…doodle guy who is trying to make his way up an infinite ladder of platforms. You tilt the device left and right to move Mr. Doodle and tap to shoot enemies. There are various items on platforms to help you gain more height. These range from springs, to flying hats, jet packs, trampolines and more. Some platforms are wooden broken ones so you want to avoid those. Some platforms move left and right and side to side. Your goal is to get as high as possible, but Doodle Jump has a unique marking system so you can see your place marked for every time you played as well as friends. The game connects straight to Twitter and Facebook so you can see where your friends highest scores were.
The game isn’t much to look at, but it does have a certain charm to it. The background is grid paper and everything look hand drawn thus the Doodle part of the name. Everything looks and plays simple and for only a dollar you get tons of fun out of this little game. This game isn’t good for long stretches, but it’s a good time killer. The game is also dangerously competitive thanks to its social-networking integration. If you love pick-up-and-play games this is your dream come true.
