iPhone developer Lima Sky has created a certifiable addiction with their game “Doodle Jump”. This simple to learn, extremely hard to master, game looks like doodles drawn on grid paper. Your little alien looking doodle jumps every time it touches one of the green or blue platforms in the game. Your goal is to jump as high as you can without missing a platform, or getting hit by a monster, black hole, or alien space ship, along the way.
Easy enough, right?
Sure it is.
Along the way, you will see little red marks with the names of other players who have been playing recently, showing you how far they have progressed.
It has become my most recent life goal to make it onto the Top 100 High Scores for this game. So far about 30k points is as high as I can get…so I still have a ways to go…but I’m going to get there.
This game invokes some of the greatest of the old school arcade game style play. The main character reminds me of Q*bert, and the game play actually reminds me quite a bit of Donkey Kong…but the game itself is totally original…more FEELING like those old classics than actually knocking them off.
The game is $0.99. What the heck are you waiting for?
