Doodle Jump is one of the most selling games of all time. The game title itself says, ‘Be Warned, Its Insanely Addictive‘ and by this you can judge how the game will be. The game’s concept is very simple. You have a simple, cute doodle to jump on tiles and guide his way to success.
The game isn’t very complicated to play with. You just have to worry about the scores, which also can be achieved with a little practice. You encounter a lot of unpredictable, irregular shaped creatures a.k.a Aliens in Doodle Jump. You encounter a UFO when you go very high thats about above 20,000. You can shoot them by the beak of the doodle. You have to tap onto the phone for the shooting. You sometimes encounter broken tiles which when you step on, break and then you drop and you fail.
You can choose between directional shooting in the Options menu. The difference in directional shooting is when its On, where you tap, the cannon will go that way, if its off, it will go automatically to the alien.
You have a Scores & Stats option in the game. You have your high-scores of the game. The higher you go in the game, the higher you get your name in the achievements board. Like most of the games, this game does support Game Center.
On the bottom of the game, you get lot of themes. You can choose between space theme, graveyard theme for the Free Version. On the Premium version, you have the previous 2 themes plus christmas theme, forest adventure theme.
While playing the game, you get a number of add-ons to add to your score. Sometimes you get a propeller hat to get up to a certain height. You then get jumping shoes to jump on tiles
You don’t get local challenge in the free version. The Local Challenge refers from 2 people upto 8 people playing the game. You choose the number of people and turn by turn people play and the system chooses the winner by the best highscore.
You now have the ability to score and then post your achievements and show them to Facebook and Twitter. Overall the feel of the game is simple. The app loads up fast. No tension, just simple and worry-free
Cost of the App: $0.99
PROS: Simple game, inexpensive, new concept
CONS: Unresponsive motion of the doodle, very difficult on high altitudes.
