Doodle Jump appropriately comes with a formidable warning of “insanely addictive!” thanks to its continuous gameplay requiring little to no learning curve. The mission is to “jump, jump, jump to the top, top, top” bouncing from one platform the next using a variety of boosters like springs, jet packs, and propeller hats which you can pick up along the way.
To navigate Doodler left/right on his ascent, utilize your Android device’s accelerometer and tilt your Android device slightly to the left or right. Much like in the classic game Pac-Man, exiting the screen on the right side reenters you on the left, giving you more options for each of your jumps. By tapping the screen you can also shoot Doodler’s “nose balls” which will blast “baddies” out of your way. Hitting them as you fly upward or getting sucked into the black holes will immediately end your run.
Your score accumulates proportionally to the height Doodler reaches and isn’t related to how long you’re jumping or the number of monsters you blast, so focus on getting higher and higher. After each game you can enter your name to record your total in the local high scores list. If you think your best is good enough to compete with all other Android users, upload it to the online scoreboard.
A unique, additional feature of this Android game is in the “stats” section which keeps track of all Doodle Jump related statistics like total play time, average score, total jumps, and jetpack flights, among other interesting details.
- Simple, addicting gameplay with a short time commitment
- Accelerometer or touch screen control of Doodler
- Multiple themes (backgrounds) to choose from
- Smooth, high resolution graphics
Areas for improvement:
- Separate high scores by theme (since some are more difficult than others)
Conclusion: The Doodle Jump Android game is extremely popular and highly addicting with great replay value (especially since you’re competing against yourself and other Android users for the highest scores).
