Simple games are usually the most fun to a lot of people. Aside from these games being easy to learn, you can just pick it up, play it, and stop at any time you want. Simple, Casual games have been on the rise because of this, and Doodle Jump has been one of the games in the forefront of this when the Mobile Platforms came out. Now we have a browser version, and it’s the same great experience you’ve had on the other devices!
Doodle Jump is a casual platformer that lets you play as a little alien that just wants to reach the top, like, literally. The little doodle alien will always be jumping upward at a fixed height and it’s your job to steer it into higher platforms (that it can reach, of course) so that he can get even higher. There will be different stuff along the way that can help you out, or bring you down. One of the first stuff you’ll encounter is a spring. It’s not really dangerous. It’ll make you jump a lot higher and skip a lot of the lower platforms, but this runs the risk of you falling off because the height of your jump will be uncontrolled and can lead you to a place where platforms cannot be reached. There will also be platforms that will break when you step on them, which will be marked with a crack in the middle, as well as it being differently colored. Avoid these platforms at all costs especially if these platforms do not have stable platforms below them. The goal is to just get as high as you can. Falling off the screen will result in a death, and you will have to start over. The alien can simply be controlled by just the left and right arrow keys.
Doodle Jump was one of the first few games that came out with the Java Mobile platform of games. It was pretty fun back then, and playing it now, it’s still pretty addicting and fun. If you’re looking for a good platform game with a bit of a challenge, then you’ve come to the right game. Doodle Jump is a great and simple game to play.
