Addictive app no longer in vogue but still charming

While Doodle Jump certainly isn't as popular as it once was, it still possesses the same addictive charm that hooked players during its prime. With easy, intuitive controls and appealingly simplistic visuals, this is a good choice for young kids--there are, however, crudely drawn monsters that if hit will knock the player from the sky.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (50 ):

In this irresistible game a little green alien -- aka the Doodler -- bounces up a sheet of graph paper from one platform to the next, all while avoiding meanies. The quirky graphics and sound effects are memorable, especially the monsters' funny "rom-de-rom" grumblings. Other players' scores are scribbled in the margins of the game as you fly up the page, which is a great touch. Frequent updates keep the game fresh with new creatures to avoid.

Did we miss something on diversity?
