Is It Any Good?

Kids say (8):

DOODLE JUMP is one of the members of the app store royal family -- and justifiably so. The title is, as advertised, insanely addictive, and achieves this with simple, but never simplistic, gameplay. The iPad version, which was long in coming, doesn't really add to the experience, though. There's an extra theme, which is nice, but that's about it. And tilting the iPad is much more tiring than playing the game on a handheld device.

Admittedly, that extra theme -- a race-themed multiplayer -- is a blast, though, and the game hasn't gotten any less fun. If you don't own a smartphone or iPod touch, this is an obvious choice. If you do, though, there's not much incentive to pay $3 for another copy of essentially the same game.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
