Doodle Jump: HOP The Movie

As addictive as the original app, with heavy film promotion.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

There are no instructions included for this game, but game mechanics are not complex. Level difficulty increases gradually as kids play.

Violence & scariness

Players occasionally shoot things such as Easter eggs at chicks. When E.B. misses a platform he falls from the sky with a whistling sound effect; if he hits a chick, players hear a startling "whomp!" and E.B. sees stars before falling.

The main screen contains several promotional links to the Universal Pictures website for more information about the movie Hop, to the Universal Pictures site for the game trailer, to the AMC Theatres website to purchase tickets to the movie, and to iTunes to purchase the original Doodle Jump app.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Doodle Jump: HOP The Movie is very similar to the regular Doodle Jump app but has been heavily branded with characters and designs from the movie Hop. E.B., the bunny rabbit from the movie, stands in place of the regular Doodler character from Doodle Jump. E.B. automatically keeps hopping while kids tilt their device to steer the hops. The goal is to get to the top of each screen, capturing the egg. Difficulties are encountered along the way such as evil chicks, moving platforms, or disappearing platforms -- all of which can cause E.B. to fall from the screen with a whistling sound. The Hop Easter theme is carried throughout, with pastel colors, Easter eggs, candy hearts, baby chicks, and so on. There are 25 levels to play, each one unlocking after the previous level is completed.

Is it any good?


DOODLE JUMP: HOP THE MOVIE -- like the original Doodle Jump app -- is a game in which each level can be just frustrating enough to keep players coming back for more as they try to finish each level. There are no instructions, which can also cause frustration, but the intuitive gameplay quickly gets kids up to speed. When hopping and leaping to climb up the screen, it's very easy to miss a platform, which often causes bunny E.B. to fall, ending the level. The main character from the original Doodle Jump game joins you at the beginning of the first level, but isn't really a part of this game version. The choices on the main screen make it very clear that this game is a movie tie-in, but the gameplay itself is pretty solid and stands on its own.

Doodle Jump Hop

Epic Waffles here. My profile is This is a fun, simple and easy game, but some younger kids might get frustrated when they die. You jump on platforms, some platforms just kill you, some make you jump higher, and other stuff. Kids can view leaderboards of the best people and high scores as well. It has consumerism because it will make kids want to buy the DVD of the movie.
