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

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.

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.
