Draw Jump



Simple -- but somewhat addictive -- bouncing game.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

This is an incredibly easy game to learn and to use. The longer you play, the more difficult it becomes (mostly when obstacles start to appear), but it takes a long time for the game to get really hard.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Draw Jump is a neverending (until you lose) bouncing game, in which you use your finger to draw elastic lines under a little rocket. Each time the rocket hits the little trampoline you've sketched, it will bounce farther up into the sky. Then your line vanishes and you draw another to keep the bouncing going. If the rocket misses your line, it simply falls off-screen; there is no crash or violent end to the rocket. While this version will play on the iPad, a separate version with high definition graphics exists called Draw Jump HD and it costs $2.99.

Is it any good?


DRAW JUMP is one of those app games in which you basically only need to do one thing over and over. In this case, you're drawing a little line to catch and relaunch cute rocket character. What makes it addictive is how easy it is in the beginning. You build up your confidence with a simple start, and then when the speed gets ramped up and obstacles start getting in the way, you're psyched and ready for a challenge. The adorably surreal look of the game adds some extra appeal.
