Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Let's Jump is an arcade game very similar in scope to the popular Doodle Jump app. Players try to get their onscreen blob as high as they can without falling. What's different with this version, though, is the ability to play against others in a race to the top (and not suffer a catastrophic fate if you miss a step). Online play is achieved through Game Center as well as local Bluetooth and a pass-and-play same room method. While players can compete with strangers, there is no other interaction in the game, making it relatively safe. Users can share high scores via the Game Center or Crystal social networks, but participation is optional.

QUALITY

Jumping platform games are becoming a crowded field in the App Store, so to stand out new ones need to do something different. LET'S JUMP is hardly revolutionary, but it gets enough right that it's worth a second look. The universal app support -- letting the same game be played on both iPhone and iPad -- is very welcome and the multiplayer mode adds a few tweaks (like not killing you instantly when you miss a platform) that make the game more fun. That said, there's a definite sense of deja vu to this app -- and if you've grown tired of Doodle Jump at this point, you won't find anything here to reinvigorate your love for the genre.
