Is It Any Good?

Given how incredibly successful Doodle Jump is -- and how many clones of the game exist -- a little trepidation about Sonic Jump is understandable. But once you start playing the game, you realize that the developers took the best parts of that game and blended them with the best parts of the Sonic franchise.

The game is a true Sonic title, but one that's based vertically, rather than horizontally. Platforms do more than sit there, though. They turn on gears and rise and fall on hydraulics. Sonic, meanwhile, must dodge an increasing number of obstacles the further you advance. The game starts slow to get you used to the gameplay, then ratchets up the frenetic speed you've come to expect from a Sonic title.
