Doodle Jump by Lima Sky is $0.99 to download in the app store. It’s an endless jumper game where you’ll jump from platform to platform, jumping to see just how high you can get! It’s not as easy as it sounds seeing as some of these platforms are moving, broken, explosive and even disappearing! The animation is basic and crafty, with the backdrop being a piece of graph paper with rips as black holes! There are in-app purchases available ranging from $0.99 to $9.99 for different sized coin, candy and egg packs.
When playing Doodle Jump, you’ll tilt left or right to move from side to side, and tap the screen to shoot. You can use the green platforms to jump off of, along with the moving blue ones. Beware of the brown platforms with a crack down the middle. You’ll fall right through them, dropping down and killing you. As you progress in the game, you’ll come across platforms that disappear right in front of your eyes, along with ones that will explode! There are monsters and traps that you’ll have to look out for, but not to worry because there are plenty of power-ups to get you through! I’ll have to admit that it’s a pretty challenging game. The tilt controls are extremely touchy, so you have to learn how to move slowly and gently. I absolutely love how the scene changes so frequently! You’ll go from riding in rockets in outer space to a submarine under the ocean! Doodle Jump is a must have app! It’s a great pastime, especially if you don’t have Wi-Fi!

iTunes describes Doodle Jump like so:
In Doodle Jump, you guide Doodle the Doodler—using some of the most subtle and accurate tilt controls in existence—on a springy journey up, up, up a sheet of graph paper, picking up jet packs, avoiding black holes, and blasting baddies with nose balls along the way. Laugh with delight as Doodle™ blows past other players’ actual score markers scribbled in the margins. And be warned: this game is insanely addictive.
