Might as well jump

Doodle Jump is a fun and addictive platform-jumping game with a cute, hand-scribbled aesthetic and a cleverly integrated leaderboard. Not surprising for such an addictive game, the interface couldn't be more simple: you keep jumping automatically, and you gently tilt the device to move left and right. As you move higher and higher up an infinitely scrolling, wraparound vertical screen, you jump onto an increasingly challenging arrangement of platforms--including moving blue platforms, crumbling brown platforms, white platforms that disappear after one jump, and platforms with jump-boosting springs and jet packs.

You have to tap the screen to shoot the occasional monster or UFO that blocks your path (the game's fittingly bouncy soundtrack provides an early warning), but the core gameplay remains the same: jump as high as you can to increase your score, and your game ends when you misjudge a jump and fall off the bottom of the screen. Doodle Jump also marks the name and height of previous high scores--your own and from Doodle Jumpers around the world--along the edge of the screen, making this already great game even more addictive.
