So Android fans finally rejoiced when Temple Run for the Android platform was announced as available … and free! So I never played this game and do not plan to because games like this do not interest me.
I mean, a game that has no goal or climax other than getting a high score is no fun for me. Sure, I did play Doodle Jump and enjoyed it when I went up against my wife but even I had enough of Doodle Jump.
I kept hearing this game from my friends who kept on suggesting I download it for iOS and Android. After seeing the game, I said to myself “not another Doodle Jump”-a like game.
I am not saying this is a bad game. The graphics are pretty good and overall I think the company behind Temple Run did a good job making this game.
The game forces you to keep on avoiding obstacles as you run away from evil demon monkeys because you have stolen the cursed idol from the temple. Sounds easy? Perhaps. But the pace of the game is what makes this challenging.
The moment you blink could be the moment the game is over so this game tests your reflexes as well. However, this is not my cup of tea so enjoy it if you will.
If you visit Doodle Jumps’s page in iTunes, it says it is insanely addictive. I was not a believer at first since I was the only one playing the game. But after my wife played the game and dared to challenge me to top her score, we have been at it trying to beat each other out.
And I can say this is truly a very addictive game. That is … if you have someone else to compete. This is where games get played over and over when it involves more than one player. It got even crazier when the makers of Doodle Jump, Lima Sky added new features to the game like the multiplayer options
The game is really simple and it is not that new. There are already games like this before. Yet, Doodle Jump’s simple graphics and cute designs make this a simply lovable game. If you want to enhance the graphics, there are multiple themes if you find the classic one boring you.
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 monsters with nose balls along the way.
Tilt right or left. Tap your finger on the screen to fire against the enemies and reach for the top score!
