Doodle Jump for Kinect has hopped onto the Xbox 360 today, the first time Doodle The Doodler has rocketed into gamers’ living rooms. Doodle Jump for Kinect is available now for download on Xbox Live as an Xbox Live Arcade game for 400 Microsoft Points. It requires Kinect for Xbox 360 to play. But you knew that by its name, right?
Crafted specifically for Kinect for Xbox 360, Doodle Jump for Kinect blends the series’ traditional gameplay with a new gesture and motion control system, delivering a new play scheme that should be welcome to veteran Doodle Jump fans.
In addition to the new motion-controlled gameplay mechanic, Doodle Jump for Kinect also adds a host of additional features such as three original worlds to scale, robust power-ups and challenging boss battles. And, yes, Achievements.
Developed in association with Smoking Gun Interactive and D3Publisher, Doodle Jump for Kinect brings the flagship franchise’s cherished mascot, whimsical art style and vertically scrolling design to the Xbox 360.
“The original joy of Doodle Jump was that you could play it anywhere, anytime, thanks to its easy-to-use motion-based design,” said Lima Sky co-founder Igor Pusenjak. “Doodle Jump for Kinect interprets motion controls in a new way and makes it an incredibly fun group experience.”
