Doodle Jump opens up a checkered world for all players to control the Doodler character to jump across as many platforms as possible while using special items.
The game was originally released for mobile devices but has since been ported to numerous other platforms, especially online websites.
The game has been a commercial success, with over 10 million copies sold as of 2016. It has also received numerous awards and accolades, including being named the "iPhone Game of the Year" by Apple in 2010.
The game's popularity has led to numerous spin-offs and imitations, including "Doodle Jump Christmas Special," "Doodle Jump for Kinect," and "Doodle Jump SpongeBob SquarePants Edition."
In the game, players control a character named The Doodler, who must navigate an endless series of platforms by jumping from one to the other. The game uses arrow keys to control, with players pressing the right or left arrow key to move the character in that direction.
As the player progresses through the game, the platforms become more difficult to navigate, and new enemies and obstacles are introduced. Along the way, players can collect power-ups and bonuses that can help them jump higher or defeat enemies more easily.
