October 8, 2013 – GameMill Publishing today announced it is bringing Doodle Jump, Lima Sky’s perennially best-selling “jump ‘em up” mobile game, to Nintendo handheld systems for the first time. Developed by Smoking Gun Interactive, two new versions of a modern classic will be out later this year with Doodle Jump Adventures hitting the Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system and Doodle Jump Journey for the Nintendo DS™ handheld system.
“Nintendo is synonymous with great platformers, adorable characters and on-the-go gaming,” noted Igor Pusenjak, co-founder of Lima Sky. “ Doodle Jump is a natural fit on Nintendo’s handhelds. We’re thrilled to bring the Doodler to audiences that have yet to meet him while bringing great new adventures to our existing fans.”
True to its roots, these two titles maintain the accessible, award-winning “pick up and play” gameplay, well-known characters, and unique art style that made the original title the #3 top paid iPhone app of all time. Doodle Jump Adventures for Nintendo 3DS™ introduces exclusive content like a brand new Adventure mode, featuring 48 levels with fun challenges, cool power-ups and menacing boss battles for a unique experience exclusive to Nintendo’s handheld console. It also has the Endless Mode that longtime Doodle Jump fans know and love. Doodle Jump Journey for Nintendo DS™ features the franchise’s three original themes (Classic, Jungle, and Space) in Endless Mode.
Doodle Jump Adventures and Doodle Jump Journey will be available later this year for Nintendo 3DS and DS, respectively. Both these titles are rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. For more information, please visit www.facebook.com/DoodleJump, or follow along at www.twitter.com/doodlejump.
