Doodle Jump soars to 10 million sales; Kinect version on the way

Doodle Jump has proven to be a huge release for Lima Sky, with the two brothers who run the company, Igor Pusenjak and Marko Pusenjak, announcing earlier today that the game has been downloaded over 10 million times across iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices.

The premise of the game is simple, with the aim of guiding “Doodle the Doodler” up a sheet of graph paper via the tilt controls on the iPhone/iPod touch or iPad. You have to dodge enemies, land on platforms and get as high as you possibly can, before you plummet back down to the ground.

The company is not content to just sit back and rest on its laurels though, especially if an article on Venture Beat is anything to go by. Lima Sky plans to release Doodle Jump on the iPad, a Doodle Jump set of toys, a comic book and a new version of the game for Kinect for Xbox 360. In addition, Lima Sky will also be releasing a multiplayer update for the game for iPad, iPhone and Android users in the near future.

A game such as Doodle Jump should make a move to Kinect fairly smoothly, thanks mostly to the simple controls. Moving left or right in front of the Kinect sensor is likely to be used for character movement, with very little other motion controls needed.

Doodle Jump stood in second place on the all-time top paid iPhone Apps back in January, based on Apple’s sales figures, just behind Angry Birds.
