App sensation Doodle Jump to land on Kinect via Xbox Live
Kinect to get Doodle Jump invasion
Mobile application mega hit Doodle Jump is to hit Xbox Live Arcade as a downloadable mini-game fully compatible with Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect peripheral, developers Lima Sky have announced.
An app sensation for the iPhone and Android devices with more than 10 million paid for downloads, Lima Sky’s plans for a Kinect compatible Doodle Jump release follow musings for a full optimised iPad release and multiplayer options for iPhone gamers.
"After such incredible first two years, it is safe to say Doodle Jump has exceeded even our wildest imaginations," said Lima Sky founder, Igor Pusenjak. He added: "We are looking forward to bringing even more amazing content to millions of Doodle Jump fans around the world."
Doodle Jump’s move to mainstream games consoles will not be the first such move from an application born game. Arguably the most renowned mobile app in the world, Angry Birds has been confirmed by developer Rovio to be heading to all major platforms, consoles and numerous other outlets with an extra-dimensional offering scheduled to hit the upcoming Nintendo 3DS later in the year.
