So I thought since someone was making Doodle Jump for the Atari 2600 that I thought I would try to. What looks simple is actually complex, too complex for me, especially with the scrolling, so I decided to make a game SORT OF like Doodle Jump. There's platforms, an always jumping character, but instead of scrolling, the platform you just jumped on disappears, so you're always trying to jump on a platform. I just started on the game, so this is all I have so far. What do you think?

Great idea, I love these kind of games.

A couple of years ago I was thinking of doing one myself but I'm simply lacking time & skills.

Did a mock-up for it though.

Despite my horrible eyeache last night, I worked on the game. I also worked on it a little bit more this morning. Here's what I have so far. I have a playable binary file right now, but there's no score. This should give you a sense of what I want to create.

I did not know the game, so I went to AA to find out more about doodle jump and downloaded the rom. It's a fun and addictive game, so it's a good idea to follow this project, Chris. As usual, the hints: Fun sprites add fun to the game, Janzl has good sprites, maybe you could use them. You could also try a fun springy sound, or something like that ...Go ahead!!!!

Replaced the sprites to look more like Janzl's.

It took a while and a few false starts, but I have a semi-working version of Doodle Jump here. The score will be on the right hand side of the screen. This is so the platforms' x positions can be fair to get to without having to go through the whole screen to get to one. What do you think?
