Doodle Jump hitting XBLA this summer

Kinect-required arcade game launching later this summer two years after game was originally announced.

Two years after it was originally announced, mobile hit Doodle Jump will launch this summer on Xbox Live for $5, Lima Sky announced today. It requires the Kinect to play.

Doodle Jump for XBLA adapts the vertical platforming gameplay of the original mobile game for play with the Kinect. Players will move their bodies left and right to control the Doodler, while firing nose balls with arm gestures and flying by flapping their arms.

"We've brought the Doodler onto new platforms before, but never like this," Lima Sky co-founder Igor Pusenjak said in a statement.

Doodle Jump for XBLA includes exclusive content like three all-new worlds, new bosses, achievements, and power-ups. The $1 mobile game is the third most popular paid app overall for iOS devices.

I wouldn't want it for Kinect. The Smartphone version is decent. A go time waster when you're bored and in a long line.

$5 to move my body and flap my hands around? No thanks, I do these things everyday.  Plus even if it had an option for a controller, it would be boring in a minute.

One of the most addictive and annoying games on phones / tablets.

This is probably the one game that would suck on anything else but mobile, Then they add Kinect on top of that?

"The $1 mobile game that is 3rd most popular paid app overall on ios devices 3 years ago will cost you $10 on XBLA". WHAT A DEAL!!

Playing this game using Kinect? Sounds horrible.

Don't knock it until you try it. Would sound more boring playing with a controller.

Why? Simple! It is a game designed for the simplicity of a phone with only touch-screen controls. Constantly moving upwards...yay.

This is a step back for consoles.

And why? Did it eat your baby? Is it in some way preventing some other game from coming out? Who died and left you the console gatekeeper? 

No one is making you buy it, it does not in any way affect you by its existence, so why the needless hate and bashing? It in no way affects you, so why do you even care?
