iDork is an iPhone app that reminds me a little of Doodle Jump, but they are published by two different companies.

iDork is an iPhone app that reminds me a little of Doodle Jump, but they are published by two different companies. However, there still are a lot of similarities, like the graphics are hand-drawn, the background is a loose-leaf paper, and there are holes in the paper that look identical to Doodle Jump’s. The big difference is that in iDork, you want to enter into the holes as they move you from one level to the next, whereas in Doodle Jump, you try to avoid them. There are enough differences in the games that I think you’ll want to pick up iDork to play.

Instead of jumping up on little platforms to rack up points, your main objective is to get to that hole in the paper whilst running up a pathway that you’ve drawn on the screen. There are oodles of hurdles that try to stop you from achieving your goal. Your player is a hand-drawn character that walks on any plane you draw.

One of the things I like about iDork over Doodle Jump is that you can choose which one of three worlds to start from. Each world’s opening screen starts out the with instructions on how to play in the background of a real game. The game is simple, in theory: Get from Point A to Point B without getting killed. There are several ways that can happen. You could fall to your depths into a sea of pointed pencils, get shot at by guns, or eaten by sharks. Every level gives you something new to avoid. I would have liked to have seen a scoreboard for getting through to the next level, or at least a check mark to show me which level I’ve already mastered. Other than that, it’s great fun!
