Do you remember when mobile game Doodle Jump was all the rage? This game was very popular for a long time. As of 2011, it achieved over 15 million downloads on Google Play and iTunes.
Jumping Joe & Friends is a game that’s definitely inspired by Doodle Jump and can be played up to 4 people. There are many cute characters to choose from, and consists of jumping on platforms until time runs out and you’re the one with more distance going up.
Games like these are fun but really confuse me after a while. I found myself messing up constantly and falling, but that also makes for a funny experience. This is another game that we got during a Nintendo eShop sale for less than $1.

As you may know from my last post, my husband Juan and I revived our Youtube channel and are posting a video every week. Our main focus for the channel is to cover games we can play cooperatively, either through local or online co-op. One game we got a few months ago through a Nintendo eShop sale was Astro Bears Party.
Astro Bears Party is a competitive party game. The goal is to run around the planet and avoid each other’s lines/ribbons. You have a jetpack that can be useful for jumping and hovering. If you’ve played Snake on your phone before smartphones, existed, this game definitely had some inspiration from it.
This game is perfect for short gaming sessions as each game stage is over relatively quickly, but that doesn’t make it any less fun. It’s an entertaining way to kill the time, and the fact that you can play either individually or with up to 3 more players is a great feature to have.
