There are adverts for this game all over the forums and main website!

The main website add is pretty clever as it looks just like a review article... except rather annoyingly clicking on it tries to open it in the appstore... which means that from my work computers i have no idea what the game is actually about.

I found a video on youtube... and it looks pretty basic.... but kind of fun.

I was just very curious though as its some pretty dominant advertising and for such a low budget looking product i was wondering where they got the money to spend on the advertising? (not saying it looks like a bad game btw... just saying it doesn't look like the dev had much money to spend on it)

Its a simple type/genre of game, its very well done for what it is, and its been in the top prolly 25 of app store for a while now-what more do you need to know

I'll end up getting it probably then.
Can't believe i have never noticed it before if its a top listed game lol... i buy so many apps.

I was just impressed / curious with the amount of advertising behind it and was wondering if it was from a big developer / company or from one of the websites mods.

Yeah idk about that, its pretty good though, and if you have played papijump then its pretty much a more advanced version of that. The concept is just that you try to jump from platform to platform going up, but its well executed in doodle jump.
