Fat Jump is a uniquely themed platform to platform arcade adventure in the vein of classics like Doodle Jump. Playing the game is an enormously addicting yet surprising straight forward ordeal. Using tilt controls, players are challenged with guiding their hungry hero onto one platform after another as he continues on his endless journey upwards in pursuit of the Purple Monster who stole his stash of healthy snacks. Simply put: Its engaging mobile entertainment that might just teach younger users that it pays to eat healthy and stay active!

The gamers green hero jumps automatically, and its up to you to make sure he lands safely on platforms, picks up all the stray fruits, vegetables, and gold coins he comes across, and avoids fast food disasters on the way up. After all, after one too many greasy burgers our little green guy will get to fat to jump, and its game over for you!

On the technical front the game features a simple well designed user interface, cartoon graphics that are sure to light up even the most jaded mobile gamers eyes, and responsive controls which allow you to put your energy into the game itself rather than on mastering convoluted gameplay mechanics.

SID_On's comments:
The game, which aims to educate via entertaining is based around the concept of gathering healthy food (fruits and vegetables) scattered around the game levels while avoiding the fattening treats (cookies and various fast-food offerings). Depending on the foodstuffs eaten, the hero becomes leaner of fatter and either jumps higher or gets more ponderous and moves with difficulty. The control scheme of the new game is very intuitive and revolves around the concept of moving the phone or tablet itself.
This new application, with its climate reminiscent of Doodle Jump and Icy Tower has the definitive advantage of having a genuine educational value.
An additional feature, that makes the new offering more appealing is the possibility of purchasing additional equipment for the Green Hero, by which he is able to bet levels faster. The users who manage to collect enough coins, can help the protagonist by use of various springs, propellers, wings or rockets. The players will also find interesting the achievement list that awards certain actions and feats.

Game Impressions

Pretty cute.

Sure Doodle Jumpers come a dime a dozen but this one has some cute unique gimmicks.

-Boatloads of upgradeable power-ups: You can extend your flight time from wings, how high a spring gets you, etc. While it, of course, offers you the opportunity to buy more coins via IAPs, you can easily earn enough through gameplay and achievements (when you make achievements, depending on the difficulty, the game offers you some 5-15 bonus coins). Also none of the shop items are one use thingies.

-A clever good/bad food system: Eat healthy foods for points (even more if you manage to pick-up several good foods in a row) and naughty foods that not only give you no points, they'll fatten you up (meaning you can't jump as high and wear out the platforms much quicker). Luckily eating good foods will counteract the naughty ones and bring your weight back down. Cookies and cupcakes are clearly in the bad food list but I'm not sure about hamburgers (I'm assuming the game would consider that fast food and therefore bad).

-Dual use rockets: You can shoot your limited rockets at baddies to eliminate them OR aim for your feet to give yourself a boost when no platform is nearby.

-Nice retina graphics and very intuitive/smooth tilt jumping.

I like the physics jumping is smooth and easy. Good job with rocket jumps they are saving life when there are a lot of moving platforms

Yeah, grr. My comments were honest and unpaid but most of these other accounts were invented today with some feeble handful of posts posted in other threads so as not to be that obvious.

SID_On, please cease and desist from this practice unless you are looking to get banned yourself from the forums.

Hey Sid_On,

Is the "More Rockets!!!" upgrade working as intended? With each upgrade I have a higher capacity in how many rockets I can carry but I still only start the game with 3 rockets. It also seems a bit odd that this upgrade doesn't increase its value with each upgrade like the others. If this is the intended function why not change the descriptive text to, "You can now carry up to X rockets." As of now it really sounds like I'll be starting the game with MORE rockets which is clearly not the case.
