Operation Going Up- The Next Doodle Jump



What many of you have been waiting for: the next Doodle Jump.

Not only clad in pixel retro graphics and kick butt music, but also carefully crafted with the most technically advanced game play ever engineered. From a hand crafted balancing system, to a carefully thought out scoring mechanism, all the way to the necessities of OpenFeint.
Following on the heels of Pixel Warrior, Koh Jing Yu and DGH94 are creating Operation Going Up. Deemed 'the Next Doodle Jump,' it is sure to make its own path through the maze of the App Store. Scheduled for late Spring 2010, Operation Going Up will include 6 modes, and enough obstacles to make the mess in your room look like the size of an amoeba.
As more and more work is crafted and polished, we will be posting screen shots and factlets on this thread, and my Twitter (@_DGH94_) from time to time. So keep on checking back to stay in the know of Operation Going Up.




*Much of what you see will be changed. So please don't hold back suggestions, criticism, etc. We try to please everyone!

Here's some factlets to get this thread started:

First Operation GU fact: There will be a variety of obstacles, but not those that you would find in Doodle Jump. Any guesses?

Ok, second fact: Unlike Doodle Jump, the screen does not wrap. There are walls on either side of the screen. But why?

Operation Going Up will have include a variety of iPhone only features, including touch, flick, drag, shake, & tilt. (All of them, so a bit of manipulating will concur.)

Fact: Operation Going Up forces you to keep going UP & Up! Go too slow, and you're swallowed by the rapidly approaching lava!

Operation Going Up: I hope you like colors... You'll need them to advance. Otherwise, you'll turn to dust...

OGU will have 6 modes: Survival Beginner Expert Time Trial Height Flight Classic


All of these are pulled from my Twitter, and more info is released every 5 followers, so if you're not following me already, it would be a smart thing to start.
