The DLC, whilst not advertised, costs $1.99. This allows you to:

1) Buy new costumes and scenes
2) Post your high scores
3) Get more content from future updates

...no extra content is downloaded upon buying the DLC - I guess it just unlocks more of the game.

Very nice graphics and if executed properly can be a big hit, I'd kill for a version of little big planet, but that's hard so I'd take a doodle jumped little big planet with tons of rag doll parts... So what's the problem?

The control is horrible, no calibration, nowhere near the pinpoint precise control of doodle jump, there's some weird inertia going on after your tilt that makes it impossible to control.

Please fix the controls add more stages and maybe this can become a hit

I noticed it's harder to control on iPhone 3G. Some kind of lag going on and it performs differently. Works better on iPod touch and iPhone 3GS. I'll be looking at improving it.

I don't think the game needs calibration because only one axis is used.

I'm running on an iPod Touch 3g and I agree that the game needs a calibrate button. That way whether you are standing up or lying down, the accelerometer will work properly. Also, the framerate is a bit off and it does not run that smooth at times.

So far, those are my only concerns. The shadowing looks great and the graphics are amazing. A few tweaks and Puppet Jump could rise through the charts!

I am submitting version 1.1 this morning. The momentum has been decreased and controls improved. The camera will now go below where you've been so you can see what's below you. I also added a ground base so when you first start playing you aren't jumping on air.

BTW Puppet Sprint and Puppet Labyrinth are already in development!

Is this still in the store then? When I check on my touch it brings up the name but when I click on it, there are no matches.

So no calibrate option? Hopefully with improved controls we won't need one. Puppet Labyrinth sounds interesting, I would love to see some screenies if you have!

OpenFeint but I think you can only post your high scores with the full version DLC.
