That's a little extreme

This isn't the first blatant Doodle Jump clone -- there have been dozens of generic clones, and at least three or four that I can think of that were almost direct ripoffs down to the only-slightly-altered graphics.

This game, however, isn't a jumping game. It's yet another dodging game. The graphics are similar, but then so are most games with "doodle" in the title. I wouldn't call this a "blatant" ripoff. It's just another completely derivative game trying to ride the success of the original game that inspired them. The silly thing now though is that there are so many clones and games with similar themes that they're all more or less indistinguishable from one another, so it would surprise me quite a bit of any of these games achieve even a handful of daily sales.

Well Doodle Jump was actually a rip off of Papijump. And there were probably lots of similar games even before Papijump. Doodle jump was the most successful game though.
