Lima Sky's often-imitated mobile hit Doodle Jump is going to make you jump, jump, in an upcoming iteration. The developer has announced that a Kinect version is on the way. There are no details about this console port yet, like a release date or even how you would play that. Tilting your body to control the direction of the character's movement, we suppose?

In addition, Lima Sky is marking the app's two-year anniversary with other forthcoming Doodle Jump additions, including a multiplayer update for iPhone, an iPad version, and tie-in toys and comic books. Presumably the comics will have a bit more narrative depth to them then "Doodler jumped up onto platforms forever."

Lima Sky Unveils Expansion Plans, Celebrates 10 Millions Paid Downloads and Doodle Jump's 2nd Birthday New York, NY -- March 15, 2011 - Just in time for its second birthday, Doodle Jump announces surpassing 10 million paid mobile downloads. Since bursting onto the App Store in March 2009, Doodle Jump has captured the hearts and minds of casual gamers around the world thanks to its playful art style, sublime tilt controls and charming protagonist, Doodle the Doodler. Hollywood has also taken notice of Doodle Jump's widespread successes as E.B., the star of Universal and Illumination Entertainment's upcoming live action/CG-animated comedy Hop, made a recent cameo in the mega-hit iPhone title.

Lima Sky, the creative force behind Doodle Jump, is set for an ambitious expansion of the franchise with development plans to bring Doodle Jump to XBLA Kinect, one of the hottest sectors in console gaming. A free multiplayer update will be out very soon for the iPhone version, and the long-awaited Doodle Jump for iPad is, well, still in the works. Tapping into their creative juices, Lima Sky is designing Doodle Jump for iPad to include brand new content. With Doodle Jump stationery sets published earlier this month, a new line of Doodle Jump toys in development, and an upcoming Doodle Jump comic book, this year is poised to be the biggest yet for one of the mobile's most famous franchises.

"After such incredible first two years, it is safe to say Doodle Jump has exceeded even our wildest imaginations," says Igor Pusenjak, founder of Lima Sky. "We are looking forward to bringing even more amazing content to millions of Doodle Jump fans around the world."
