Ultra popular game Doodle Jump is turning four years old today and in celebration, the best selling iPad app is available for free for the first time ever. First introduced in March of 2009, Doodle Jump has been played more than 5 billion times.
According to developer Lima Sky, that means Doodle has made enough leaps to bounce an astronaut back and forth between the earth and the sun a total of six times. That’s a crazy amount of jumping! Doodle Jump has also been recognized as the number three Top Paid Apple App of all time, which is an impressive feat.
I don’t know what it is about playing master of the universe, but games where players take on the role of an overlord are always exceptionally popular. Remember Black and White? Countless people loved serving up natural disasters and ordering their creatures to devour pious peasants (myself included).

Meet James Walsh, long time Apple fan, first time iPad accessory developer. Walsh’s Kickstarter campaign hopes to raise a modest £3,000 to bring his bamboo iPad case, which sports one of Apple’s earliest print ads to life.
The bamboo case snaps on to the back of the iPad, and is engraved with a recreation of the Apple Computer Company’s original 1976 print advertisement for its first device, the Apple-1. The wood of Walsh’s case mimics the wood design of the Apple-1, but has the advantage of being lightweight, flexible, and sustainable.
