Lima Sky, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment Announce Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes
Independent game studio Lima Sky is teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment to develop Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes, a whimsical mashup of two iconic properties. The first installment, now available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, contains the timeless “jump ‘em up” gameplay of Doodle Jump infused with Batman and his famous Rogues’ Gallery. Future updates to the game include other DC Comics’ Super Heroes, including Superman and Wonder Woman, and their nemeses.
Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes is developed by Lima Sky, and is licensed and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on behalf of DC Entertainment.
“We at Lima Sky are thrilled to bring Doodle Jump into the amazing worlds of DC Comics Super Heroes,” noted Igor Pusenjak, co-founder of Lima Sky. “We’ve been lifelong fans of the Batman universe and brand.”
The initial Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes episode takes place in the fabled crime-ridden Gotham City, as The Doodler dons Batman’s cowl to chase down infamous villains, who have stolen powerful energy crystals that threaten the well-being of countless innocents. Players jump and fight their way up, up, up Gotham City’s historic skyline to battle Batman’s archenemies: The Joker, Penguin, Mr. Freeze and more. Fans can also fly the Bat-Copter or use the Bat-Jet to chase villains to new heights, or utilize the Bat-Grappling Gun to stop their fall.
“We’re excited to bring the DC Comics brand to such a highly successful and widely approachable mobile game as Doodle Jump,” said Greg Ballard, Senior Vice President, Mobile, Social and Emerging Platforms, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes gives fans a unique, fun and easy way to interact with their favorite Super Heroes.”
Doodle Jump, the #3 best-selling paid app of all time, is celebrating its fifth anniversary.
Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes is available now as a free download on the App Store, and is coming to the Android and Amazon Appstores in 2015.
