Description

Use your doodling powers to direct Bob (the Doodle Rider) aroundobstacles as he collects stars and gifts. Bob will roll down andbounce off of the lines that you draw so you'll need some realingenuity to successfully navigate the unpredictable world ofDoodle Bob! Watch out for rockets and lightening bolts and otherdevious traps.Doodle Bob! employs a novel control system. Tappingon Bob causes him to bounce up, while dragging on the screen drawslines that Bob will bounce off of, roll and ride down according torealistic physics. The side-scrolling, randomly generatedenvironment is rich and complex and is rendered in a distinctivedoodley-style that mirrors the drawing aspect of the game. DoodleBob! combines elements from Line Rider-type drawing and scribblinggames with the fast-paced side-scrolling game-play of platformgames like Flappy Bird. The combined effect is totally unlikeeither and is truly original.What makes Doodle Bob! unique is thepuzzle-like quality of the game-play. This is not true of othergames in which the player directs a character by drawing paths. Inthose games (like Scribble Scram, Scribble Run or the original LineRider) the character has some internal means of gaining momentum.By contrast, in Doodle Bob! the only means of acceleration aregravity and the ability to jump or bob. The physics engine isextremely realistic, taking into account both rolling friction andair-resistance. This means the player has to be much smarter abouthow they get Bob from one place to another. Furthermore, thescribble-y doodles you draw have the potential to trap Bob and sothe player needs to plan-ahead in order to avoid this.The result ofthis is that the feel of Doodle Bob! is one of fast-paced problemsolving. No other game provides the combination of intense action,simple randomly-generated puzzles and a creative drawing-basedcontrol system. The partially hand-drawn graphics are moreorganic-looking than other 'doodley' games like Doodle Jump or DrawRider but cleaner and more visually pleasing than the crayon styleof Scribble Scram.Doodle Bob! was inspired by a youth spentscribbling, doodling, or both scribbling and doodling at the sametime. And in a more immediate sense by the popular online game LineRider (cloned by Android game Draw Rider), the game was originallyintended to be a kind of 'live action Line Rider'. The use ofdrawing to control the character works well with the constraints ofa smart-phone touch screen and rationalizes the school exercisebook doodle style of graphics. Kids who spend their time scribblingshapes and drawing caricatures of their teachers during lessonsshould be naturally adept at the game. As of course should the manyadult doodlers out their who scribble their way through businessmeetings.My tips for scoring well are as follows: 1. First of all,make sure you understand the game's physics. The game takesfriction into account and so you should not expect Bob to zoom uplong ramps like in Line Rider. If you wish to ride to the rightthen your lines need to slope downwards. 2. You can use lines formore than just to ride down. For instance if you draw a line abovea spring you can bounce off of the bottom of it and hence directBob in the desired direction. Also, lines can be used to deflectrockets, a feature of the game that less experienced players miss.3. Think about your position in the game window, don't be afraid todraw downward sloping lines to ride down to the left of the screen,this gives you more time to react to objects that appear on theright.Doodle Bob! was created by Ben Deaner (me) mostly over thesummer of 2015. I am an independent developer and made this duringmy scant free-time. I hope you enjoy it.
