There's no denying it, Doodle Jump is (or rather was) an incredibly popular title. Previously available on Windows Phone, Doodle Jump was pulled and has since been missing for those who have not yet downloaded it on their handsets.
Today we're pleased to relay news that the cute, little game has returned to Windows Phone 8 with many improvements included. Only one problem: it's no longer a Xbox Live title.
We've had a small play with the new version on Windows Phone 8 and we're impressed by how good it looks on the HD screens (720p, of course - ain't no 1080 'round 'ere). The gameplay also feels smoother and it's indeed optimised for the latest version of Windows Phone, which is a positive as we're not simply looking at the old builds being re-published.
As well as the included support for Windows Phone 8 with HD resolutions and the wide tile, it would appear as though Lima Sky (the creators of Doodle Jump) has taken back their title from Game House, who previously had the game published with Xbox Live support. We're not entirely sure what the situation is, but we're sure glad the little hopper is back for some more platforms.

The project is codenamed 'Latte' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.
