Anyone who has battled an addiction to Doodle Jump, the fiendishly simple and hugely popular platform game with the bouncing insecty thing, may hesitate before downloading Jungle Bug. This time the object is to guide your critter self down not up, tilting the device to navigate scrolling platforms, while catching glow worms and avoiding monsters. Too slow and you get squished. It’s fun for a bit and looks good, but lacks the lo-fi charm or immediate playability of its rival. But that’s good news if you’ve got, you know, other things to do.
