Pokémon: Magikarp Jump
by: The Pokemon Company • 315.2K
To become the true Pokémon champion here, you’ll have to raise the lowliest, weakest Pokémon known to man: Magikarp. In Pokemon: Magikarp Jump, you’ll get almost the same Pokémon-like experience. Only this time, instead of using special moves to take on enemies, you’ll raise your Magikarp to jump the highest in one-on-one jump battles. Designed for the iOS and Android, you’ll lovingly raise your Magikarp, feeding it the right kind of meals, going through different training regiments, and take on other Magikarp in jumping competitions across eight leagues. Can you become the ultimate Magikarp champ?
One of the things I enjoyed about this game is that it instantly looks, sounds, and feels just like a classic Pokémon game with a sweet infusion of pet-breeding mechanics that, along with the one-on-one jump battles, are strangely addicting.
Unlike classic Pokémon, don’t expect to find a deep experience while playing through Magikarp Jump, as the story is mostly filler, jump battles are far too straightforward and lack any kind of strategy, and the game just doesn’t capture the authentic Pokémon charm, thanks to its limited, repetitive pet-breeding mechanic.
