First it was Angry Birds Seasons. Then it was Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift. Now Doodle Jump Christmas Special is the latest game to come out with a holiday edition. Featuring a Christmas themed background, your task is to help Doodle jump all the way to the North Pole.

Lima Sky promises there will be free updates to this version, just like the original Doodle Jump, and the game supports Game Center, so you can see who among your friends gets to the North Pole first.

My feelings towards holiday themed games alternate between admiration for smart marketing, and disillusion that it’s just another cash cow. Of the three holiday games listed above, only Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift is free. Goodwill from the developer in releasing a free game resulted in my purchasing the full version. I’m not sure that I’ll check out Doodle Jump Christmas Special. I just don’t have room in my life for another super addictive game. I think.

Doodle Jump Christmas Special is available on the app store for $0.99 and is a universal app.
