sketchbook squad Everyone loves getting something for nothing, and if you’re one of those folks Orange Pixel has just the thing for you. Yesterday they released their free summer game, and it goes by the name of Sketchbook Squad.sketchbook.squad-2 Sketchbook Squad is an endless jumping game in the vein of Doodle Jump, but with Orange Pixel’s quirky retro style. The goal of the game is to simply see how high you can jump without dying, and you’ll do this by tilting your device left to right. Rockets and soda cans will give you a bit of a boost, but if you miss the platforms you’ll plummet to your death. Some of them are stable while others move or crumble beneath your feet. The countless lasers, saw blades, and giant bullets will kill you just the same so you’ll need to have quick reflexes if you want to make it to the top of the Leaderboards. There are no levels in Sketchbook Squad due to its endless nature, but there are several unlockable characters. After yousketchbook.squad-1 reach a certain height you’ll unlock a “chapter” which gives you a different character to play with. There are 9 in all, and there’s no way to unlock them—you’re going to have to earn them the old fashioned way. Sketchbook Squad may be light in extras department, but it does give you access to Leaderboards and Achievements through Google Plus Game Services. Doodle Jump was one of the first Android games I’ve played, any may clones have come and gone since then. Sketchbook Squad may not be the most original game we’ve seen this week, but it is the coolest retro jumping game you’re likely to play. Orange Pixel did a great job as always, and the game is ad-supported, but totally free.
