Name: Bubble Jump

Bubble Jump is a free game just released on Windows Phone Marketplace. Our hero is Rutherford, a cute and cuddly furball with ambitions of soaring into the clouds. Hit the bubbles and power ups as you jump up, but watch out for gravity and obstacles.

Bubble Jump features an endless play mode with increasing challenges, over 100+ handmade bubble 'stages', and 3 power ups.

Download Link: Download here on Zune or please find it in the Marketplace.

Simple but very sweet! Congrats to girl for the perfect idea and boy for right implementation :)

P.S. May be, you should add some funny background music to the Bubble Jump? IMHO, it will be nice...

Thanks for the kind words cnico88 and sensboston We're really happy that you both enjoy the game! We just released our first update, which adds over 50 new handmade "bubble stages" (several phone screens worth of bubbles) for more variety and replayability, a new power up: wings, and more background art. We're hard at work on our next update, which should include (amongst other things) a much needed global leaderboard.

@sensboston: thanks for the music suggestion! We tried out some license free music loops a while ago, but none seemed to fit right. However, we will definitely reconsider it after this feedback!

I normally do not like sound effects in games but this one seemed soothing. I enjoyed playing it.

If I may ask I was wondering how the in game advertisements worked?

The advertisements are served through Microsoft's PubCenter (pubcenter.microsoft.com). Microsoft supports both XNA and Silverlight, and integrating the ads took only about 8 lines of code to set up. You get paid a dollar amount per 1000 impressions, and there's a bidding process on what ads are served. You filter your ads by setting up to 3 broad ad categories, depending on what you feel would best appeal to your audience.

Thanks orb3000 and saywa

@saywa - We're definitely exploring longer power ups, although we'll have to see how they play with the difficulty that we want for the higher elevations. We'll be happy just to get into the top 30 free games list, but happy to hear that you like it

We just released a small update which should be hitting the Marketplace now. It's mostly tweaks and reworks of existing levels to make them flow better. We also adjusted some of the levels which were way too hard. The next update will be substantial.

Enjoy!
