Star Ride is a Doodle Jump style arcade game where players must bounce off stars in order to soar higher into the night sky. Players will start on Earth and then jump up in hopes of chaining together different star jumps to get a new highscore.
Players start the game by flicking up on the screen to jump up and control movement by dragging their finger across the screen. Once you hit a star you’ll have to keep hitting them to keep jumping up. There are also different coloured stars that will give you temporary multipliers and boost your score.
Visually the game hosts a simple but effective presentation that suits the tone of the game. The serene soundtrack also helps in setting the mood and giving the game a calming, casual feel. The game features one main game mode with access to global leaderboards via OpenFeint.
Star Ride is a tranquil play that fans of Doodle Jump or any other highflying arcade game will enjoy. The game doesn’t have that many power-ups to help you out, so it’s up to you to concentrate on where you move your character if you want to go for the highscore. The online score access via OpenFeint means there’s always room for personal improvement and the option to use your iPod during gameplay keeps things fresh. So if you enjoy this style iPhone game and casual gaming, then Star Ride is worth a look at.

"Star Ride is a fun and rewarding game with a unique style and appearance. The hand drawn graphics are high quality and give the game loads of charm. The sounds are captivating and soothing. With all the cookie cutter Apps in the Store, Star Ride is a nice burst of fresh energy. If you like carefully crafted games with nice feel and pick up and play ability, Star Ride is a must have."
"A gently soothing oddity which requires you to propel a hand-drawn character into the night sky by leaping from star to star. The synth-laden music and twinkling sound effects lull you into an almost hypnotic state. Perfect for stressful commutes"
"I really enjoyed this game [...] is just so musical and soothing that it is really just a great game to play."

"The game really feels like a unique experience when you can propel yourself from one star into the next, and so on. If you can get lucky and land at least five in a row to keep going directly up, the sounds of hitting the stars almost feels like it’s making a song."
Star Ride is an ability based game where you control the flight of your character, up to the highest point in the sky, jumping from star to star.
Every star you hit will make you fly higher and will increase your score. Take the blue stars to increase your score multiplier.
It's very easy to pick up and play, making it the perfect kind of game for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Its hand drawn graphics and an its original music contribute to create a surreal and unique atmosphere.
To play, move the character horizontally with your finger, swipe up just to jump on the first star, then follow the other falling stars to fly as high as possible. To pause the game and go back to the main menu, tap the screen with two fingers.
