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.
