Doodle Jump for Kinect Coming to XBLA This Summer

Doodle Jump for Kinect is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade this summer, bringing the addictive, vertical-platforming action from the mobile to Xbox 360, making it the first time the game has been released on a home console. It'll only work exclusively with Kinect.
It'll have new content and an entirely new control scheme thanks to Kinect integration, and is being developer by original developer Lima Sky in collaboration with Smoking Gun Interactive. You'll move left and right to control the Doodler, blast nose balls with your arms and fly by flapping your arms. Presumably there'll be some jumping too.
“We’ve brought the Doodler onto new platforms before, but never like this,” said Igor Pusenjak, co-founder of Lima Sky. “The unparalleled freedom afforded by Kinect for Xbox 360 allows us to explore new gameplay experiences we never even imagined were possible when we first developed the original Doodle Jump.”
Packing in three new worlds, new bosses, power-ups and achievements, Doodle Jump for Kinect will be available from the Xbox Live Arcade for 400 Microsoft Points in summer 2013. Check out some screenshots below.
