Pokemon Just Dropped An Entirely New Game For Your Phone!
You can download it for free right now.
Magikarp Jump, a new mobile game from The Pokémon Company, is out today.
The free game, coming to iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, does exactly what it says on the tin: the aim of the game is to get the Magikarp to “soar as high as possible”.
“Feed and develop your Magikarp to maximize the Pokémon’s jump power to reach new heights,” says Pokemon in the press release. “Then compete to see if your Magikarp is the best. Can your Magikarp rise to the level of League Champion?”
The idea is to get your Magikarp to hit the heights before it retires on reaching level 20, or gets knocked out (ouch). If that happens, you’ll start over with a new Magikarp, only this one will be a teeny bit stronger than your last. And so on.
There’ll also be cameos from other Pokémon wanting to help out by offering food.
While the game is free-to-play, to speed up training, get more food, “habitat decor”, or catch more Magikarp, there are options for in-app purchases (i.e. spending your real life money).
For all the details, head on over to the Pokemon website.
Did you catch (get it? Catch? Okay, I’m sorry) yesterday’s news that Niantic was cracking down on Pokemon Go cheaters who use third party tracking apps?
