Day 23 – Pokémon Magikarp Jump

What is this world coming to?! It’s a Pokémon game all about the weakest Pokémon ever—Magikarp! Anyone can play this simple game in their spare time to create the most majestic Magikarp ever in this official Pokémon app; Pokémon Magikarp Jump!

Pokémon Magikarp Jump


Pokémon Magikarp Jump is the latest release from the Pokémon brand. I am a massive Pokémon fan, and love the original 150 Pokémon, so it was quite funny to see a game that’s centred around the weakest of Pokémon; Magikarp. The game itself is as polished as you would expect. Everything works as it should and overall the usability is near perfect. I currently have a little pond where I am growing my Magikarp’s. I need to keep feeding them and training them so they earn JP (Jump) points. 

That’s the positive. The negative is I don’t really understand where all of this is going. I mean, I feed my Magikarp, I train my Magikarp and I challenge other people. So far, I am doing quite well (if I do say so) and keep winning the challenges by jumping the highest. But the challenge is just a single press of a button. To me, the game seems to have no story, meaning or reason. Other than to collect Magikarp. Which I guess would appeal to a lot of people, however I am not sure that includes me.
