Popular iOS title Doodle Jump (pictured above) is headed to Xbox Live Arcade, which is good news for fans of simple, easy-to-play platformers. It's bad news, however, for people who don't enjoy moving around.

Developer Lima Sky has confirmed that the XBLA version of the game will utilize Kinect in someway, shape, or form. How that will work isn't clear. Doodle Jump involves a lot of jumping, and the idea of having to do all of that hopping in my living room is already making my knees buckle. One has to hope that Lima has something less exhaustive in mind.

Doodle Jump fans, is this the Kinect killer app you've been waiting for?
