Pokemon: Magikarp Jump is now available

Might as well jump, jump!

It was only a matter of time. After a quiet launch in Italy, then a larger one in Japan, Pokémon: Magikarp Jump is now available for download in the US.

Pokémon: Magikarp Jump is a free-to-play game that tasks players with raising the titular fish, training it to jump as high as it possibly can. It features all the mechanics we know and love about mobile games, including in-app purchases, always online connectivity and a progression model that retires your fish once it hits level 20. Snark aside, it looks like a cute addition to my phone that I’ll have no trouble playing without spending any money.

If you want to give it a go like I will be this week, you can download it here for iOS or here for Android.
