Magikarp might be a pretty useless Pokémon, but it's now the star of its own, delightfully weird game: Magikarp Jump.
Far simpler than last year's Pokémon Go, Magikarp Jump is a clicker style game where you feed and train a Magikarp to make it strong enough to beat other Magikarp in jumping contests. Seriously.
Once you max out a Magikarp's potential, you'll start again with a fresh, stronger fish. As with other clicker games, there's an upgrade-based progression system to help you train up each new fish faster and faster.
It's not really a game in the traditional sense, but Magikarp Jump is still satisfying enough to be a fun little time killer.
Magikarp Jump is free-to-play, with in app purchases that can be used to speed up your progression and remove the wait time on certain events.
