Doodle God gets an unheavenly makeover today, with the launch of Doodle Devil: 3volution. First released on mobile and PC back in 2017, it’s been remastered for console with a spruce to the graphics, console-friendly controls, and some extra minigames – and it’s out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
Describing a Doodle Game is a bit odd, as it’s definitely something you need to experience to fully comprehend. You are initially given a few elements to use on one another, as if you were a mad scientist, testing chemicals for reactions. These elements are real-world things – like fire, water, seeds, life, humans – and combining them has reactions that reflect real life. Want to make steam? That requires a mix of fire and water. Want to make a politician? You’ll need to mix a human with greed.

Doodle God was the one that kicked the series off, but Doodle Devil is the one that takes it to mischievous places. Categories of things include supernatural creatures, beasts and sins, which you wouldn’t find in a conventional Doodle title. Then there are the demons, which include such well-known creatures as Cthulhu, Medusa and Baal. Doodle Devil: 3volution also has a streak of cheekiness, as you can combine things in rude ways to test what may happen.
On top of the litany of combinations, there are a couple of minigames to take advantage of. Demon Mode allows you to use the demons that you’ve gained from the main game and pit them against other demons in a kind of pseudo-Pokemon battle. Then there are the Demon Slots, where you can gamble cash from the main game to potentially earn even more cash. That cash can be spent on power-ups and unlocks that do such fantastic things as showing elements with viable matches.
We have already given Doodle Devil: 3volution on Xbox a review and found it to be more of the same Doodle goodness, if a little hastily ported from its mobile origins (including a lot of the currencies and energies left in). Still, if you have enjoyed Doodle games in the past, we’d heartily recommend you play this one.
