Doodle Lab 101 Review

I'd imagine I'm not the only person getting more than a little tired of developers sticking the word doodle in their games' titles in a transparent attempt at cozying up to the chart-topping hit Doodle Jump. So I guess I'd better start this review by saying FunTribe's Doodle Lab 101 isn't just another game jumping on that particular buzzword-bandwagon.

This eagerly anticipated sequel transplants the illicit action to the sun-kissed streets and swamps of Miami, throws plenty of shiny new toys into the sandbox, and drafts in one the key writers of HBO's The Wire to up the script's grittiness, but has it lost its edge?...
