Lets start with a poem.
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water then they said screw it ordered a case of water on Amazon, pulled out their phones to check what Chachi reviewed this week! – Chachi Says
Welcome to this weeks Mobile Monday review, this week’s game is Jack N’ Jill! This game was recommended to friend of the site and the Sorgatronmedia network, our friend in the mainstream media, Matt C.
Game: Jack N’ Jill
Platforms: iOS and Android
Jack N’Jill is a simple black and white retro style plat former by The_R. Jack is separated from Jill and has to run and jump his way through each level to be reunited with her. The black and white with chip tune music makes the 120 levels over 6 backgrounds an adventure to be had.
The object of the game is to help Jack reach Jill by jumping over holes, avoiding baddies and painful deadly spikes. Reaching the end until you get to Jill and move on to the next level. There is help along the way by means of wall jumping, speed shoes and potions that kill baddies.
The game play in this game is simple and to the point. Just touch the screen to jump and time the jump correctly and make it to the end. There are some levels that you can wander a bit from the main path for a few more points but that’s pretty much it. Normally, you’d be worried about the repetition and the game getting boring but with the levels as short as they are and it being a mobile game this isn’t a concern. Play a level, walk away come back play another. Short and sweet.
This retro platformer-esqe game sticks to the retro point. Simple monochrome graphics backed with a chip tune theme make this game great for what it is. A simple take you back to the old days platformer.
Probably one of the best games to be recommended for me on the Mobile platform. There are ads in the game in the form of a little bar at the top that you can pay and get rid of but it doesn’t really bother game play. I’ve spent more time trying to find some reason not to give this game a perfect score and found myself coming up with bs reasons. For all intents and purposes this game is a great mobile game. The perfect pick for a go to game to pass a few moments while you wait in line. You should play this game.
