Review of 'Jack the Nipper'

Rating:5 User: p13z

A classic comic style action adventure game from 1986.
The graphics for the game are perfect. Clear, comical, smooth and well animated. The audio is also clear and comical. This arcade adventure also holds some platform game style challenges, cleverly and seamlessly working over the perspective 3d style comic backgrounds. The game graphics are mostly monochrome. Variation of colours for each screen, and the occasional splash of colour, strategically placed to avoid colour clash, prevent it from looking dull.
Some of the puzzles and consequences in the game are hilarious. Everything about this game has real charm. The exploring, puzzles, and arcade elements all work together to make a game that can keep you smiling.
