Incredible Jack aspires to be a hand held action adventure game like Super Mario Bros. It ultimately falls a little shy of the mark. Incredible Jack does some really wonderful things along the way though. The storyline sticks out as one of the best in all of gaming on the hand helds.
In Mario games we are on a quest to save a kidnapped princess - which is all well and good. Incredible Jack takes us on a quest to save our kidnapped children, and wife. Demons have taken them because family turned these woodland creatures away from greed and towards helping one another. The demons want that stopped, and hope kidnapping the family will turn them back towards greed.
The characters and character models in Incredible Jack looks okay. The variety of colors used are generally bright and colorful. The animation is stiff though. This sticks out while playing the lengthy levels. The collision detection is also confusing. At times my character took hits, and other times he did not.
Incredible Jack lets players push boulders, boxes, barrels, and even enemies. In fact once the player starts pushing, they just keep adding on until it hits a wall, or falls off a ledge. Not very realistic, but an interesting game play feature to this iPhone/iPod Touch hand held video game.
The on screen controls are move left, move right, and jump. If you
have been a member of the Family Friendly Gaming Nation for some time,
then you will know how we feel about on screen touch controllers. They
are a pain, and mask a portion of the screen. Incredible Jack could work
so much better on the 3DS and PS Vita. Especially if some additional
animations are added.
