Jack N' Jill DX 

 

Ratalaika Games gave Family Friendly Gaming digital codes for Jack N' Jill DX on the PS4, PS Vita, and Nintendo Switch. This downloadable only video game can be found on the PC and Xbox One as well. We used the Nintendo Switch code. After I played Jack N' Jill DX, our EIC decided he wanted to start doing a video series on Jack N' Jill DX. Look for that coming soon.

Jack N' Jill DX looks like a Gameboy video game. That means there are only two colors in this game. The throwback look and feel to Jack N' Jill DX can be embraced or shocking. It all depends on your view. I was able to adapt to it while playing the twenty levels in each of the seven worlds. Jack N' Jill DX gets progressively more difficult as we traverse through the levels.

The music in Jack N' Jill DX is fun. I liked listening to it while trying to get through each of the levels. Some levels in Jack N' Jill DX are easy to beat and others are much more complex. At times the controls in Jack N' Jill DX seemed to lose cohesion. Jumps would not register and the little blob character would fall to his doom. He did not find Jill in those instances.

The controls in Jack N' Jill DX are very simplistic. We press the 'A' button to start running to the right. We then press 'A' again to jump. If we run into a wall then we will change directions. At the start of the second world we learn how to wall jump. There are coins to collect in Jack N' Jill DX. There are enemies that can be squashed as well. We can land on spikes and die. That is the level of violent content found within Jack N' Jill DX.

How did the ESRB miss that in their rating review of Jack N' Jill DX? The violent content in Jack N' Jill DX is definitely light. It is still present and should be reported upon. Here is another instance where the ESRB has failed families. This is becoming way too common place in the video game industry. Jack N' Jill DX is a 60m meg download that feels a lot like an app (which is where it came from).
