Joe & Mac 2





Joe & Mac 2 


I am very thankful I had the money to purchase the Data East Collection 1. One of the games on that cartridge that plays on the Evercade systems is Joe & Mac 2. I am a bit perplexed why we did not get the first Joe & Mac video game. We are a cave man in Joe & Mac 2. The great crown of your village has been stolen by Gork. This bad cave man must be stopped. The player must go and retrieve the crown from this horrible, vile and wicked thief.

Graphically Joe & Mac 2 looks decent for a 16-bit video game. I enjoyed some of the stages that went up and down. Climbing is fun in Joe & Mac 2 as well. We get some nice visual treats like walking in a river. Joe & Mac 2 is a 2D side scrolling action adventure platformer. Expect to be challenged in Joe & Mac 2. I noticed the difficulty can be a pain at times. I learned to expect enemy attacks from all angles in Joe & Mac 2. Just because you cleared out an area does not mean they will come at you from behind once you pass it.

I did have some frustrating with the jumping within Joe & Mac 2. Trying to get on the back of that giant snake was a major pain. Especially when it went in and out of holes on the screen. I finally figured out the timing to get to the next platform. We have a video of my game play of Joe & Mac 2 on the Family Friendly Gaming website within the videos section. You can check it out there.

There is violent content within Joe & Mac 2. We use a variety of weapons to dispose of the animals and fellow humans that get in our way. They will come at you from behind as well. This made levels take longer than they needed to in my personal and professional opinion. The cave people do not wear a lot of clothing in Joe & Mac 2. If lack of attire bothers you then know you will find it within Joe & Mac 2.

Joe & Mac 2 is a challenging 2D side scrolling platformer that games can enjoy from the 16-bit era. I found myself a bit exasperated with how many enemies show up within Joe & Mac 2. I learned to take it slow while playing Joe & Mac 2. I also learned that stealing is wrong and bad. You do not have a right to anyone else’s property. The dialogue in Joe & Mac 2 is a bit campy but you might find that funny.
