> THE HOUSE JACK BUILT by Thor

And so we come to the final game in this trilogy of Jack games by Thor (Jack & the Beanstalk, Giant's Revenge). I loved playing the original game back in the day and never knew, until now, that there were three games in the set. All good fun to play, but very difficult in places. Brendan has done us proud by playing through all three games and revealing the endings...


The End!!

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:

  • Brendan: Cheat, cheat, cheat, cheat!
  • Vinny: I created a crazy hack for this game that has 21 extra in-game features; one of them being the game ending. You can download the crazy hack from the link area above.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The game ending kicks in with a specific ending tune and the message: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COLLECTED ALL YOUR TREASURES AND EVADED MOST OF THE FAMILY PETS AND MADE YOUR OWN WAY ROUND YOUR OWN HOME. YOUR TIME WAS ###### SECONDS."

COMMENTS:

  • Brendan: Here is the ending for The House That Jack Built - think this was the final in the trilogy and it has the worst ending. Plain congratulations screen and an ok tune - 3/10.
  • Vinny: I'm guessing there's no animation sequence like the other two, which is disappointing. It appears that the endings got worst the more games they produced. Also - the programming team seemed to change too.

    Anyway - a boring ending that is mildly interesting due to the tune. 2/10.
  • Gaz Spence: The endings to the trilogy get progressively worse. At least the ending ditty is ok.
  • Andy Vaisey: Not even the presence of some music can save this paltry ending.

FINAL SAY: A sad ending to the trilogy :(

G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
