Cheat supplied by Inge H. Pedersen

This cute little game from Gremlin Graphics always
seemed to get the better of me: no matter how hard I
tried I just couldn't progress through the game! Saying
that, it was still fun to play and is still worth a play
20 years on.
Anyway, thanks to Inge
Pedersen for sending in a cheat which allowed us to
obtain the ending ...
The little terror has
completed his quest. The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?
Inge Pedersen was kind enough to send in this COOL
cheat that made the game jump straight to the end
sequence! It can be done using a cartridge that allows
you to enter the MONITOR or with an emulator with the
same function. Here's what you need to do:
from a C64 cheating background, this really hits the
spot for me and I think it's quite amazing that this one
single change will make the game go to the end sequence!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?
Our intrepid hero runs onto a street scene that shows a
load of posters reading: jumbo nuts, burp beans, plonk
and pest kill. Jack stops in the middle of the screen
and wolf-whistles - that's what I think he's doing! The
naughtyness metre shows: 100% and the ending message
says, "CONGRATULATIONS! LITTLE HORROR". Jack then
runs off the screen and the game is over.
It's a cute little ending: nothing too dazzling but
colourful and humorous. It does the job by
completing the game, but it could have done with a
little more of an explanation to the ending.

As much as Jack is cute, naughty and generally all
round fun, there isn't much to keep you going after
a while of intensive playing, and it won't be long
before you've completed the game.
It's a good game, but it could have been a great
game if they'd got rid of some of the annoying
problems (like dropping an object and breaking it
when you didn't mean to) and made it slightly easier
to control. I've never completed it, and that is a
short but sweet ending. 4/10.
Always liked the Jack sprite in this game, actually
think the 2nd one is a better game though.
Although the poor endings in both rank the same.
FINAL SAY: Check
it out (",)
