> JUMPMAN JUNIOR by Epyx


Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

This is one of the first ever cracked Commodore 64 games that I owned; it was given to me by one of my school mates. I used to spend hours playing it because I loved the game play and simplicity of it all. At no point did I ever think that it would have a game ending (much like what I thought about the original Jumpman game)...


Jumpman completes the final destination.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I ... erm ... used a level-skip cheat (come on! it's me you're talking to!)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once Jumpman Jr has completed the final screen and is given a BIG scoring bonus, the screen changes to show Jumpman Jr standing within the letter 'O' of the words 'WELL DONE'. The words are flashing all different colours whilst Jumpman Junior starts to perform a silly jig. This is accompanied by a short ending ditty.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: This was a cracking game in its day: such simplicity. Unfortunately, the simplicity carries through to the game ending and doesn't attempt to over-perform. If you compare it to the original Jumpman game ending, it's a step down, when in fact I would have been expecting an improvement.

  • Kungfufurby: Pretty fancy Well Done if you ask me, but that's it... nothing else. Plus, I think the ending tune is taken from the original Jumpman.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Never played the Jumpman games in my C64 days - even more shockingly, I still have not played any of them in these days of emulators!

    Ending is pretty pants, but better than nothing.

  • Andy Vaisey: Simple graphics, simple gameplay, simple ending. 1/10.

  • Andrew Fisher: I'd never played Jumpman or its sequel in the 80s either.

    Very simple ending.

FINAL SAY: Very short and very simple.

G.E. RATING: 3.5 / 10
