An especially challenging platformer, Jetpack Jungle Jones tests users’ hand/eye coordination, reflexes, and split-second decision-making. Unlike other games of this genre, it has only one thumb control, which fires his weapon, and players can tap once to shoot once, but must tap repeatedly to achieve rapid fire. Touching any part of the screen activates his jetpack (flames are visible), and touching and holding keeps the jetpack’s thrusters firing. Without any power-ups, Jungle Jones can only fly for two or three seconds at a time, and returning to earth recharges the jetpack for another burst. The fuel can power-up, allowing extended flying times, appears in the game as a floating object, which Jones grabs to activate.
The limited time of each flight adds to the game’s difficulty, as players must correctly judge if they have enough fuel to reach a high platform or cross a wide river. Jones runs automatically except when he fires his weapon. In addition to points and bullets, players can collect gold coins and jewels, which can be redeemed for power-ups, including:
* Magnet – gold coins will stick to Jones
* Bumper – Jones will be able to jump higher
* Jetpack Fuel – Jones will be able to fly for a while
* Magic Hat – run through obstacles with no harm
* Laser Gun – get rid of enemies with a powerful laser gun
“Jetpack Jungle Jones is a fast-paced game, requiring players to jump onto platforms to avoid enemies,” said Kelley Hyatt of App Diner. “The main character is an Indiana Jones-type figure, but added to his repertoire is access to a jetpack. Players run, fly, and jump as they navigate through the jungle, and they can shoot to avoid lethal enemies.”
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
