The action is non-stop and the control is dead-on. Jawbreaker takes an old theme and manages to make it exciting again. Highly recommended!

JAWBREAKER ist bestimmt nicht als Alternative zu „Pac-Man“ konzipiert worden. Das Spiel wird auch ‚Pac-Man“-Fans, von denen es ja mittlerweile sehr viele gibt, fesseln.

The Atari Times
For those that were disgruntled by the so-called 2600 “port” of Pac-Man, this would be a refreshing change, but then, it’s not exactly Pac-Man though. It’s addicting and fast-paced, so fast that you might have trouble just getting to the second screen at times. Unfortunately all the smiley faces do is move faster and faster, and that’s pretty much the whole game there, but then, what else can you expect for less than 4K for an entire cartridge?

Jawbreaker is one of the better Pac-Man clones for the Atari 2600 -- you'll want it to play, not just to stick on a shelf and use as a museum piece. (Although, that bright red housing does look nice amongst all the black plastic.)

Une variante du Pac-Man assez originale, amusante au début, mais dépourvue de tout aspect stratégique. Ici, seuls vos réflexes comptent.
