Ein abwechslungsreiches Spiel zur Freude aller Miner-Fans.
The Video Game Critic (Jul 06, 2002)
Little details add to the fun; for example, when your man falls or takes a hit he'll tumble down the entire structure, and occasionally you'll get lucky and he'll fall right onto the last circle, clearing the screen. It just doesn't get any better than that. Jumpman Junior is one of the few titles that let you to set the game speed (from 1-8) and I recommend setting 3. Another nice feature is the excellent harmonized music - these catchy tunes brought back some serious memories! Jumpman Junior is simply a blast to play, and only a sore thumb could pull me away from this.
Jumpman Junior is a fast paced platformer that has some interesting maze elements and strategy that becomes more apparent as you play more. It has good replay value and the controls are really good. We have to say this is an excellent game-night game with plenty of manic action to generate attention and rowdy cheers!
In terms of visual and audio aesthetics, Jumpman Junior is decidedly ordinary when compared to certain other ColecoVision games of its type, such as Donkey Kong and even Space Panic. However, its 12 levels of challenging and varied play will keep hardcore gamers happy. If you enjoy Miner 2049er, chances are you'll have a good time with Jumpman Junior.
