A fantastic game when it first appeared a couple of years ago, and still damn good now. There's never been a better excuse to waste three quid.

Cartoon graphics and masses of brain teasers, all very nicely done. This'll sort out who are the wimps.

Jack the Nipper ist ein Spiel für alle Leute, die Spaß verstehen. Bestellen Sie es noch heute, Sie werden es sicher nicht bereuen! Hier ist Gremlin Graphics wieder 'mal ein Hit gelungen. Endlich hat man gute Grafik, guten Sound, eine originelle Spielidee und eine sehr hohe Spielmotivation unter einen Hut, bzw. in ein Spiel, gebracht. Weiter so!

How could this game possibly fail to be a hit? It's just so appealling in both presentation and playability. The graphics are masterful, involving a previously ignored monochrome cartoon style that makes Jack look as though he's just leapt out of the Beano. Gremlin have definitely come up with a winner in Jack the Nipper: gameplaywise things are fairly similar to many arcade adventures though the tasks to be performed really are quite funny. While the puzzles are not immediately obvious they aren't overly hard either. The graphic style perks up the game no end. Overall an excellent game that well worth the price - run out and have a look at it today.

You play a toddler named Jack, and the aim is to cause as much havoc as possible! Starting out in your bedroom, you must roam the town, creating chaos whenever you can. And the more trouble you cause, the higher your naughtyometer goes, the aim being to get it as full as possible. But beware, because all the grown-ups are there to give you a good spanking. A truly great and original game; the graphics are wonderful and detailed, the music and sound effects are good and catchy, and the challenge is just right - Jack has many lives as well as a sizeable energy bar, so games last a good while. A true classic, and better than its sequel.

The way the game has been put together is excellent, with your nappy-rash counter going up whenever you touch a goody-goody, and one of the little Jacks at the bottom of the screen being spanked when the rash is on full. Jack the Nipper is a fantastic game, and even on rerelease deserves a Smash! rating.

So what's this nipper got that other games lack, hmm? Well, for starters the game contains surprisingly bright and loud sound effects of genuine arcade quality. The graphics virtually leap off the screen at you, and have that comic book look. Jack the Nipper will be a confident hit I'm sure, bearing, as it does, all the hallmarks of a lasting favourite. Heh heh heh.

There's great fun to be had as you run around creating havoc, although the game structure isn't perhaps as tight as in the sequel. Graphics are impressive, with a neat sense of perspective, and the whole is fast and furious. Overall, a bargain at three nicker, sow what are you doing sitting there? Go buy it.

The game is very similar in appearance and play to Gremlin's great store detective game Grumphey Supersleuth and is just as original and enjoyable to play. A great game in which you can be as naughty as you always wanted to be but it certainly isn't childsplay.

Frage an den Spiele-Redakteur: Was ist das Schlimme an Action-Adventures? Antwort: Es gibt zu viele davon! Die Softwarehäuser haben sich in den letzten Monaten gegenseitig mit Spielen überboten, in denen irgendwelche Männchen irgendwo herumlaufen, wo man ominöse Gegenstände einsammeln und wieder irgendwo einsetzen muß. Doch wenn so ein Spielchen wirklich originell ist und zudem noch eine wunderschöne Grafik bietet, dann macht die Sache einen Heidenspaß.

The CPC Jack II's very well drawn, but the use of four colours rather than sixteen lets it down a bit graphically. Good sound is the only difference from the Spectrum version.

Graphically it's a treat, colour clashes to one side, and the game's little musical jokes - a bit of a Stingray theme tune if you fall in the water, or a snatch of Agadoo when you pick up the pineapple - give it audio appeal too. If it's a dinosaur in gameplay terms it's a slick and very well-presented dinosaur; but you'd be hard put to call it an advance on the original.

Although the game was well received on the Spectrum, I felt that it lacked a certain addictive quality. The screens look good, the sound is fine but solving the puzzles of what to do with key objects held little excitement for me.

The nappy-clad Jack makes for an amusing multi-level challenge. Puzzles of medium difficulty level and lot's of laughs.
