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

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.

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