Jumpin' Jackson is a top-down puzzle game. Jackson hops around a game board, picking up records (anyone remember vinyl?) and putting them down on record players. Each record carries one instrument's part of a tune, and as the records are put down, the tune builds up. Once all the records are spinning, the tune and level are completed.

Blocking your way are a variety of violent musical instruments - violins, trumpets, bass drums.

The title of the game and its title screen music is, of course, a slightly modified version of no other than the song Jumpin' Jack Flash by The Rolling Stones.
