Ein abwechslungsreiches Spiel zur Freude aller Miner-Fans.

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.

The game is certainly fun to play but if you had to pick between the two I'd go with the original for its extra levels, gradual difficulty ramping, and cleaner gameplay. Jumpman Junior may boil down to "more of the same", but like beer and Rush, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

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.

Les jeux d'escalade tiennent le haut du pavé. Les 30 tableaux de Jumpman nous avaient enchantés. Pour ceux qui n'ont pas d'unité de disquette voici une séquelle en 12 tableaux. Pas autant de stratégie que dans Lode runner, mais plus riche que Miner 2049.
