SummaryWhip it out
The GoodIt is fun to control Dr Jones, famous treasure hunter, through action and puzzle-themed levels. The game gives you some freedom in the order you complete the levels, and the intermission sequences are well done.
The BadThe game is hard, and oftentimes the level of difficulty stems from poor game play mechanics.
The trademark whip only works when you hit an enemy in the precise place. This was often a problem with video game whips, but it makes for some problems if you are not exact in you whip attacks.
The puzzles are a nice change of pace from the standard platforming. On the downside the random/puzzle elements can get too annoying. Trying to figure out which cup - for example - is the right one, does requires looking at hard-to-see differences among similar looking 8bit cups.
