Overall, Mighty Bomb Jack makes up for lackluster graphics and sound by implementing creative mechanics into a very challenging action adventure.

But is the game any good ? Well, it can be quite fun to control Jack and to master his unique jumping abilities, and the "secret" aspect of the game is quite innovative and adds a lot of replay value. However, this is where the wheels beging to come off, and Mighty Bomb Jack becomes quickly repetitive and monotonous, and most of the game's features and enemies are introduced in the first couple of levels. In truth, you just end up jumping around for hours (if you are patient enough), and because the rooms all look alike, it is fairly hard to orient yourself... all in all Mighty Bomb Jack is a decent (yet somehow furstrating) platform game which doesn't live up to its full potential.
