DescriptionRolling Jack is a Boulder Dash clone. On each level, the protagonist (a smiling, red ball), who can move freely in 4 directions, must collect all the coins and then go into the exit.
There are numerous dangers in the levels: rocks which fall when there is free space beneath them, and which can kill our hero by falling on him, or block his progress and make him unable to complete the level; flying screws and chattering teeth, which fly along walls and kill the hero if they collide with him (the chattering teeth must be killed, e.g. by dropping rocks on them, as each such a monster contains 9 necessary coins); grenades that explode when they fall or when something falls on them; rotating spheres that push the hero in a particular direction; one-way passages; and pushable blocks that must be pushed intelligently.
The hero can find bombs that he can set up at any point; they then explode after a while, destroying any neighboring objects (apart from certain, indestructible walls).
The game features a level editor which allows for the creation of up to 120 custom levels.

TriviaThe game was sold commercially back in 1994/1995. Later on, sometime in 2000 or earlier, the game was made available as a freeware download on the producer's old website, www.ajt.zone.pl (URL now defunct). Translation of the readme.doc file distributed with the game follows:
The program was being sold a couple of years ago and enjoyed quite a big success. Currently it is available as freeware without any technical support from the producer and without any guarantee it will work on every machine. There used to be two versions of the program - Polish and English. Today some files are lost, and a Polish-English mix was successfully pieced together from the remaining files.
