ZX SpectrumCrash! (Sep, 1991)
After the trials of the original game, little Columbus Jumbo Elephant took a holiday in the States. But while he was out of his native Africa, the dastardly villain of the first game, known only as the Hunter, sneaked into CJ's patch and kidnapped his brothers and sisters! Coo. So, with a trunk full of peanuts and his trusty brolly tucked under his arm (for any nasty long drops), CJ goes off the rescue. Like the first game, it's a multi-level affair with plenty of platforms for pachydermic perambulations and it can cope with two players simultaneously.

[...] CJ in the USA is a great little game. Again, no rewards for originality, but it plays excellently and looks great.

There are of course, more platform games that you can shake a rolled up fiver at, but CJ is certainly one of the better ones. It's been designed well, and you can always see a way through, even if you haven't quite got the knack of doing the running and jumping properly yet.

The game is cute, nicely drawn and fun for those who like cute, nicely drawn things.
AmigaAmiga Action (Oct, 1992)
Bounding around a platform environment, you'll soon notice that everything plays well with the controls being easy to master, and you'll be enjoying yourself in no time at all. The action starts as it means to go on with the first level being particularly tricky, and life just gets more and more difficult from there on. Phew!
AmigaAmiga Power (Oct, 1992)
Dull, uneventful, annoying, badly-designed rubbish. The worst Codies game I've seen in a very very long time, and even a cute elephant character can't save it. Ugh.
