Tilt (Jul, 1985)
Un très beau jeu d'aventure graphique, de type Pitfall amélioré, doté d'un graphisme de bon niveau et d'une animation de qualité.
Crash! (Nov, 1984)
Jasper has the makings of a hit game — tremendous graphics, well calculated problems to overcome and a marvellous hero in Jasper himself. There are quite a few keys used to control the game, so familiarity with the layout is important, since some decisions have to be made in a great hurry. Fortunately one key can do several things like Y to P will make Jasper climb up a rope, release it if he’s swinging or just simply jump if he’s on the ground or a platform. This is not an easy game, each screen is likely to kill you off at a moment’s notice, but should you get through it safely there is a real time clock displayed, and the long term objectives are obviously to improve not only the score but also the time taken overall. On the subject of timing, there is also a time limit in which to get off a screen, which makes things even meaner. Very much a game of timing skill, Jasper is marvellous, and infuriatingly addictive.
Personal Computer Games (Jan, 1985)
Jasper seemed to me more like a kangaroo than a mouse Whatever he is doesn't make much difference to the quality of the game, which is pretty high. It's also pretty difficult and I have to confess I didn't get too far, despite the rather long time I played. As arcade-adventures go, it's not one of the biggest, but it's certainly one of the more entertaining.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Dec, 1986)
Jasper ist ein Programm mit guter Grafik und für Spectrum-Verhältnisse ausgezeichneter Animation. Aufgrund seines komplexen Spielgeschehens und der vielen Überraschungsmomente wird das Programm sicher für lange Zeit interessant bleiben. In Anbetracht des überaus günstigen Preises sollte man eigentlich nicht zögern, seine Sammlung um dieses hübsche Spiel zu bereichern!
Sinclair User (Feb, 1985)
The game is not compatible with joysticks, or at least does not proclaim their use on the cassette insert. Once loaded the computer launches into a demo mode and no joysticks show up there either. Jasper may only require a few control keys to play but it is an obvious candidate for joysticks and it is amazing that they are not included.
Your Spectrum (Feb, 1985)
Another 'jumping/platform' game where you utilise various objects to aid your progress. Jasper's ability to crawl, use ropes and perform extra long jumps adds to the thrill, but not enough to keep me interested.
