With a plot that could have been written by Tight Fit, Jack finds himself stranded in the jungle with the back of his father's hand in hot pursuit. So what's he going to try to do. Escape? Nope, he's going to be as naughty as possible. There are certainly plenty of natives to pester, and the birds and animals look a bit vulnerable too. There are also lots of vines to swing on, coconuts to throw around, rivers to jump across and, um, trains to catch. The graphics, as in the original Jack, are excellent and with more colour this time. Sound effects haven't been forgotten, either, as there are also lots of beepy tunes and things. It's so exciting, it really is. At barg level this one really can't be ignored, so buy, buy, er, buy.

Hmm. They don't make Speccy games like this any more (more's the pity).
