Jumping Jack The player controls Jack, a superhero who can leap and glide. Someone has planted 24 bombs at famous tourist sites around the world. Jack must fly around the screen to collect the bombs.
Each screen uses a different configuration of platforms upon which Jack may run and jump. Jack “defuses” the bombs by simply touching them. As soon as he has touched the first, he triggers a sequence in which another bomb’s fuse lights up, and so on. A player can score a bonus in each round by touching 20 or more bombs in the correct lit-fuse sequence. Jack may also defuse an unlit bomb by touching it, but this impedes his opportunity to score the bonus for that screen. It also delays the appearance of the game’s bonuses and power-ups. The lit fuses have no strategic purpose other than the bonus; a lit bomb left unattended does not explode.
• The same, good old gameplay you remember!
• Travel around the world defusing bombs
• Catch bonus and powerups to increase your score
