You know the nursery rhyme; “Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, And Jill came tumbling after”. Well, imagine a game with those two characters (represented by blobs) but with that same friend devotion. Developer, The_R, has created a game with the name Jack N’ Jill which is out now on Google Play that has you playing Jack as he finds his way to Jill and hopefully doesn’t fall down and break his crown.
Jack N’ Jill is a simple one button platformer perfectly suited for touch screen devices. Jack is always running so it is your job to press the screen to jump over various obstacles, wall jump, etc. There are 60 levels spanning three different landscapes in Jack N’ Jill and all have a nice black and white panchromatic retro Gameboy feel to them. In fact, The_R mentions that Jack N’ Jill’s inspiration is classic games like Super Mario Land and Kirby’s Dreamland. Jack N’ Jill looks simple but fun and appealing to classic gamers.
