JackQuest: The Tale of the Sword is an addictive combination of Mario’s platforming design with the exploration and sword-slashing of a metroidvania. It’s a ton of fun that’s quick and easy to pick up and play in shorts bursts – which have a habit of becoming longer play sessions. Where does the time go? Platformer fans should consider picking this one up.
JackQuest: The Tale of the Sword is a mediocre effort in the 2D platformer genre. While this review was mostly critical, I should clarify that the game isn’t bad – it just isn’t good either. In a world where we have our pick of the Metroidvania lot, JackQuest simply does nothing to stand out in the crowd. As a result, we’re left with something entirely basic in both design and function.
JackQuest: The Tale of the Sword is an incredibly lackluster experience, with little to no imagination. The game is difficult, but often in a frustrating way. You don’t feel good about beating a boss or finishing a difficult platforming challenge, just relieved that you won’t have to do it again. Metroidvania games are not easy to make; they take a lot of planning and mapping out, and JackQuest just appears to be thrown together without any love or care put into it.
