About the Game

Colonial England. Under a certain amount of duress... Jack takes on a job, which will not only cause him a great deal of trouble, but also bring to light the answer to a mystery out of his distant past. A lack of money leads Jack to accept a charter to take a British secret agent to mysterious 'Tooth Island'. When Jack's ship shatters on the mysterious island's cliffs on arrival and the secret agent quickly becomes a meal for a monster in the jungle, Jack is soon left to cope with the situation on his own.
Tooth Island is ruled by the strange Doctor T, who is cultivating man-eating plants and has his own dastardly plans for the British Empire. And why does he seem to know Jack, who can't remember ever having been on Tooth Island? What are Doctor T's plans? And what does he know about Jack's past?
And then there's the young and naive Amanda, who is filled by an almost fanatical drive to prove her worth. In the beginning the young lady is employed by Doctor T, and part of her task is to track Jack down and take him prisoner. It doesn't take long before she begins to wonder if she is really on the right side, or if she shouldn't join her opponent, the charming Captain Jack, instead.
A hair-raising hunt across the length and breadth of the dangerous island finally airs the mystery surrounding Jack's past and leads to a spectacular showdown with a dark and deadly enemy and his nefarious henchmen.

This is tough for me to give this game a review. I enjoy it and look past it's obvious dated features such as the cheesy voiceovers, childish and slightly slow animations, however in a weird way it is quite charming. For a younger audience, such as your kids, this is a good title to play with them.

I spent a lot of time playing this game. I initially purchased it because it was on sale and I had a lot of free time. The controls were kind of dodgy and the puzzles were challenging enough ( I remember having to look up a decent amount of them). The humor reminded me somewhat of a knock off of Monkey Island. It has some replayability for some hidden items, but once you found them there's no real reason as the story is kind of unoriginal for If you're a fan of classic Point and Click adventures I would give it a try, but wait until it is on sale.

Disappointing.

That pretty much sums up my reaction to Jack Keane. Jack Keane has decent graphics, controls reasonably well, and even made me chuckle once or twice. Why do I not recommend it then?

The puzzles are badly designed and I can not count the amount of times I found myself saying, "What am I supposed to do?" No, not wondering how to solve a puzzle. I found myself wondering what I should even be trying to solve. The problem is that the game does not clearly establish what the puzzles are. Jack rarely offers even the remotest clue about what he thinks of a puzzle and it is extremely easy to miss a key item just because you ran past it.

I adore adventure games and love great puzzles, but this game was a misfire. I might even try the sequel just to see if they fixed the problems, but this one misses more than it hits and can not get recommendation from me.

I'd give it a 4/10.

Jack Keane is the most enjoyable point-and-click adventure I've played in a long time. It will appeal to almost every adventure fan, as the puzzles gradually get harder, while the game successfully reproduces the vibrant, humorous and slick atmosphere and antics of beloved classics of this proud genre, like Sam & Max and Monkey Island.
