"I'm not sure whether to actually recommend this, but it's just bizarre enough of a first person puzzle and narrative game to give a shot. Wacky, yes."

Este es otro de esos "simuladores de paseo" aunque tiene unos pequeños puzzles y minijuegos para ir avanzando, pero vamos, nada que suponga un reto y se basa más que nada en explorar el escenario. En este caso, desde un punto de vista humoristico lleno de referencias y chistes de humor absurdo en forma de gags. Algunos te ries, en otros no. Yo particularmente me he reido con los más chorras y con algunas referencias a peliculas (Demolition Man, Blade Runner, Terminator, James Bonds varios...). A mi con el humor me suelen ganar y por eso lo recomiendo.
Es muy corto, en torno a 2-3 horas puedes explorar todo de arriba a abajo.
La música, de lo mejorcito, tipo jazz.

Ahora, que el juego está en inglés (inglés complicado, con acentos, voces distorsionadas y jerga variada) sin subtitulos (aunque suelen poner texto cuando hablas con algún monigote). No sé si habrá por ahí parche para idioma o algo, pero como no domines el inglés, lo llevas crudo.

Jazzpunk ha superado mis expectativas de manera muy positiva. Es un juego ambientado en las historias de espias de los años 50, tiene buenas dosis de humor, buenos gags y mucho mundo por descubrir. Empezé a jugar de manera torpe ya que me centré en la consecución del objetivo principal de cada nivel, pero una vez entendido que el juego te ofrece escenarios abiertos con múltiples posibilidades de exploración y que te posibilitan todo un mundo de juegos dentro del mismo juego, la perspectiva de jugarlo se me hizo muchísimo más atractiva si cabe. La estética visual es atractiva, divertida y el humor siempre está presente y aunque para pasar de capítulo/nivel has de conseguir el objetivo marcado, no obstante aconsejo explorarlo todo ya que cualquier objeto puede llevarte a una aventura secundaria en la que vas a disfrutar tanto como en la consecución de los logros principales. En definitva un buen juego que vale la pena tener en nuestra biblioteca de juegos.

Divertido juego en primera persona donde nada se toma en serio. En "Jazzpunk" serás una especie de agente y te encargarán misiones para, a continuación, soltarte en el lugar donde debes llevar a cabo la misión. Tu deber será buscar la manera de cumplir tu objetivo con las cosas que hay a tu alcance por el escenario, dándole al juego un pequeño toque de "aventura".
Hay que decir que el juego es cortísimo. Tanto, que si vas directamente a cumplir las misiones y pasarte el juego, puedes hacerlo en una hora, pero "Jazzpunk" tiene unos escenarios repletos de elementos interactivos que aportan a la historia lo mismo que Phill Collins en su carrera en solitario al mundo de la música: nada. En cambio, aunque no son relevantes en el juego, son chorradas que nos sacarán una sonrisa. Te recomiendo que pierdas el tiempo en recorrerte los escenarios e interactuar con todo lo que encuentres. De hecho, hay incluso minijuegos. Ésta es la gracia del juego y lo que hará que recuerdes el mundo de "Jazzpunk" como un mundo alocado y sin sentido, donde hasta las cosas "malas" son simpáticas.
También debéis saber que el juego es ultrafácil. De hecho, mi perro Acho está a punto de acabarlo y ha conseguido más logros que yo en menos tiempo, pero eso no quiere decir que no valga la pena. "Jazzpunk" no supone un reto ni nada parecido, es más bien una manera de pasar un rato agradable sabiendo que ni vas a morir ni preocuparte de cuándo salvaste la partida. Sólo debes preocuparte de poner patas arriba el escenario que se te presenta.
La estética me recuerda a "Thirty Flights of Loving", un juego horrible pero insulso que lo único que tenías que hacer era seguir el camino hacia delante y saltar de vez en cuando, sólo que aquí han tenido como resultado un buen juego.
Haceos con él cuando tengáis la oportunidad y dejaos llevar por el absurdo durante un rato.

¿Vale la pena su precio teniendo en cuenta lo corto y fácil que es? La respuesta corta es que NO, y la larga es DEPENDE, y la diferencia son cinco letras.
¿Es rejugable? Sí, porque es posible que acabes el juego a falta de logros, y es divertido ir a por ellos. Además, hay muchas chorradas que no dan logros pero es gracioso encontrarlas cuando la primera vez que pasate por ahí no te diste cuenta y las saltaste.
Tío, Phill Collins no se toca. Exacto. Ni lo toco ni lo escucho.

Jazzpunk is a unique game with a style all its own that feels like a surrealistic 1950s retro spy meets Ren and Stimpy cartoon silliness. You play in a first person perspective, interacting with several things, exploring rich, colorful, living, breathing surrealistic areas. The surrealistic art style blends with the humor really well. The only controls are jump and action buttons with left stick to move, and right stick to look around or keyboard controls to do the same things. You can get items and switch between them. There are plenty of mini games that feel more like diversions to keep you engaged. Its parodies of other games and media, yet it feels distinctly like its own product.

You work for a spy agency that sends you to far away locales with serious objectives, things like infiltrate a USSR building, follow a cowboy in Japan to get his mechanical kidney, infiltrate a criminal's lavish retro penthouse and you'll even be sent on a Polynesian vacation. There are spies, madmen, robots, crazy bums and women around every corner.

The big feature here for me is the interactivity and exploration. You can interact with boxes, newspaper machines, spray pigeon perfume on NPCs to see pigeons carry them away, drink mouthwash only to discover its chlorine, use a master baster on a turkey, freeze a frozen meal in a microwave, scribble lipstick on your face, collect spiders in a jar to throw them at people, break every vase in a shop trying to swat flies. It all feels so interesting and engaging to do what I want to in this crazy world. While NPCs are faceless box people (or robots) with circle heads, NPCs say several things, most of which are hilarious and I don't usually like comedy in games. The eccentric off the wall comedy and parody really hit the mark for me, when most comedy games feel forced.

Jazzpunk parodies several games like Frogger, Wave Race in a fountain of gravy, mini golf with pool cues, virtual tennis, Wedding Quake against a bride, groom and priest, a zombie pizza game, a high score game where you play a cat ripping things to shreds, a game of Twister, finding prizes with a metal detector and so much more. It all kept me playing, even if it all was just easy fun.

It is definitely worth a playthrough, I found myself taking far too many screen shots at the crazy things I'd see. Things in the background, men in cullender hats with wheeled pigs on the background and my radio tooth on the floor. Its never in your face, its all just there for you to find it.

There is no death in the game, even if you plunge off of the fourth floor of your Polynesian hideaway, you still bounce on the ground. With that being said, you can still fail the mini games. Frogger took quite a beating and I lost a lot in Wedding Quake before I realized the rose rocket launcher was win. It is an easy game, again, the point is to explore, interact and laugh.

Is it worth the $15? Maybe and I'm surprised to say that, even if its only 2 or 3 hours to complete. The ending came pretty abruptly and even the credits have their own flare to them. I can imagine its not for everyone and I never thought it would be for me. I am shocked at how much enjoyment I got from Jazzpunk and I might have to play through it again.

If you like games similar to The Stanley Parable, and exploring in video games, you will most likely love this game.
This game is an amazing experience. It's fantastic in every way.

I would gladly buy a sequel.

I recommend purchasing this title on sale, due to the short play-time and limited content.

+ Quirky and over-the-top sound effects
+ Interesting and surreal character models and design choices
+ HIlarious abstract humor; some of it is really quite clever, and I've found myself brought to tears with laughter on several occasions
+ There are myriad extras, minigames, and funny activities scattered around the playable areas
+ Has a sense of charm and humor reminiscient of The Stanley Parable, and should resonate well with fans of the game
+ Littered with clever references
+ Minigames introduce a variety of playstyles and visual effects

- Unforgivably short playtime (1-2 hours), especially for what is otherwise such a unique and underrated title
- Little practical replayability, save for the achievements

Hilarious. So much hidden content, if you just play the main story it'll take about 20 minutes but the real core of the game is in all the easter eggs, side quests, bonuses. Brilliant fun

Jazzpunk is a very fun game, chock-full of references and jokes. The gameplay is very simple however. You just walk around and click on things mostly. The people in-game will give you a lot of cheesy lines and funny comments.

This game is very short and doesn't have that much replayability if you ask me. Only if you wanna go for all the achievement and maybe see some things you missed out on the first time. You can run through the game super fast if you don't explore the levels fully, however you should do that because it's very detailed and fun. I laughed a lot while I played this and I really like the soundtrack too.

You should absolutely play this game at some point, but you might want to pick it up on sale because it's short and doesn't have much replayability, or anything else you can do besides the singleplayer story either.

So I played through this game, got all of the achievements, and I'm still at a loss of what it was all about. Jazzpunk is a cartoon. There are games with cartoony graphics, some that are actually based off of cartoons, but Jazzpunk is straight-up Tex Avery. If you've never heard of the guy, you're missing out. He directed a ton of hilarious shorts back in the mid-20th century that still hold up today. His directorial style resulted in wacky, off-kilter, crass, and sometimes totally ridiculous cartoons.

There is a plot to Jazzpunk, but it's designed solely to set up as many gags as possible. Apparently you're a spy, and your mission is to infiltrate various locations and steal super-important stuff. I can't say much else because, since this is an interactive-adventure game, it'll ruin a lot of the jokes & surprises. I can give you a vague idea of what to expect though. Almost every chapter consists of an area you can explore. There are objects and citizens you can interact with, and there's some very light puzzle-solving as well. Everything is set up as part of the experience, so whatever happens you just roll with it. It's impossible to die and there are no fail-states for your mission, so there's no sense of danger or urgency.

It's important to note that this is a very short game. Anyone should be able to get all of the achievements in less than two hours. There are plenty of secrets and things to try at least, but that's still less than four hours of game-time. If we're speaking strictly in terms of value, you don't have to look hard to find titles with more game for less money. However if you, like I, happened upon this game due to its appearance in a bundle, then I definitely recommend exploring it.

The most brilliantly written game in the history of all video games. The people who made this were clearly immortal entities who wished to bring originallity back to gaming.

The reviews for this mark it as very good for a reason. As I've said in my reviews of other games that come across more as an art medium than a way to throw out a specific story, I love this kind of thing. I'm glad that I finally dug it out of my library, installed it, and played it.

What a lot of reviews here seem to miss is the sheer amount of references that the game makes. Television ranging from the late 50's to current trends, nods to Hunter S. Thompson, Clockwork Orange, every single pop culture thing you can think of - with an absolutely RAGING sense of parody and humor that nails cyberpunk tropes to the wall in an obvious and refreshing way. It's very hard to find any faults with the game itself.

Other than the fact that I had random graphical slow-downs and it crashed on me right at the ending. Yes, it is short, yes, the minigames are extremely fun - and yes, there is an overall plot underlying the entire thing. However, this seems to be a way to tie it together, where the main point of the game seems to be a message from the developers, "These are all things we like, and we want to make fun of all of them at the same time, and we came up with a really cool looking design to do it with." - The game is hilarious, the gags are funny, and the references made me light up at times, and believe me, there are a looootttt of references.

My favorite parts of the game I've already mentioned. It's artsy, it's bizarre, it uses the cyberpunk style-before-substance trope, along with a very weak plot that somehow manages to be a strength due to the extreme expresison of the parody within it, and the nods to famous pop culture icons throughout. While making a parody of many of these things, it does so in a Weird Al Yankovic manner, rather paying tribute to what it makes fun of. Drugs, booze, psychedelia, the breadth of pop culture ranging from late 1950's to the present, a unique style, and really funny achievements.

Other than crashing out, I can't think of anything that's bad with this game. Yes, it is short, but that's the whole point. I'm surprised I didn't see any Subgenius references, or maybe I wasn't looking too hard. Oh well, I'll cut them some slack on this, and hope that they genuinely do receive salvation or triple their money back.

I regret not playing this sooner. 7.5/10.

It is a very fun and charming game. I absolutely love the humor and the art style. But what it lacks is content. I beat the game in less than 2 hours...I would say defenitly not to get the game unless its on sale for 5$ or less. There just isn't enough content for me to recomend this to someone.

A funky robo-mid-century art style mixed up with a Hunter S. Thompson surrealist vibe makes for a strange setting. Great sound design adds to the fun, as do the numerous homages to video games of eras gone by.

All that said, the actual gameplay is pretty shallow. Fortunately, the setting doesn't overstay its welcome and the game is over before its flaws become tedious.

One last note: I expected this to be sort of an indie shooter, but it has a lot more adventure game DNA.

Overall worth your time but maybe not at full price.

This game has a lot of character. Its like a british version of the matrix, mixed with reboot, with a drop of acid thrown into the mix. After finishing the game do I understand the story? NO! But it really doesn't matter because I had a good time the whole way through. This game pretty much spoofs everything. Even though it was short it was a great play.

Right now its included in the current humble bundle for around another 10 days (Nov 1st 2014 today) so head over and pick it, and a bunch of other great games for dirt cheap.

Give it about a 8/10

★★★ out of four.

Jazzpunk is a comedic game aiming to surprise and amuse you. In the world of Jazzpunk, you play an agent named Polyblank. You explore the 3D world from a first-person perspective, doing everything except the main objective first so that you don't just see a only a very tiny fraction of what's actually in the game. It may be a bit thin to some players, but it still is the kind of thing only a videogame can do, and we need more stuff like this or evolved from it. Here a line something like "generic joke" can work because the whole thing is not generic. Yes, you'll get tired of such stuff if you talk to every NPC like ya should and sometimes it has referential "humor."

Well, sadly, I do feel to mention that it's probably a four hour game for people. The FOV is unchangable and character movement continues after you release movement. Also consider the price and buy when you won't feel disappointed. Regarding achievements, they are all just for poking about the Jazzpunk world well, so I suggest ignoring them due to light spoilers on your first playthrough and looking forward to them for the second.

Jazzpunk's a type we need more of. It's a 3D world with hotspots of jokes, cleverness, and surprises. When the price can't be wrong, tune your device for squelch and jump in.

Great game, the jazzy and 60's style pop graphics are a nice change in todays cookie cutter world. The game is absolutly hilarious and made me actually laugh a few times. There are some fun minigames and TONS of stuff to do in each level. I highly recommend giving this a go just for the laidback and casual fun this gives :) Overall its a fresh and interesting take the only problem i had with jazzpunk is that it was too short :)
