Absolutely no improvements since its Desura launch, no controller support, no Steam features, no proper resolution settings, no optimised performance.

Don't buy this.

First off I should apologize for not playing at least 2-3 hours on the game before reviewing. 30 min (or so) in and I've got to make dinner. That said the last 29 min (or so) has been frustrating.

In bundles
Low system specs needed
May get steam cards (not as August 8th 2015)
Dev is (was) very helpful

Graphic options
Controls are not percise enough for us old guys / non-super twitch level gamers
Price (4.49 CDN) - wait to get this in a bundle

5/10 -2 controls -1 graphics -1 price +2 Dev = 3/10 (4/10 if in a bundle)

So yet another thumbs sideways game. I'm not into scrollers, so that may be affecting my decision. I'm OK with crappy graphics if the game is fun. I'm not OK with crappy controls and I just cannot get the hang of the controls with enough percision to have fun.

If I come back to this game and they have improved the controls then I will re-review ... as I do want to like the game. For now, I'm just frustrated. Not fun = Thumbs down.

I tried to find a positive aspect about this game but failed, so here's why you shouldn't even consider purchasing this game:

- Bad graphics and effects
- Horrible controls
- Long loading times paired with confusing menus
- No 1080p resolution setting
- Glitchy traps
- Overwhelmingly annoying music and sfx

I really tried to think of at least one appealing/good thing about Tompi Jones but there isn't anything, except that its colorful. The effects and graphics are terrible, it has nonresponsive, horrible controls (I used an xbox 360 controller), ridiculously long loading times(think early ps1), annoying music, and 4 resolution settings with 1080p not included. Fix the darn buggy mess, then maybe I'll try playing again.

Just look at the video...

I seriously hope this wasn't the developers' actual vision to release this game. Imagine if this unplayable platform adventure was what they really had in mind.

Well it's not the worst platformer I've ever played. I'd only recommend it if you can get it very cheap, but don't expect more than a slightly challenging mediocre explorative platformer that looks like it came straight from the 90s.

This game should be free to play... Not just once, but about once in every level I found myself falling through the ground. Once I got stuck inside a wall and unable to get loose.. and the graphics? Sure I understand if the developer is going for that ps1 platformer feel but fix these damn bugs or set it to f2p. Its not very nice to make people pay 3,99 for something that's just about unplayable. Also found it funny how the aztecs owned euros... run out of ideas for the coin design? Not recommending this. Maybe when the dev decides to fix these bugs where you fall through solid ground and glitch stuck but else? Nope.
EDIT: It's just been confirmed this game can't even be completed. I get to world 2 level 4, the game shuts down and gives me an error messages about a memory violation. My pc memory is just fine so its the game. And I can't get past this level cause it happens every time I start this one. DON'T BUY.

If this game didn't exist the world would be a better place. It's a platformer that fails at every part of platforming. The same annoying song plays throughout the whole game. Trying to use a gamepad doesn't work because your guy just continually runs forward. Using keyboard/mouse, controls are terrible, with L mouse jumping, even though it says space does it. Only 2 preset config, can't set your own. The levels are boring, bland, and uninteresting. The graphics are terrible, not in a retro or pixel way, but in a blocky ugly poopy way. The actual platforming mechanics are terrible. The jump super inaccurately and floaty like. Your wall jumps are incontrollable. When you try and use the jetpack you lag down quickly but only ascend slowly, and its hard to control. The combat is just you spamming attack to throw knives, but it doesn't really work. You can only throw straight forward but there are enemies that attack you from above and below meaning you get hurt a lot. There are a certain number of lives, and then continues. If you want to buy more the has a shop that links to their website.....because this is F2P now or what?

Look everywhere and anywhere else besides this game to fulfill your platforming needs. The $2 price tag is way too rich, 20 cents sounds more reasonable.

This game would have been garbage if it was released 15 years ago.

I'm sorry, I don't usually write reviews, but this is another game I need to rant about....memory access violation through all three tutorials....can't skip them either even if I wanted to to get to the real stages.....

This game must not be laptop friendly..... or doesn't like mine at least, for some reason. Here, check this thread out, I posted on there and never heard back.....from the devs or anyone else with a similar probem like me....yes, I actually patiently waited for a reply thinking maybe, ok I'll give them some time to get back to me, perhaps they're busy now and might reply back in at most a week's time, four months later - no replies; so either the devs are too busy to bother helping me out or this was just cash grab and nothing more...

Waste of my time and money....why did I even bother with this piece of crap.....

After playing this game through a couple times, it's safe to say that Tompi Jones by DreamsSoftGames is truly a masterpiece of a game. The game has great graphics and very smooth controls. Everything responds right away and I had no problem completing the game without any techinical difficulties.This game doesn't have much of a story, however the unique stages and abilities Tompi can use makes up for it. Furthermore, the game is slightly challenging at times, which is good for people like me who loves problem solving. Like Donkey Kong, I believe Tompi Jones can be a 2-d platformer that could stand the test of time. I give Tompi Jones a solid 9/10 give it a try someday as it's worth your money and time. Hopefully, an HD remake could come out and It would make me and a lot of other people a happy camper.
