Comic Jumper Review

 

What a failing super hero to do when his own comic gets canceled? Luckily for Captain Smiley, the nice folks at Twisted Pixel are giving him the chance to guest star in other comics until he can get back on his feet.

While this is a short game, the gameplay still manages to wear thin. The mechanics are still the same from the very first issue to the very last. The game took me a total of 5 hours 37 minutes to complete, and I was always hoping something different...

Great style and innovative use of breaking the fourth wall. Well done script and a lot of extra content for your money

Terrible gameplay mechanics and repetative level design really damage the overall product

Being influenced by the colourful world of comic books, Comic Jumper has a stunning visual palette. In places the graphics are not always up to scratch, but for the most part the visual style carries its quality by means of stylish exaggeration. The...

Review: Comic Jumper

 

When I was deciding if I was going to purchase an Xbox 360, there was the obvious question of what games would separate the 360 and the PS3. There are several full retail releases that are not exclusive and have feature parity  on both systems. Most...

Comic Jumper Review for the XBOX360

 

Going where no emoticon-faced superhero has gone before!

Incredible presentation; Hilarious dialogue; Tons of bonus contect to unlock; Challenging but bearable

Sometimes unfriendly checkpoint system

Comic Jumper is a game at odds with itself. It is entertaining, visually striking, well-written, and genuinely funny. To get to all of those things, though, you have to play a mediocre game. Comic Jumper can't decide what it ought to be in terms of...

Snappy writing, great art direction

Mediocre gameplay mechanics

Captain Smiley is not a household name. Even though he sports a friendly exterior and has a good sense of charm, his comic books just aren't interesting enough to keep the superhero employed. His books are being ripped up or, used as toilet paper or...

Comic Jumper is a fun action game full of fresh ideas and awesome level designs. Unfortunately, it's marred by dated gameplay and a lot of repetition. But what it lacks in depth, it more than makes up for in charm. Twisted Pixel has developed a game...

Comic Jumper Review (Xbox 360)

 

But while so many things work exceedingly well in the game, there are a few minor stumbling blocks along the way. But all-in, you're left knowing just how much fun Twisted Pixel had bringing this world to life

style side-scrolling bullet-hell. There are lots of projectiles to dodge, from deadly paper fans to manga hearts. Each level holds multiple styles of play and they transition smoothly from one to the next

Threatened with becoming just another failed superhero, Captain Smiley is rescued by the fine folks at Twisted Pixel who provide him with a base of operations and Comic Jumping technology allowing him and his back-talking "chestkick" named Star to leap...

Comic Jumper- Xbox 360

 

It's horrible to say, horrible to trash something that's been lovingly put together by a dedicated group of developers, but Comic Jumper: Adventures Of Captain Smiley is, sadly, a case of style over substance.

Consumer review by:

Comic Jumper- Xbox 360

 

Comic Jumper is filled with brilliant humor and writing, horrendous design, and repetitive gameplay. If the humor and art style are enough to overshadow the many downfalls of this game, then have at it. Otherwise stay as far away from this title as you...
