Naughty toddler Jack finds himself, in this famous sequel, to Africa, with the aim of progressing through 192 screens of platform action. The game is really fun and humorous to play but you must move very carefully. This was a standard 8bit home-computer release back to the mid 80's.
 
Review
Jack the Nipper IIStory: Youve been parachuted into the jungle, wearing nothing but your nappy, and you must fight wild animals (that wear sunglasses!), throwing coconuts at them. This sequel is really funny. First, it is huge and the graphics are really different from one area to the next. There are many places to explore and its easy to get lost in this game. You must always be ready to face either upcoming enemies (such as bats, birds, locals, elephants etc but in a very funny and cartoonish way) or deadly pits, waters, lava and so on. Most of the time you must take a quick decision before someone or something gets you. Some of the nasties can be just avoided by jumping over them, and some other must be shot using .. coconuts (limited ammo though). The game is really fun to play but hard to progress. Its rather difficult, and you must move very carefully. Eventually, the action is pleasant and... well, this is a very good platform game and one of my favorites back to the days!

The game was released only on tape and run 48k Spectrums. It featured nice colorful and funny detailed graphics (jungle, rivers, animals, native tribes etc), and looked similar to the CPC but of limited colors (it was another Spectrum port to the CPC). Sprites are cute and funny, and move fast and smooth though, there is no scrolling here (the game runs in flick-screen mode). Generally, this game is very pleasant to watch even if it does use any special graphic techniques. For me it is one of the best looking early Spectrum games.
The intro music tune is funny here too (but limited to the old YM sound generator of the 48k models) whilst there are some funny SFX during gameplay.
