Poor Apple Jack – slaving away in the offices of a plastics company just isn't what apple-headed men were made for. 61 levels of varied puzzle-platform action await as he grabs enemies, hurls them together, runs, jumps, rolls, crushes, combos and rewinds his way through an epic new adventure!

What a great and crazy concept. The art-work in the cut-scenes is very charming. The graphics of the main game are crisp as a summer apple. Yes, if you love apples you will fall in love with this platforming apple of a man.

The controls are tight, which is a must for any serious platformer. The story of Apple Jack is just crazy enough to keep me very interested in our unsuspecting hero. Let's face it, who doesn't want to battle cuddly pandas by flinging them into each-other?

Apple Jack 2 is a game that doesn't take itself too seriously, but it does take being a great platformer very seriously. That combination makes this one of the most interesting and creative platformers I have played in some time.

You can slice up Apple Jack 2 for 80 MSP and sprinkle it into your XBLIG collection.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
