Sleepy Jack Review: Childish Tunnel Travel Shooter That Feels Like Cordy (Video)
Silver Tree has struck pure gold with the Cordy game series and they used some of the styling of that title and even its characters to create the game Sleepy Jack. This is a tunnel shooter priced at $5, that we tested on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.
The game is pretty simple, since it requires you to collect Zzzzs in order to keep a young boy named Jack asleep and playing with his toys. You have a time limit and the levels will take you to space, the wild west and underwater. Everything looks and feels like a fantasy universe and you get these extra music note levels, where you have to collect music notes to keep the background song playing.
Your weapons will include a blaster, ninja star and freeze bomb, plus a sort of grenade and you will have to throw them towards all sorts of flying robots. You can keep the weapon button pressed to charge a stronger shot and usually you’ll be spinning around in order to avoid the enemy projectiles. There are boss fights included in the game, 40 levels to have fun with and even new suits to unlock and a mech of sorts.
The level design is well done and varied and I have to say that on a graphical level the title is smartly design, with bright nuances and sparkly 3D looks. The title gets a 9 out of 10 from us and you can download it from here.
