Jonny Quest


at first will seems to have no importance whatsoever, but is usual with those sort of game. If {UNINTELLIGIBLE} sure to mean curtains for your character later on.

It doesn't take long for you to get easily bogged down in Jonny Quest. Initially it seems like a simplistic adventure ramble, but you soon realise that you'll have to utilise all the cunning of a one-legged fox caught inside Battersea Dogs home to get out alive.

Unfortunately Jonny only has a very meagre supply of energy to start off with, so the sooner you learn to utilise this punching ability or find that handy stun gun, the better.

Jonny Quest is a peasant, smoothly scrolling affair with just enough puzzles to keep the average player entertained. Graphics are meagre, but purposeful, which, unfortunately, is also how I would describe the gameplay.

Overall Summary

Nothing new here, Jonny Quest is reminiscent of so many other adventure games it's unbelievable. Nicely presented, and mildly entertaining but no lasting appeal except, perhaps for younger gamesplayers.
