    This game takes me back!

    I never set out to write reviews for this site since so many others will record their own thoughts both useful and not so useful - where my insignificant ramblings might fit never occurred to me. However, I am in the... Read Full Review

    Even after fifteen years, this game is still an enjoyable classic.

    Some games never cease to keep your interest and Jill of the Jungle is one of them. Even after years of playing console and computer games with more advanced graphics, sounds and the like, this old DOS classic by Epic re... Read Full Review

    A classic game that is cleverly thought out for its time.

    I won't rate this game based on todays standards as our standards for an amazing video game is near impossible to live up too. I will base this game off of the experience I have had with it. Playing Jill of the Jungle as... Read Full Review

    Old platformer, some pixely but colourful, snappy controls (on a 386SX-16), good stuff.

    Classic - one screenshot says it all. And I like the brrp-ing of the PC-speaker. If you play this, you will know a lot about the standards of the games backthen. This is THE standard (on PC). The controls, the types of ... Read Full Review

    See Jill run.

    Wow, I didn't expect anyone to have reviewed this thing in 2005. The last time I've played this thing was in '96, I think. I'm feeling retro today thus the reviews on old school games. Despite the lack of flashy graphics... Read Full Review

    A decent PC game for first time gamers.

    I must admit that I have played all three Jill of the Jungle games and whilst they are graphicly simplistic, they are a great place to start. It is possible to clock the games in a day or two if you play continuously. I ... Read Full Review

    Jill of the Jungle is an odd, yet memorable experience that no self-respecting retro gamer should miss.

    'Jill of the Jungle' was another one of those influential side scrollers of the early 90s. Sure, it was inspired by earlier, more superior side scrollers such as 'Commander Keen', but JotJ is certainly a unique, yet incr... Read Full Review
