    Featuring a futuristic industrial aesthetic, cool musical tracks, and an unforgiving requirement of precision movements, Gear Jack is a captivating exercise in trial-and-error gaming.

    Gear Jack has its moments, but you might not even be able to enjoy its strengths unless you really enjoy getting booted back to "Go" every time you mess up. If that sounds like the kind of challenge you've been lusting for, though, Jacky will be happy to be your new robot pal.

    Don't be afraid of Gear Jack, but be prepared for a challenge.

    The frustration factor of Gear Jack took this from being a solid auto-running platformer into another game on the scrap heap for me. This is the kind of game that despairs me: it's a title with such promise, but it gets chucked away by its frustrating level design. It's a shame.

    With a few tweaks, Gear Jack could be a wonderful game. As it is, it's nearly crushed under a pile of frustrations.
