  • Summary: The chase is on! Just Funny Games proudly introduces its latest game for iPad and iPhone: Jake Escapes! A new and original arcade action game with a unique grindhouse visual style. JAKE ESCAPES IS AVAILABLE ON: NEW IPAD (IPAD3), IPAD 2, IPHONE 4S, AND IPHONE 4. (other devices will be supported soon…)

    Meet Jake, the world's greatest thief. In fact he is such a good thief that he has become somewhat bored with stealing altogether and he is now desperate for the ultimate challenge.

    Then there's Doc, Jake's friend and clever scientist. Doc managed to crack the Echelon Network and discovered the existence of an alien artifact known only as the G.R.A.I.L., hidden away in Area 51.
    Stealing the G.R.A.I.L. is the least of Jake's worries; dealing with its awesome power is another matter entirely! Oh yeah, and the Crime Lords...

    When the news of Jake's daring heist - and the existence of the G.R.A.I.L. - is revealed it seems everyone wants to get their hands on the mysterious artifact, including the most dangerous and devilish Crime Lords across the globe!

    Then there's Bob. The U.S. Government is determined to capture Jake and recover the G.R.A.I.L. by any means, even if that entails unleashing the legendary and unfailing Secret Agent Bob! Watch out, Jake!

    There are only 17 total "jobs" in the game for players to compete. This is simply too little. The levels don't take long to complete and, beside from boss battles, they aren't particularly challenging.

    Featuring a quirky storyline, simple mechanics, and path-finding gameplay, Jake Escapes falls a bit short on both content and excitement.

    A unique concept and clever visual designs aren't enough to stretch Jake Escape HD's gameplay beyond its limited borders, making a fun, but short title lacking depth.

    A solidly-designed package that would surely entice any thief-in-training to take a look. With this one, the only problem is that the package you're snagging is less "diamonds" and more "diamonds in the rough."

    An attractively presented arcade climber that's seriously undermined by frustrating controls and unadventurous design.
