    This game is such a nice puzzle game. It's a cheap episode and it's really fun. Maybe it even gives us a little bit of a PS Vita comeback!

    The first episode of Jacob Jones’ adventure leaves me wanting more and I’m already waiting for the next part. It’s a great little title that will appeal to any gamer that loves a good puzzle.

    While the first episode is a little uneven in its story and puzzle pacing at times, Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery is a delightfully stylish debut that makes me want to come back for more.

    This is a great idea, with some brilliant puzzles and some not-so-brilliant ones. Still, taking into account its affordable price, we think it deserves a try.

    Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery is an episodic title and the first episode has recently been released. There's a lot of text to tell the story and there's a couple of difficult puzzles to get through. Long story short: this is a fun PlayStation Vita game, available at a low price.

    Overall probably the greatest success of A Bump in the Night is taking Jacob and ensuring that his character is likable, rather than simply presenting him as one of those annoying know-it-all kids that you enjoyed not being friends with when you were younger. The storytelling may be linear but as we’ve seen with Telltale’s The Walking Dead that’s no obstacle for a good yarn.

    This is a satisfactory title that contains some nice graphics and caricatured characters, though the story is undemanding.

    I loved the game, puzzles well developed, graphics beautiful and intelligent humor. For this amount 2.99) it will be worth much, can not wait for the next episodes. Expand

    This is a great looking game on the VITA and all for only £1.59. They should make some vinyl toys of the characters, I'd buy them. Looking forwards to episode 2! Expand

    Loverly game reminiscent of Layton, but with better graphics and funnier dialogue.. The touch screen controls are intuitive and there are a great meta game hidden within Fab! Expand

    A cute little puzzler. Puzzles are very hit and miss, some easy, some just right, some almost impossible without getting hints. But for the cheap price, adorable graphics and characters, and decent exploration, it's well worth a purchase. Looking forward to continuing the storyline in part 2... Expand

    Well done various puzzles. Some of them are quite easy, some of them are challenging brain-burners, but allways entertaining with cute story in between.
    I am looking forward to the next episode.

    Good graphics, funny dialogues, adorable characters, puzzles that have a big range from easy, to almost impossible (you must search on the internet on how to solve) and for that price I think it's well worth a purchase. Collapse
