Flash Jacks

Author Comments

When I was a child, I knew about jacks, but never got the chance to play it. Until we got a computer around 20 years ago. There was a game called 'Jacks', which I loved. This is a remake in Flash from memory of the layout. Programming all original in Actionscript 3.0

EDIT :I accidentally uploaded a glitchy version, proper version is up now.

like it

not too easy, not too dificult.

Some visual complaints

I like the game. But if you want to improve it, you need to think about changing the style of the text and possibly the background. What would really make it sing and give you a ten would be the addition of some inbetween graphics/animations (subtle things like the jacks glowing when clicked briefly then fading out, or a possible splash screen between rounds). Overall enjoyable, but a ways to go yet

polyrhythmm responds:

I have a new game in the works that has some good 'show off' animations in it. Thanks for the feedback. I always jump the gun when it comes to putting it on newground.

I like it.

Text could be better, but that's probably because I don't love Times New Roman personally.
Background could be nicer too.
Add sound...
But other than that, alls you really need is some art, and its really nice.
Gooood programming.

polyrhythmm responds:

Ah, damn... I'm using a custom font, but because you dont have it, it defaults to TNRoman. I didnt think of embedding it.

Fun - Discovered new Exploit
