Man the forge and craft your best weapons for your warriors in Jacksmith! You're a donkey on a mission that takes you across the land, but the trails are blocked by a variety of monsters -- time to call in the local warrior clans for help! You'll design swords, bows, shields, and other weapons in a completely hands-on blacksmith shop. When all of your soldiers are equipped, it's off to battle to fight your way further down the path! While the warriors fight, you'll need to gather loot and help out with your trusty cannon. Collect better ores and parts to make even better weapons, and keep making progress across the land towards the evil wizard Dudley!

I like the game, but I thought the buying of new pieces took too much time and planning. I like the idea of expanding from the food games, but you lost some of the interesting elements from those games like when you add new toppings etc. You could add new elements to each weapon that they request to make the memory aspect of it more compelling. Overall still very good and a nice change of pace from the restaurants.

Boy, I used to be absolutely crazy about this game. Fantastic art, intuitive gameplay mechanics, and an immersive environment where we collect the parts necessary to make stuff. We were even given the privilege of seeing the weapons we had made in action, ON THE BATTLEFIELD, *AND* WE PARTICIPATED IN THE COMBAT!! I played this game for hours on end.

Bear in mind, none of that has changed. The only thing that DID change is that one patch. You know the one I'm talking about... It's the one that everyone's bitching about! I'm referring to the one that added those fucking fake loading screens just to skirt around AdBlock and shoehorn in ads for Papa's Pizzeria/Burgeria/Diarrhea/Gonorrhea/et ceteria. That was a genuinely upsetting "addition."

Please know that I'm sympathetic to how a big Flash game website has to advertise themselves one way or another; but this way just seemed underhanded. The Papa's Whateveria series is already enough of a cookie-cutter fiasco (in my opinion), and I assure you I will NEVER click on those dumbass ads (at least not intentionally). All in all, I feel it really speaks to the desperation of whomever makes those things that you let them bleed into your GOOD games.

Also bear in mind that I'm aware that the ads make up a fairly small portion of the time spent on any one session, so it's not that much to complain about. As with the reviewers below, I'm complaining about the principle of the thing... and then complacently continuing with the game.

Because it's still fun, goddammit. I REALLY don't want to admit it after what Papa's XYZia did to Jacksmith... but it is still really, really fun. :P

A little on the repetitive side, but it's very well made and creative. I like that you tried something different and unique.
