Description: Jack Spriggan is a VR platformer set in a fantasy world. You’ll climb, swing and jump up a towering beanstalk with the help of magical items found along the way. Every reach will bring you higher and higher into the clouds, towards a thundering menace. Swing a sword. Fight giant creatures. Climb into the sky. Hurl yourself across the void and then make enormous magical leaps by jumping in real life. Jack Spriggan features a novel jump mechanic that translates real life jumps into impossible leaps in game.
Review: Jack Spriggan is pretty much the same thing as classic kids Fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. But this is not going to be as easy as the book, this time there will be fights and climbing up using your own arms which can get rather tiring. I have to say it looks OK and feels like a grand adventure from the off. While I did find myself playing this for at least a few hours I have to question how much longer it would last given that there is only one Beanstalk. For me that £10.59 price tag is just way too much and I would wait for a half-price sale or better before giving it a go, but do consider trying it as its a pretty fun adventure.
