Jan 26, 2012 10:23 AM –
Sleepy Jack is a majestically beautiful dream-scape shooter. Fly through Jack’s dreams collecting Z’s, shooting baddies and completing the 40 levels of scintillating gameplay. Blisteringly fast and chock full of eye-candy you’ll be stunned that a game like this doesn’t require a console! From the creators of Cordy, Android gaming doesn’t get quite as dreamy as this…
Tested on: HTC Desire HD
Pros & Cons:
- Graphics to die for!
- Good sound!
- Lots of weapons!
- 40 fast-paced levels!
- OpenFeint achievements!
- Occasional force closure, sometimes unresponsive.
Sleepy Jack is a cute game in which you control a little boy, Jack, in his lucid and eventful dreams. And boy does this kid dream! Swirling tube racing, laser shooting, baddie zapping and Z catching is all in a good nights sleep for our young protagonist. Initially Cordy- from the popular Android game from the same developers- introduces you to the game environment and gives you handy instructions to follow as you get to know the controls.
You can control the game in three ways. Either ‘Classic’ on screen controls, ‘Slider’- from side to side or ‘Accelerometer’ tilt control. For me the accelerometer actually felt the most intuitive, but you might find the others better. Definitely experiment! There are a whopping 40 dream levels to complete, each with different things to complete to finish the level. The levels are timed and you also unlock achievements. The integration of OpenFeint here means you can share your skills with friends online.
Sleep Jack is a game which literally drips in rich graphical detail. From the dazzling backdrops to the highly detailed laser fire and game physics it’s a game that will set your device alight with stunning visuals. It’s quite ridiculous really- these graphics belong on a decent console, not a mobile device! The scenery is both immersive and richly designed creating an absorbing and fun environment. Which is good as you might be here for some time!

If flying around barrel rolling, firing lasers, shooting baddies and collecting Z’s doesn’t sound like fun I don’t know what does. Sleepy Jack is incredibly immersive and more fun you can throw a pillow at.
I don’t think the game is automatically addictive as some games are- but seeing the stunning visuals is very compelling. You keep going back to see your screen light up with the gorgeous graphics and before you know it, the game has you. Very, VERY difficult to put down.
There just aren’t many games as gorgeously syrupy and lush as Sleepy Jack. It’s among the sweetest and most rewarding eye-candy on the Android platform.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
Accelerometer controls felt, for me, the most intuitive, but perhaps not the most responsive. The sound is exemplary too, sound effects, blasting and notifications accompany a rich soundtrack which works perfectly with the game.
