My opinion, on Jailbreaker is it’s a good time waster, nothing more. It doesn’t prove a great challenge. You just really have to time it right and you can easily score in the 2000’s. With a high score of 3268 without really putting much effort into it, it goes to show that it’s not that hard to master in 1 or 2 tries, so the developers have the potential to make this into a better game, but with the amount of resources this simple game uses, I’d hate to see how bad it’d be if they added a “Challenge a Friend” feature, where you race a ghost, although something simple as a high score label in the track showing your current high score would be nice to show players their improvement (something like Doodle Jump’s system).

Graphics: 3/5 – Basic, Simple, Really only 3 base colours and different shades of them.
UI: 4/5 – Basic, Easy to understand, maybe more settings, though.
Gameplay: 2/5 – Repetative is one word, Jailbreaker is another story.
Creativity: 0/5 – It’s the same as others I’ve seen, but just more “gore”.
Sound: 3/5 – Repetative, again. Just goes on and on, needs more variety.
Controls: 4/5 – Simple, there and don’t distract players from the game.
Difficulty: 3/5 – It’s more about the timing and the hand-eye coordination.
Longevity: 3/5 – One hit, death. Hitting anything (but glass) makes you die. Adds to the difficulty, but maybe having some objects that slow you down would be more enjoyable.
Entertainment: 3/5 – It’s entertaining to the point of a time waster, something to play on a train.
Value: 3/5 – It’s a good time waster, I got it when OpenFeint made it free, but for $0.99 (US Store), it’s good to have for a train ride.
Total: 28/50 or 56% – Want a time waster? Get it. Want a real game? Maybe wait and see if it goes up for free again.
