Default Jake Escapes (by Just Funny Games) - Coming 10th May 2012

I'm here to announce last Just Funny Games work: Jake Escapes
It will be available on 10th May 2012 on appStore, it's an universal app, but we thought it and optimized for iPad (and obviously, we support new iPad quality).


Jake is the most wanted, and talented thief on the whole planet. Hes
so good at stealing that he is almost bored. He needs a new challenge,
the impossible heist to feel alive and find enthusiasm once again.
But it would be unfair to continue to talk about Jake, without introducing his loyal assistant: Doc.
Doc is an aging but very clever scientist, that has been helping Jake for many years.
Thanks to his incredible abilities, Doc has managed to breach into the
Echelon Network, the world's tapping system.
From Echelon comes the opportunity Jake was looking for.
Jake and Doc discover that an alien artifact is guarded in Area 51 named
G.R.A.I.L. The true powers of the artifact are unknown.


Stealing the GRAIL is easy for the most gifted thief of the world.
However, he is unsure what kind of trouble he will get into.
The news of the robbery is leaked to the world's crime organizations
and the most feared Bosses are keen to get hold of the the mysterius
object.


But troubles do not stop here for Jake: the US Government has allertde Bob, the unfailing secret agent! Bob is assigned the mission to catch Jake
and retrieve the G.R.A.I.L.
Doc needs to figure out quickly how to use the G.R.A.I.L., and asks you to retreive various objects such as gloves and dirty T-shirts during the game.
You need to stay on guard and help Jake escape from Area 51 and climb the Bosses' skyscrapers around the world.


Stay tuned! Next days I'll post more details, images and video about the game!

OMG! This looks like a really gorgeous updated version of the arcade classic Crazy Climber, one of my favorite games of all time! I really, really hope that I'm right about this - if it is, I will be incredibly happy. Looking forward to seeing video.

Well, when we started thinking about Jake, our proposal was to build something similar... Then, during brain storming we added something more, but yes, if you are a Crazy Climber fan I suppose you'll like our game!

Yes, I can see from just the screenshots that you've added a fair bit of new ideas and gameplay elements, which is great. Definitely looking forward to learning more, and seeing this in action.

I`m trying to get some Preview Build from the Developer so I can create a HD Sneak Peek Gameplay Trailer for the Forum.

Will report back as soon as the Developer has told me how much Build I have to destroy to get the Build

Default More information

As I promised, more information about the game!

Here more infos about Jake, DOC and Bob:

JAKE: The world most famous thief!
He steals for passion, always looking for new challenges.
He hasn't got much morals, but he often falls madly in love. His father was from Appleton (Winscosin) and his mother from Bordeaux. He learnt the art from his grandfather, a crime wizard and funambulist, nicknamed
"the black cat".



DOC: THE SCIENTIST
He assists JAKE in his heists, providing technological gadgets. he is able to monitor all the conversation on the planet! He soon realised that THE ALIEN artifact can be calibrated in order to choose the target location.
He experiment with all sorts of objects to understand how the artifact works.



BOB: the unfailing secret agent
We know very little about Bob.
He goes unnoticed thank to his common look. But Bob has no mercy for crime and he doesn't stop until he has secure criminals to justice.



TO BE CONTINUED...

Carramba!!! Crazy climber? I used to play it when a was a kid (so xxx years ago )..
Lately I'm seeing lots of cool arcade games, reborn and revived to a new life in year 2012!!
Spellsword, Swordigo, Beans Quest, Arcade Jumper...

I'm glad to hear that also the good old Crazy Climber got its restyle..and what a restyle!! (love the graphic of these screenshots)

As someone who used to live near Appleton, WI I'm surprised I didn't see Jake around. He has a pretty distinctive look.

I like Bob...I wanna meet him!! ahahah he's "got the look"!!
The unfailing pot-bellied and "teddybeary" agent....
It's the Rayban Aviator that gives him the unsparing and merciless look!
ahah soo fun!!!

Waiting for more
