A decent mix of tower defense and puzzle game with an interesting art style and not much originality in terms of gameplay.

Other things like Hero Mode, where you get to pilot a minion, adds some novel twists to kick around with, but overall I felt myself craving something that pushed my puzzle brain like Baba is You or challenged my defense know-how like Plants vs. Zombies. JARS is an inoffensive and fun diversion that apes the two genres without entirely surpassing them or creating something wholly new.

JARS is a strategy puzzle with tower defense elements from Mousetrap Games and Daedalic Entertainment, providing endless hours of jar-opening fun along with an intriguing story and quirky artwork. The puzzles themselves offer a ton of replayability, but it's the story that will ultimately make a lasting impression after every level.

It may not be the deepest or most strategic tower defense game out there but JARS' sense of randomness makes it rather enjoyable.
