There are plenty of solid mobile ports on Switch–see Riptide GP: Renegade and Astro Duel Deluxe–but Jumping Joe & Friends is not one of them. The local multiplayer is the game's best feature, but ultimately the game is just way too bland.

Given its simplicity and bright presentation, it's best recommended for a younger audience.

If its simplicity is more than welcome when it comes to pic up and play, it risks making the game way too repetitive after a short amount of time, whether on solo or multiplayer, and that makes it feel like this gae could be more compelling and involving than it actually is.

Jumping Joe & Friends is well developed and fun, but by its very nature is not the type of game you'll play with any degree of frequency. It's more like those board games you find stashed away on the upper shelf of the closet and think, “Hey, I remember this! This was fun!” But then you get it down and play a few rounds and soon remember why it had been up on that shelf for so long.
