Jet Kave Adventure
Top Critic Average
There is something comforting about Jet Kave Adventure. It doesn't take any risks or fly off on any wild tangents, it is just a solid, well-made side scrolling platformer. Mastering each level will be a challenge, but younger players will still enjoy the story and zipping around on the jet pack. Jolly good fun!
Jet Kave Adventure is a rock-solid (pun intended) platformer that doesn't outstay its welcome and offers addictive, retro-style gameplay. If you've ever enjoyed any of the Donkey Kong Country titles, Jet Kave Adventure is an earnest tribute that you're sure to enjoy.
While moment to moment gameplay can be fun, the overall process is just too repetitive for a genre that already has so many unique and innovative games in it.
Jet Kave Adventure will be on nobody's Game of the Year lists, but that really doesn't matter. What it does do is provide a reasonably solid 2.5D platformer that will keep you entertained for a few hours (and beyond, if you want to try to beat all the optional objectives).
Jet Kave Adventure looks good but feels uninspired and altogether too easy for the type of game it is. Considering the strong competition on the Switch, it's hard to recommend this one to any but the most die-hard platformer fans or the younger gamers out there looking to dip their toes in the genre.
Jet Kave Adventure does not revolutionize platform games but that doesn't mean it's not an enjoyable experience. With its well-designed levels, good execution and accessible nature that will be welcoming to all players, Jet Kave Adventure may not pulverize the competition but it certainly does a good job at delivering good gameplay mechanics and at getting the plaforming formula right.

Jet Kave Adventure is a fast-paced, mechanics-heavy platformer with a great sense of style.
Jet Kave Adventure is a fun action/platformer that anyone can enjoy. It's a little on the short side (for the price) and could use some extra features to keep the player interested, but it looks great and is easy to play.
The level art is gorgeous and does a great job to enliven the sci-fi-imbued prehistoric world that the developer has created, but the platforming itself is far too uniform and simplistic to retain the player's interest.
Each of the game's four levels is divided into nine stages, and by the time I reached stage nine, I was more than ready to move on to something else. Shorter levels with more variety would've alleviated this problem. There's a good game here, but it's best experienced in short bursts. If you keep hoping that Retro Studios would make a third Donkey Kong Country Returns game, you are probably the target audience for Jet Kave Adventure.
