review: Read my reviews @ Adventure Gamers®
The Jolly Gang's Spooky Adventure | rating: 1.5/5
The Jolly Gang's Misadventures in Africa | rating: 2/5
summary: The Jolly Gang's Spooky Adventure focuses neither on the gang nor on the spooks, and offers at best a couple hours of lighthearted but linear, generic casual adventuring.
The Jolly Gang's Misadventures in Africa fixes some of its predecessor's design flaws and considerably improves the puzzles, but still disappoints with its often-ambiguous gameplay and subpar production quality.
