Jukebox Adventure is the sequel to The Blues Brothers. Once again, the player has to choose a favourite Blues Brother and take him through different side-scrolling platform levels. He needs to collect records and use them as defence by throwing them towards enemies. There are also power-ups that can be gathered until the jukebox to progress to the next level is found.
The Blues Brothers were created by Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. The film of the same name became immensely popular and released many spin-off products on the market, like this game. The Jukebox Adventure was the second game starring the brothers.
This is an easy and fun no-brainer. In the beginning of the game you must choose which Blues Brother you want to play. As far as I know, your choice does not affect the game in any way. You will traverse many levels in this platform game, each with its own special monsters. Some of these will be fast and some will be slow, but they are all deadly, so you should always walk around armed. Your weaponry in the game is limited to LPs that you collect throughout all the missions. Try to use them cleverly, as there is a limit to your "ammunition". You can also pick up Power Boosters that will greatly increase your jumps, enabling you to explore hidden parts of the game.
The graphics and sound in the game are nice and help to bring the game alive. There isn't much more to tell you about the game. It's simple, but still good fun.
Well, you didn't expect Elwood wouldn't want to bring you one of the Blues Brothers-Games? I like the Jukebox Adventure most (in fact the other one I played isn't really playable in my opinion). So, I'm not a big fan of Jump'n'Runs (in fact I don't like them at all), but this one seems to be one of the rare gems of this genre. It is mostly the same as Giana Sisters - the old classic I used to play on my C64 back in the old days. God, did that game cost me money to buy new Joysticks... Yeah, this one can be real fun for a little game or two and all you Blues Brothers-Fans out there will surely love it like I do. I also like the comic-style graphics - they give the game the real Jump 'n Run-Feeling - I like that.
A follow-up to Image Work's 1991 Blues Brothers game, Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure features improved graphics, bigger levels, and --naturally-- more records than ever to collect. The game stars the Blues Brothers, a duo of popular musicians comprising Jake and Elwood. The game is based on a hit movie of the same name, which was in turned inspired by the real Blues Brothers band (although the band members bore little resemblance to their movie counterparts).
Gameplay is standard side-scrolling platform fare, except that various monsters, power-ups, and items are modified to fit with the Blues Brothers theme. Instead of shooting fireballs or laser, Elwood or Jake throws records (LP) that cut through monsters. These records are depletable, so you must be on a lookout to collect more of them whenever you can. You can control either Elwood or Jake, although they are not very different (Elwood, being a bit more portly than Jake, seems to move a bit slower though). With vibrant graphics, varied and inventive levels, and --of course-- rocking Blues Brothers soundtrack, Jukebox Adventures is a must-play for all fans of the duo, and a good introductory-level game for newbies. Arcade veterans should look elsewhere, because they will likely find the levels too short, and gameplay too easy.
