If there’s one bothersome aspect of the App Store, its the lack of originality. Many developers are content with releasing tweaks on the same formula, which makes for a platform cluttered with cheap clones. Just Funny Games must’ve read my mind: their new release Jake Escapes (universal) is an original piece of work, both in its gameplay and its presentation.

I’m just going to come out and say it, no clever paragraph transitions or anything like that. I’m exhilarated that Jake Escapes HD feels and plays like it’s conceived for touch devices!
Jakes Escapes brings a remarkably new enjoyable experience over to the iPhone ad iPad. Smile.
Graphics-wise, the game looks great. Each of the character models are well designed, and the buildings have plenty of detail....The music and sound effects also go along perfectly with the graphic look and feel of the game......it really is a nice flowing, highly entertaining game with fantastic cut-scenes, a nice story, and great gameplay.
Jake Escapes is a great pick-up-and-play game that’s plenty of fun, and well worth its $2 price tag.
Meet Jake, the world's greatest thief. In fact he is such a good thief that he has become somewhat bored with stealing altogether and he is now desperate for the ultimate challenge.
Then there's Doc, Jake's friend and clever scientist. Doc managed to crack the Echelon Network and discovered the existence of an alien artifact known only as the G.R.A.I.L., hidden away in Area 51.
Stealing the G.R.A.I.L. is the least of Jake's worries; dealing with its awesome power is another matter entirely! Oh yeah, and the Crime Lords...
When the news of Jake's daring heist - and the existence of the G.R.A.I.L. - is revealed it seems everyone wants to get their hands on the mysterious artifact, including the most dangerous and devilish Crime Lords across the globe!
Then there's Bob. The U.S. Government is determined to capture Jake and recover the G.R.A.I.L. by any means, even if that entails unleashing the legendary and unfailing Secret Agent Bob! Watch out, Jake!
