domination. And he's created an army
nasty mutant vegatables to carry out his
doomsday plot. That is, until he encounters
the fiendish charms of Jersey Devil ...hmmm-
if he only knew what he was getting into!

Artistically speaking the game is quite well
done. The team at Malofilm (formerly
Readysoft) have managed to capture the look
of Braindead 13 and translated it well into a
3D world. Eerie but cartoony level design is
what was aimed for and largely achieved.
Enemy and boss designs are obviously from
the same school and by and large are also
Levels themselves consist largely of running
and jumping from platform to
platform, but Jersey Devil does toss in some small level of exploration and
puzzle solving. The devil's moves include a punch (a la Mario/Croc), a tail
spin (a la Crash/Croc), climbs poles (a la Mario). He does have one unique
ability and that's gliding via the use of his small wings, though this is still not
The game's control is quite tight and feels very good using the dual-shock
analog controller. Judging distances can sometimes be a little difficult, but a
shadow under the devil usually lets people see where they're going even on
big falls. One of the glaring oversights of the game is the inability for the
devil to look up or down. Thus in trying to see where objects are or even
trying to scout where one's next jump should be are far harder than they
should be. If there were one area to copy Croc it would have been the use of
the second analog pad for a means of looking around the environment.
On the audio side, sound effects and background music are well composed.
Overall, Jersey Devil isn't a bad game. Actually, quite the contrary it
and fairly well designed, but if you're looking for anything you haven't seen
before, this isn't the title for you.
JERSEY DEVIL TIPS AND TRICKS
Extra Life in the Park
In the park level, follow the road from the
start. Walk up to the second fountain you
come to. Go left and follow the road come
to until you see a statue on the right that
looks like a woman holding a long piece of
paper. Tail whip it 3 times. Each time you
hit it it should go a little off balance. After 3
hits, it should fall over and a life will pop
Go outside the museum level to the big
statue. Walk behind it and it says " 02P "
That means when you get your power level
at 02, push the statue and you should fall
into the secret level.
Unlimited Extra Lives
In the beginning of the game, get the extra
life on top of the fountain. Then, pause the
game and check your status. Unpause the
game and there will be another extra life on
top of the fountain. Keep on doing this for
unlimited extra lives!
