Jazz: Trump’s journey

Jazz: Trump’s journey is a gripping puzzle game introduced by BulkyPix and developed by EggBall.  The game is about making a young man Trump win a New Orleans Music Band contest. Jazz: Trump’s journey runs on devices using Apple’s iOS Version 4.0 or later (iPad, iPhone and iPod touch).

This platformer is set in the 1920s New Orleans, where the player plays a young man Trump who wants to win the New Orleans Music Band contest. The theme of the soundtrack, as can be guessed from the title, is Jazz. In order to participate in the contest, Trump needs to create a band of four members. The gameplay starts with a retro look in Trumps’s life in his hometown New Orleans and his go-get-it attitude to fulfil his dream. This creates the story for the gameplay and cannot be skipped. At first one feels this a bit lengthy but the later part of the game more than compensates for it.

Trump’s journey is filled incredible adventures as you move forward in the game. You can learn to control time by using the trumpet. The graphics are set in a typical 1920s New Orleans type of neighbourhood with traditional roof tops, streets and prisons.

The gameplay involves collecting music melodies as you progress, reaching checkpoints, getting hidden pictures, searching for unlockables that tell more of Trump’s stories, and finding band members. Trump needs to climb, jump and bounce his way through more than 15 lengthy side scrolling stages. Warehouses become vertical bars of moving platforms, and parades evidently travel along a skyline. Other mechanics present include wall jumping, moving platforms and placing bocks onto switches. The obstacles include spike pits or racist police officers.

Each time you bag a new band member, his music instrument is added to the soundtrack. This is a very interesting and a beautiful innovation. The soundtrack is very catching and refreshing. The band members are given an identity and you can see how winning the competition can transform their lives.

The game features the beautiful lady Coquelicot whose heart Trump wants to win by winning the contest that will make him a Jazz music star.

Overall Jazz: trump’s journey proves to be an interesting out-of-the-box puzzler with an excellent presentation and a lovely soundtrack, composed by jazz musicians. The audio style is amazing and the gaming graphics excellent and crisp. You follow the latest updates and send your feedback on the game’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
