Feelings of nostalgia are inevitable when you play The Jacksepticeye Game 2. Brought to you by its eponymous YouTuber, the 8-bit single-player adventure takes point-and-click games to a whole new level. There are brash battles, mysteries, and hidden items abound. Whether you were a gamer in the early 90s or are new to the scene, you’re in for a world of fun.
The Jacksepticeye Game 2 isn’t just for millennials, nor is it only for today’s youth. It has a unique style that harkens back to yesteryear while simultaneously capturing the essence of cutting-edge games. What does all that mean? Essentially, The Jacksepticeye Game 2 is for everyone—you really don’t have to know anything about the green-haired internet celeb.
The concept of the game is broad and familiar: something has gone wrong. More specifically, danger is lurking. And that’s all you need to get started. The single-player jaunt begins in Jacksepticeye’s room at home. Look around, hover over nearby items, and try to find useful tools. Eventually, the action will begin.
Staples of the Genre
Experienced gamers will be very familiar with the inventory system in The Jacksepticeye Game 2. There are 9 slots, which means you can hold up to that many items at once. Exploring every part of the environment is the only way to acquire every goodie. Certain tools are obvious, like keys and health power-ups. Keys must be used in specific doors, while health power-ups are available for use anytime, anywhere.
Other expected items include a barrage of weapons. However, the weapons in The Jacksepticeye Game 2 are “found” items. Nobody starts with a pistol-and-rifle loadout; this isn’t Call of Duty. Instead, you must find each weapon during regular gameplay. If you don’t discover the right weapon at the right time, you’ll have a harder time winning. A strong stick, Billy’s bow, and Mark’s shotgun are three of the fighting tools you should gather.
Reading is Learning
Feeding feelings of nostalgia, there is a fair amount of text in The Jacksepticeye Game 2. All dialogue between characters is to be read—not heard. Point your mouse at a certain item, and its name will appear. The top-right corner of the screen is reserved for descriptions of each item.
Sometimes, items descriptions are helpful. They might explain what a certain object is, or how you can use it. Other descriptions are simply humorous. For example, Sean’s glowing keyboard is “all lit up,” and his mouse is “not very ergonomic.” If an item has a funny or irreverent description, you can assume it won’t be worth grabbing.
There’s more than humor and mystery to The Jacksepticeye Game 2. If you’re good enough, you’ll start battling within the first few minutes of gameplay. If not, you’ll have to wait a little while longer. Enemies aren’t everywhere at all times. Instead, they will appear in very specific locations. When you walk near the trees in Sean’s backyard, you will encounter a rather odd-looking foe. When you walk back into the kitchen, you can expect to face even scarier monsters.
The Jacksepticeye Game 2 has plenty of action, but it’s not the primary draw. Surprisingly, the action is still great fun. Each battle is an intense melee bout. Highly corrupted, advanced enemies are quite difficult to beat. You’ll have to practice swinging your karate stick hard and fast to win. Or, just find the shotgun. Even the most treacherous battles are winnable with the right weapon.
Good to Know
The Jacksepticeye Game 2 is a single-player adventure. But, you won’t be alone when fighting strange beings. Another famous YouTuber is along for the ride. We’ve hinted at his identity, but you’ll have to play the game to reveal the full truth. Nonetheless, Sean’s famous pal will be at the ready with advice, free rides, and free weapons.
Another fun fact is that you can learn from your mistakes. Think of each loss as a small win—one through which you learn how to get past the next obstacle. There are many layers to The Jacksepticeye Game 2, and being observant is essential to achieving victory. On the other hand, for those who just want to play recklessly, that’s fun, too!
