JinxAlthough there is plenty of fun to be had by adults when Halloween comes around, there is no denying that it should really be a holiday for the kids. When you consider trick-or-treating, dressing in funny costumes, and eating lots of candy, the kids are usually left wondering: "What about me?"

Enter Jinx to save the day. This gorgeous and adorable Flash game has kids written all over it, including those who are only kids-at-heart.

In this first episode, Jinx comes upon the house on the hill that is all lit up for once on a dark and stormy night. Upon knocking, the door opens and Jinx decides to go in and have a look around.

Use your mouse and clicking finger to help Jinx through the house, solving puzzles along the way to unravel the mystery inside. In classic point-and-click adventure style, this game will delight you even if it doesn't pose much of a challenge.

A very enjoyable Halloween romp. The robot's 'malfunction' messages particularly tickled me up. Looking forward to the next chapter; with the current cast assembled, it seems quite promising. On a side note, I enjoyed how the main character was never given a gender, making the game more accessible.

That was the cutest game I have ever, ever found. And the first one I could get through all on my own.

But seriously, I spent the entire time I was doing it going "N'awwww!" and the guys who are working on my house were kinda scared. A nice pick-me-up after yesterday's game, which, not going to lie here, gave me nightmares.

Overall, it's a pretty neat little game. ^_^ I love the little labels for the boxes and jars that seem to be in each room. "Random food box", "goo", "robot dog", etc... (Yeah, little things like that amuse me. ^_^") Awesome find for the holiday.

The volume of the sound effects differ to much (Eg. the thunder), and the predefined places that Jinx can stand in the rooms are just annoying! Other than that the game is ok, especially the labels on the jars and boxes are pretty funny. :)

Listen here is the WALKTHROUGH!!!

You start at the bottom of the hill. Follow the footprints to get to the mine. Go to the room on your LEFT. Pick up the coal from inside the kart. Go back to the main room and go RIGHT. Put the coal in the machine to turn it into a DIAMOND. Go back to the LEFT room. Click the LIGHT purple color rock at the bottom of the pile. Go into the power room and put the DIAMOND into the machine. This will get the elevator working. Go up. Press the RED button on the green door. You will hear a tune and see different color lights. Click on the pipes next to the door and REPEAT the tune. The door will open. Climb up the boxes and you are free.
As the professor, follow the footprints until you reach the place before the penguins. Click on the trees and follow the SECRET path. Click on the snowball and the penguins will run away. Go back down to where the penguins where and follow the path up. When you get to the BROWN tracks follow them to the RIGHT and you will be captured.

I'll post the next bit later.

For anyone else who might be wondering what befell "Jinx" after the cliff-hanger ending of "Jinx: A Dark and Stormy Night"...

YTV has put out four sequel games thus far -- two other point-and-click games, and two additional games both set in the same universe and both starring Jinx but each with different play mechanics. The end of the latest P&C game in the series leaves room for a possible follow-up game, but I couldn't find any info on when it might come out.

In the meantime, here are nice functional (as of the 31st of October, 2012, aka Halloween) links to the other games in the Jinx series:

  • Jinx 2: Miracle in the 34th Dimension picks up right where the first game left off. Jinx, the malfunctioning robot and the mad scientist land in a dimension that seems to revolve around Christmas... but not the version of Christmas Jinx or Dr. Frantic (or we) are familiar with. Point, click and help them get home!

  • Jinx 2 1/2: Portal Peril is a launcher game where your goal is to help Jinx catch up to the two other ...beings traveling interdimensionally with our little sheeted-ghost protagonist, while picking up as much candy and dodging as much interdimensional debris as possible.

  • Jinx 3: Escape from Area Fitty-Two [sic] begins with Jinx and the good(?) Doctor Frantic -- and their accidental stowaway -- closer to home but not quite there. Once again play is a matter of pointing and clicking, but the game area is significantly larger; the puzzles are often more complex, partly due to a degree of open-ended-ness making it at times challenging to figure out which actions need to be carried out in what order; and there is also a new mechanic. This time, you'll need to switch between controlling all three characters in order for them to work together and escape. Episode 3 also had the best jokes (according to my taste at least) so be sure to have each character click each hotspot wherever possible.

  • Jinx Escape, despite the name, is not a typical P&C escape game. It's instead a vertically-scrolling platformer* in which you try to guide Jinx through a seemingly-endless tower filled with moving platforms and fearsome Halloween monsters.

Like some other commenters, I was pleased that Jinx's gender identity is left ambiguous, allowing more players to identify with the Halloween-costumed hero. It didn't escape my notice that we're given no indication of what race Jinx is under that head-to-toe sheet, either. Especially in a game geared towards kids, this kind of deftly-crafted inclusiveness has far more influence on young people's perceptions of themselves and others than most players will be aware of -- in a good way. Game protagonists who are explicitly depicted as female and/or of other than European descent are nice to see, as well, of course. But a 'hero' who could literally be anyone under a concealing costume made an excellent choice for a game series like this one.

* I think that's what this type of game is called, but I don't usually play them because I'm not much good at reflex games. Correction welcome and encouraged if I've mislabeled Jinx Escape's game genre.
