Totally Free Eco Platformer Jack Barau Flaps Onto Android
A charming new platformer about saving an endangered species from extinction called Jack Barau has landed on Android. This completely free sidescrolling adventure from indie developer Gamayun Productions puts players in the swashbuckling boots of avian pirate Jack Barau as he journeys around the island of Réunion in search of lost Barau’s petrel birds, a very real and threatened species that the game aims to bring awareness to. Taking its cue from a real life phenomenon, players must find Jack’s lost compadres and carefully guide them to the end of the level without letting them get distracted by bright sources of light in the night. There are plenty of enemy creatures scouring each stage with bright searchlights so players will need both good timing and slick moves if they want to lead their fluffy charges home in one piece. With its stylish character art, interesting gameplay, and totally free price tag Jack Barau is a neat new platformer with a positive message.
Jack Barau is free to download on Google Play.
