JJ & Jeff is a reskinned (I'm not sure that nomenclature even applies here) version of Kato-chan and Ken-chan, an absurdist scatological platformer featuring two Japanese comedians/TV hosts that's largely known for its poop gags. It's also one of the most well-known TurboGrafx-16 games as a result, so it's perfect for a quick glance if not a full TurboMento-12. Because honestly, playing this game is kind of a chore.
I've Covered Some Crap Games, But This Takes the Urinal Cake
Kato-chan and Ken-chan isn't quite as awful as I'm letting on. It's a game that rewards experimentation and memorization and I can respect that aspect of it at least, if very few of its other prominent facets. You know, the ones involving butts.
It deserves acknowledgement though, and not just because it's "that one infamous TurboGrafx-16 game with all the farts". It takes risks and has a strong comedic auteur sensibility to it which sets it apart from the many generic platformers that were around in the 16-bit era. Far too many games of that era were content to ape Super Mario Bros. without trying to forge their own path. Of course, I really don't like playing it, which is perhaps a bigger detriment than just being a bit derivative. Next game.
