My favorite place in the game is the cave. It contains interesting areas and plenty of puzzles. It also contains one of my favorite puzzles: the wall of fruit. As you explore the cave, it becomes less and less like a cave (it contains stuff like a telephone booth and a safe). [...] Overall, Jacaranda Jim is a good game and worth playing, but it could have been an excellent game if the puzzles had been better.
The humour is a bit restrained throughout, despite the introduction, but can afford a laugh on the odd occasion. I personally think this is a good thing, the humour taking second place to the puzzles. Some authors prefer to squeeze the puzzles in amongst the jokes - it works sometimes, but often doesn't. With JJ, however, the whole humour-puzzle interaction works very well, each one complimenting the other. (Grimwold)
All in all this game was worth the money, not to the extent of intriguing me but to the point where I want to go back and play the game many times over. (Rusty)

This was the game that got me into Interactive Fiction all those years ago. I remember many a lunchtime rushing down to the computer lab to see if I could get any further.
