What parents need to know

Ease of play

Like all time-management games, this one requires players to keep a strong focus on customers, tend to their needs, and keep up with the occasionally frenetic pace. The concept is universally accessible but as the game progresses, it gets increasingly more difficult.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jet Set Go is a time-management simulation game in which players are in charge of restaurants, travel shops, beachside stands, and more, and they fulfill customer needs in a timely and efficient manner. Gameplay is structured with a point-and-touch style and is accessible for nearly all players. However, it becomes more challenging as the game progresses, players get more customers, and the pace of service increases frenetically. As this game has a travel theme, players also get to set up shop in different parts of the world, from Canada to Asia. A handful of mini-games provide a distraction from the standard and occasionally repetitive time-management gameplay.

What's it about?

Jet Set Go puts players in the enviable position of a global resort mogul. They set up shops in all corners of the world, from North America to Asia. These establishments range from restaurants to travel agencies to beachside stands. This is a time management game so the primary goal is to serve guests as quickly and efficiently as possible. Players pass each level by ensuring enough guests are satisfied within the time limit while trying to avoid missing any customers. As they continue on the game, it gets more difficult as there are more customers and less time to organize.

Is it any good?


As far as time-management games go, JET SET GO rivals the competition. One of its best features is that players get to take the helm of varying establishments -- a restaurant, a travel agency, a beachside stand, etc. There are also mini-games to add more variety to what can be a stale and repetitive genre. These additional features make it possible to play through this game without ever getting bored. There are also different modes of gameplay, dozens of awards to earn, and the replayability of always going for the high score. It's a good choice for fans of the time-management genre.
