No-Action Jackson is an AGS adventure game made by Britton “Cerebrit” O’Toole in 2004. It was made in a size of 5.95 MB.
Jackson is a boy who likes role playing games, and wants to gather his friends to play with him. However, his mother doesn’t let him go out because his grandfather came to them and has to socialize with him. Jackson escapes from the house to look for his friends (who were involved in other activities) to begin their game.
Most of the reviews on the game were favourable, where the graphics gained most of the acclaim as a reminiscent of old LucasArts games like Day of the Tentacle. Gameplay and puzzles also received acclaim.
