Ecchi Jack is a lewd blackjack game about Toya's mission to find a girl with a mole to be accepted as new member of the Yakuza.

Gameplay
Play rounds of Blackjack to collect chips! There are three opponents to challenge. Each character has their own suite of unlockables. They include dialogue, nudity and sex scenes! To progress the game (or uh, your little friend), you'll need to bet and win chips. Ecchi Jack employs a simplified version of Blackjack. The goal of this card game is to aquire a hand with a greater value than your opponents. Both players start with two cards, and they may choose to "hit" and gain a card -- or they may "stand" and reveal their hand, once their opponent also stands. If your hand has a value of twenty-one, you win. However, it your hand ever exceeds twenty-one, you lose. It's up to you to measure risk versus reward!

Story
Toya Arai is trying to become a real yakuza. To prove his worth, he'll have to complete a mission assigment. He is instructed to locate a woman with mole on her cheek -- ass cheek. The Yakuza suspects that she is working at Casino XXX, an establisment known for it's pretty ladies that'll do anything for their patrons. That is, anything except for sex (because that's their motto, "No Sex!") Toya Arai will need to best the Casino's hostesses in a few games of Blackjack, and ask them remove their clothes. When all that's left of them are bare cheeks, only then will Toya find his woman!

Visuals
The titlescreen is alright, though a bit cluttered. From "Settings", you may adjust audio, display and language preferences. Censorship can be toggled from the "Settings" screen. Characters can be dressed (or undressed) from the "Gallery". Sex scenes can also be replayed, complete with dialogue. Unfortunately, the user-interface cannot be hidden, and the camera control is lacking. This game would benefit from a text "roll back" function; if you miss a dialogue, you'll have to restart the game. There also needs to be a level select screen, to allow players to revisit characters without resetting the game.

- The Goods -
There are three masturbatory sex-scenes to unlock, one for each character. The animations are short lived and lacking in variety. They are hardly worth the hours of frustration it takes to unlock them. However, they are still kind of hot! It's fun watching each character's reaction to nudity and sexual requests. The camera control is limited, making it difficult to secure. . . proper angles to see the action. Nipples and genitalia appear to be painted-on, rendering the nudity meh at best.

Verdict
Wait for quality of life updates -- I'd wait buy this game until said updates arrive. Ecchi Jack is a decent game marred by a lack of save functionality. I found it hard to stay motivated. Chips are necessary to progress, and obtaining them is a pain in the rear. Playing Ecchi Jack feels like a losing battle; I'd inch my way up to a modest chunk of chips, and then my opponent would casually draw a multiple, consecutive blackjacks. If your progress wasn't reset between losses, Ecchi Jack would be good game. For the time being, Ecchi Jack will remain a frustrating (though not necessarily bad) game.
