IGN gave the mobile phone version a score of 6.5 out of 10 and stated: "Developer Capybara Games has assembled a perfunctory movie-game that hits its marks -- swashbuckling, cannon fire, vine swinging -- but fails to engage the player at all. That the game play isn't compelling (a problem augmented by iffy control) is a shame, because with no fewer than 21 levels, this could have been a real value for mobile gamers."[42]
