Jones is stuck in a loop, a game loop. Jones continues down a looping path resulting in his death, fortunately the player has access to the code that will set Jones on the correct path.
In Loop Jones the player edits game code in an interpreter to change the path Jones will take.
The gameplay is very evocative of older games like ‘The Incredible Machine’ in which through trial and error, and then knowledge, the player is able to solve puzzles with an eventual understanding of basic game code and programming techniques.
