"JetPac" (Ultimate) Print This PageUnavailableBookmark PageUnavailable

Description:
Another early game in the speccy archive and by no means the worse off for it.

Jet Pac may have been limited in its general gameplay, however it still captivated many early speccy fans and lasted well beyond the early years of the Spectrum. The idea is a simple yet tested one, a kind of shoort-em-up with the added task of assembling your rocket and re-fueling it to clear each stage.

Nicely crafted sprites -yet limited- but the action is smooth and has good solid feel to the game and grew in polularity. So much so that he had a comic strip named after him in the speccy magazine at the time; Crash! Jet Pac (or Jetman) went on to appear in the Lunar Jetman Sequel, however it's difficulty.

Object:

Your main objective is to assembled your rocket from the 3 available pieces on each level and fill it with enough fuel in order to jump in and take off, thus completing the level or stage.

Overall

While you are doing this however, you must avoid the many enemies that populate each stage. Not only do they change in appearance, but also in their movements- such as bouncing or eratic flight paths.

Criticism:
A well written young edition for the speccy in 1983. It's basic design did not hinder its addictive capability and the addition of new rocket every several levels made a nice change as you progressed through the different stages.

Even today i'm still building rockets!
