SummaryOne of my all time favorite DOS games
The GoodGreat puzzle/action gameplay inspired by Lode Runner and Jumpman with other elements included that add originality to the game. Very easy to learn, while also providing a challenge. There are 100 levels in the standard game that increase in difficulty as you progress, and ensure a long and enjoyable experience. If a bit dated today, the graphics are still colorful and charming, and create that retro feel when you play the game. And best of all, this game comes with one of the best level editors to be featured in a game, which spawned a massive level designing community and cult following for Jetpack, making buying it worthwhile at the time, and adding infinite replayability. User made levels can still be found online today, though some of the fan sites are dead now.
The BadNo music, although that would have been too expensive for the game's budget. A lot of the levels are ridiculously hard and require several tries to master. The game overall hasn't aged as well in popularity as bigger cult classics like Lode Runner, and the sequel has been vaporware since the 90's. (though it's being made now)
