Description

Jet Ion GP is set in the year 2040, a time when petrol prices have risen as oil-wells start to run dry. The future of mankind lies in the new technology of Cold Fusion but this is being suppressed by the oil companies who are more powerful than governments. Pilot Jet Jevons leads a rebel faction who learn of this and they fight to give the power back to the governments. He does this by competing in high powered races around the world.

Jet Ion GP is a futuristic racing game for one or two players in which the player(s) pilot high speed aircraft around three dimensional courses avoiding obstacles and dodging enemy fire. All the courses are marked by a ribbon in the sky which the pilot needs to follow because that ribbon is what the craft draw power from. Straying too far from the ribbon means they lose speed, energy, and probably the race.

Besides Jet Jevons there are other pilots and teams in the race and the player can fly as any of them. The game can be played in four modes:
  • The Grand Prix mode where the player must qualify for and then compete in a series of five races. Grand Prix' are competed in in five levels of difficulty, Standard, Expert B, Expert A, Master B, Master A, and Master S but only Standard is available at the beginning of the game and as the player progresses additional courses and craft are unlocked. As the player progresses through the race calendar additional vehicles become available, the courses become harder, and the races become longer.

  • Single Spot where the player qualifies for and competes in a single race.

  • Time Attack where the player attempts to beat the track record for a course.

  • VS which is the two player head-to-head game.
