All of Ultimate's games are excellent; with smooth, colourful and fast moving graphics; good sound effects; and they are very addictive.

Jetpac's graphics and sound effects are basic, even by Spectrum standards, with colour clash attribute in full flow and spot effects limited to burps and belches as aliens meet their maker. The game nonetheless holds the player's attention purely through its simple gameplay mechanics and a faultless presentation from Ultimate. With the clearance of each level seeing the player's score leap forward thousands of points, one more go is never enough on the quest to better one's high score.

Jetpac is a very playable, addictive and original arcade type game. The graphics are superb, but the sound effects bore a striking similarity to a pan of frying eggs and bacon.

Good graphics, with many small touches that put this program well ahead of the pack. Movement is easy to control, and the degree of difficulty such as to make this an entertaining and addictive game.
