Jetpac

Moby ID: 14600

ZX Spectrum version

Great game, and good looking to (even though it’s on the Spectrum)

The Good
Jetpac fits the Spectrum. Most Spectrum games suffered from the attribute clash making graphics messy or monochrome. Jetpac looks great and doesn’t show much attribute problems. It’s an old game but still feels good. The control of the character is very tight and good. Many consider Jetpac to be one of the finest games on the Spectrum and I have to agree.

The Bad
I dislike that there isn’t an ending. Typical of most early 80’ies computer games you start at the first stage again when you have reached the end. But other than that it is hard for me to find any problems with the game.

The Bottom Line
Jetpac is a platformer and a shoot’em’up. It is also an adventure and probably one of the best games of the early 80’ies.
