Summary

Wow, I remember this game!...

The Good

Wow...talk about nostalgia!

"Jetpack" was one of my favorite old games years ago. I, mean, sure, everything fit on one screen, there was PC speaker sounds, and the graphics were tiny pixels, but this really all added to the games simple charm. Somehow, the game had a really fun and simple feel with some variety, such as the many humorous way your weird little character died and all the power-ups appearing out of nowhere. It really stands out from other games. I remember that I used to find the official levels FAR too hard...

But I'm almost leaving out one of the best parts of the game! Jetpack's level editor was very cool and fun, simple enough that an idiot could figure it out in minutes. I SO remember spending HOURS making my own levels for this game!...

The Bad

After awhile, Jetpack's simpleness DOES get a little tiring. The only really annoying thing though is that even with your brick-burning phaser, you can't even really kill any of those robots or their fellow monsters...just stun them with one of the power-ups.

The Bottom Line

One of the better DOS games...really fun and easy to pick up on! Not to mention, you can download it FREE from Adept Software.com!
