Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Jetpac'

Rating:5 User: sirclive1

Good grief , what a bloody good game - Jetpac , written in less than 16k by the amazing Stamper Brothers at a time when most bedroom programmers were knocking out average arcade rip offs or text only adventures , they tore onto the spectrum scene with a full machine coded arcade style shoot em up which still looks decent today.

The aim of the game is to collect the pieces of your spaceship , then simply refuel it , dodge or shoot the alien hordes and (once your ships refuelled )blast off to the next planet (level) , it's cleverly designed , graphically excellent and very smooth , making it instantly addictive.

Its recently been updated and relaunched on xb live arcade but for me the original is the only way to play this fabulous game.
