Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Jetpac'

Rating:5 User: Zagrebo

What to say about this game that hasn't been said before? Published in 1983 at a time when most home computer 'action' titles were shameless rip-offs of popular arcade machines (with titles like "Muncher-Man" and "Centipod") Ulimate released this original shooter which not only matched popular arcade machines for looks and speed but beat many of them in gameplay. Even now, over a quarter of a century since its release, this game remains thoroughly playable and incredibly addictive. Not just a Spectrum great but one of the best videogames in the history of the medium on any platform.
