A re-imagined version of the game Jet Pac from Ultimate Play the Game from 1983.

This game was the first that I had on our Spectrum ZX48 computer back in the day and I played it hours and hours with my sister. Such fond memories.

All 16 levels and their respective enemies are now in working order and the game is fully released.

I hope you like the game in all it's simplicity ❤️
PS: When playing on browser press F11 for full screen.

As I am an unemployed small indie developer, I would appreciate a lot that if you feel like it, please donate a bit towards getting some newer hardware and software tools, so I can continue making more nice games.

OMG dude, I was going to do a quick remake of that game over the vacation, but this is great! (I'm old and played a ton of this back in the 80s)

Nice! So glad you liked our rendition of it as it was a first game I had on my Spectrum ZX48 back in the day as well as the first game I actually released.

Love the intro and the voice work!  It's a very good game, but (like someone else mentioned) I was doing well and then my rocket got destroyed.  Maybe make it more obvious how much damage it has incurred?

Glad that you like my game <3
On the top left there is a shield number that indicates the health of the shield from 10 to 0.

You can get more shield by collecting the radiation item.

Nice game, good fun, but: I´d love to have joypad control, plus I´m not a great fan of the fact that the rocket can get destroyed.

Thanks ^_^
Controller support is in the works next.

Collect the radiation block to replenish the shield and defend the bubble, makes the play a bit more varying since every enemy is acting differently

Good stuff, but in 2 of 2 tries the rocket was destroyed by the flying asteroids, so basically not much fun.


Maybe make rocket indestructible.

There is difficulty slider coming up.

The shield bubble takes 10 hits and can be recharged with atomic icons, also defending the rocket with lazers is highly recommended.
