Jet Pac

 

When I first got my 48k+ Spectrum back in 1985 I spent the first two months playing a brace of 16k games – Mervyn Estcourt’s Deathchase and this fine effort from Ultimate. Jet Pac may not look like much these days, but the basic mechanic is still as enticing as ever.

Playing the Lunar Jetman (in his first appearance), your task was to assemble your errant rocket before then gathering enough fuel to blast off. Standing (or rather flying) in your way were various colourful and bizarre nasties which could all be shot from the sky with Jetman’s powerful laser. Despite being only one screen, Jet Pac was a colourful, addictive and polished game that sold a truckload back in the 80’s.
