Jetpack (1993)

Post by candyjack » Thu Aug 20, 2015 14:44

I have decided that this forum needs a thread dedicated to the classic platformer Jetpack. It's a game of puzzles and labyrinths, partly inspired by Lode Runner, but way more advanced in terms of gameplay. And the best part is that it comes with a powerful, built-in level editor. Here is a speedrun of the game, which you can view to get an idea of the gameplay (i.e. feel a strong craving to play the game yourself).

You can download the game from the official site. I've also made a level pack.

So yeah, talk about this game or something. Perhaps post your own levels.

Been there, played that. Jetpack was a large part of my shareware filled childhood.

I seem to recall making some levels some time ago, time to boot the old NEC lappy with Windows 95 I guess...

I think we've actually had a few thread about this game. Some nice TASs on youtube.

I'm glad to see that there's an interest in the game. I'd like to present a level pack into which I've been putting some actual effort. The previous levels were garbage and have been removed. This pack consists of seven levels. Not for beginners.

Some notes. The levels are ordered by how hard it is to beat them given that you know how to. I recommend that you try them in order, but if you get stuck, feel free to skip them. Next to that, I'd like to ask you not to pick up any randomly appearing items, because that negates the whole puzzle aspect; they're not meant to be played that way.

Without further ado...
