Hi everyone! I got inspired to remake another classic after some suggestions on my previous game, DK Arcade. This was a fun project that took me roughly a month of hard work to pull off. It turned out much bigger than I anticipated since in the middle of production, I got the idea of creating a new game and changing a bunch of things to the original.

This game features 2 games within: Jetpac and Rocket!
Jetpac is the original version some may remember with many features and changes made by myself. Among the most notable changes, are Powerups and Bombs! Collect them as they fall to gain new powers and unlock secrets!

Rocket is a new game I implemented where you navigate your Rocket across space, collecting Items and avoiding the enemies for as long as you can! You get to unlock new rockets depending on how far you get on Jetpac. The collectable items are colored in Yellow, and the enemies are colored in Red. You must re-fuel your rocket with fuel packs along the way or you'll find yourself with an unresponsive rocket navigating through space!

I'm happy I managed to finish this pretty quickly and submit new things to NG, I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I enjoyed making it!

WTF with a button called NEWGROUNDS (in the game). It opens a lot of tabs in my browser. Pretty scry tho. Plz fix this. Also game is cool.

Nostalgia fun trip its like a time machine sending me back 10 years to get the medals for dk64 again even with the power ups it still feels like a taste of retro this just makes me want to watch an lp of dk64 or find an n64 and a copy of the game only thing is and this might just be bad memory but i don't recall it having a sound track nice choice if its new and thanks for this awesome remake i knew i had to play it the moment i saw the thumbnail as i've been trying to recall the name for years as i loved this game but i recognized it the moment i saw it thanks yet again

Thanks for the review! Yes, I added some new features, like the powerups and the music, to change things abit from the original game. I'm very glad you liked it, hope to make more in the future


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Nice remake, only played the game before on DK64 but it is similar for me which is good, it is more difficult however, but that is good imo. An easy mode might be good for people like me who fail though. Over all a very fun version of the game and nice to play it.

This is so creative! I haven't played the original version, but I can tell that it is cool. The sound effects are so funny! The explosions sound like farts! There is a little problem which makes it a bigger problem. The character and the menu selection get controlled by itself and moves it to places where I don't want to, well, it makes it bigger because I end up losing for that. Also, it looks imposible to beat Level 8. The enemies just follow you and when they are above your head you can't avoid it and you end up loosing. Could you please tell me how to avoid the enemies on Level 8? The game represents your effort on it! Keep up the good work and have a nice day.
