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!

Please, please, please, please, PLEASE!

Stop with the 8 bit music ffs!

There's a reason why professional game developers dropped 8 and subsequently 16 bit sounds as soon as they could!

(Aimed at developers / game musicians in general)


LilDwarf responds:

lol wut? If I would have placed more modern music, it doesn't fit well with the general theme and look & feel of the game. It's a designer thing, you have to take into account the tone of the game when making one to choose the right music, and I felt these were the right choices ;)

Excellent and nostalgic game!!!

Playing this totally reminds of how much I played it in DK64, very fun, addictive and a great classic, I really appreciated the effort you put to bring back this old school classic, with cool and new stuff, a great revival of a old game indeed it resembles the original.

Retro-style FTW!!!
