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!

Mostly enjoyable

This was a fairly interesting game to play because the gameplay was quite abstract. While the artwork wasn't that good, it was still entertaining to see this guy just fly around everywhere. The music and graphics remind you of classic old games. Granted, I don't think I've ever even played old games like that, just ones similar to it here on this website. The best thing is how the lasers go from one side of the screen to another.

I am glad you do not have to collect the ship parts for every level. I was a bit confused when I had done that and still hadn't completed the first level. It's great how you have good mobility and control over yourself. It could probably use some better coloring effects, because it looks a tad sloppy. It's still worth checking out.

Haha what an unexpected surprice I got :D

I clicked a random game, and when I heard the music I couldn't help but smile.. My best friend IRL made the main theme :D
The game seemed great as well, although I couldn't play it for long as my keyboard spassed out all the time :/, so I guess I'll try it on another computer some time.

New Goal: Beat the High Score!

Shattered the topscore!

Great game!

I remember playing this on DK64!

A little buggy with certain enemies occasionally getting stuck in the floor (don't know if thats part of the original code or what) .... but other than that... it was great!

Thanks for the upload! 10/10
Great Job!

See if you can beat my score!! over 1 million!

Wow congratulations! Must have taken you a while ;) I admit it was unexpected that the enemies got stuck on the floor, but I left that in since I thought it was funny XD Thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

Nostalgiagasm

Love this game Dwarf, i must say i played for about an hour and didnt want to stop.
As for RickyTheFish....i don't think he realized the style of game play. As well as the amount you could actually do on an atari xD. In any case i love what you have done with this game the only down point i could see was the lag but even that might just be my computer soooo 10/10
