Thanks for this is too 70's for me.

This is the worst game I've ever played on Newgrounds that wasn't blammed. And I've played hundreds.
Graphics suck, gameplay sucks, there are no added features, the HUD isn't explained, controls suck - you can't run away from planes and shoot them at the same time. Difficulty increases over time, slightly since the infantry can shoot you later on.

There are 12 levels. Sitting at the top of the screen works best, but some levels you may die too much from the planes, so try hovering above the ground but below the lowest plane.

After you beat the game you won't get the medal. BROKEN.

You can beat the whole game by staying at the top of the map :/

Simple enough to understand
Controls were not quite intuitive; I might not have even figured them all out yet.
Very repetitive: it feels more like a damage race than an actual game, and new content is sparse, if even existent.
But perhaps there is something I'm missing; some key element that will add to my understanding of this game as a work of art.

well, many aspects are very solid. you probably know that the game is not as advertised, even tho it DOES have some kick-ass cover art. Reminds me of old NES/Atari games where the cover would be like Conan riding a dragon with a half-naked babe while slaying a horde of monsters...then ya play it and of course it's just some blobs scooting around and bumping into each other, haha.

that being said, i really like this one. some parts were not so great, with MINOR aesthetic flaws (blurry game-over text). The worst part of this game is the insane difficulty. Can definitely see why you attached a medal to this one!
must say that it seems like it's possible to go the entire game without landing, as the jetpak recharges just as quickly as it drains.
some very cool pixel effects, here, also.

out of 10...

gfx - 8 (throwback to old-school industry practices)
sfx - N/A (i have no soundcard)
design - 6.5 (aesthetic flaws, limited functionality)
gameplay - 7 (fun, but no upgrades and insanely tough)

overall, this is a game that earns its charm subjectively. most people will probably go "wtf" and navigate away when they see the graphics. however, like all good games, there is an almost divine challenge in beating this one. looking forward to giving that a serious go.
