THANKS FOR THE FRONT PAGE, NEWGROUNDS! I LOVE YOU UTTERLY AND COMPLETELY!

Update 4-17: Fixed a bug where a getting to the ninth tree caused the game to freeze/crash. This coincidentally happened at around 30 or so cheeses, so sorry to people who thought they had a good shot at the 40 cheese cheevo, only to have it stolen from there grasp!

EPIPHANY: I'm not done with this game. It's not where I want it to be quality-wise, and there's so much to add, so it's now my mission to add something to this game every day for as long as I can. I don't care if it only has 2000 views and didn't make the front page, it's gonna be the best damn game I ever make!

Update 2-9: Experimental Gamepad Support (tested on Mac OS X with 360 controller), and experimental replays. Here, "experimental" means possibly probably buggy. I also started adding touch controls, but those will require a little more time and effort :)

Update 2-2: And on the ninth day, Dan actually rested: so JPJ's been tearing it up for a while now, it's off the front page, and it's up to 2 rows of medals. I think it's time to slow the updates a bit. Not sure what the new rate will be, but no slower than weekly so check back at least once a week!
The main reason for this is that features and medals than can be coded in a day are getting harder to come by, plus the bigger, cooler, substantial features I want to add that might take more time.
So sorry to disappoint, but fear not! There will be more Jet Pack Jesus!

Update 2-1: 1 more medal (16), and a new Character to play as!
Update 1-31: And on the seventh day, Dan rested, by only adding 1 medal (15). I promise a more substantial addition tomorrow!
Update 1-30: 1 New Medal! (14) Scroll Improvements!
Update 1-29: 3 More Medals! (13) Better Medal Popup! Fixed Character Select!
Update 1-28: 2 More Medals! (10 Total) You can now also sync your medals to Newgrounds, in case you get one in the game, but not on the site for some reason.
Update 1-27: In-game Cheevo Menu + Title Screen Instructions (man, that was long overdue!)
Update 1-26: 3 More Medals! (8 Total)
Update 1-25: 3 New Medals! (5 Total)

UPDATE: Some asshole game developer commented out the code that submits medals to NG, which is why that's been broken. It's been added back in, so you can get medals again! You'll unfortunately need to achieve them again, but that just means you get to play more :)

What Would Jesus Do... WITH A JETPACK?!?

Controls:
SPACE - GO TO NEXT MENU
LEFT, RIGHT, UP - JETPACK
M - MUTE
P - PAUSE

How to Play:
Get the cheese. Miss the bricks.

SPECIAL NOTE: UNTIL APPLE GETS ITS SHIT TOGETHER RE: SAFARI, DON'T PLAY ON THAT BROWSER, OR THE GAME WILL BE BLURRY! WHICH IS SORT OF PROBLEMATIC ON PIXEL DAY, RIGHT?

Commentary:
This game. This ******* game. This has been a game I've been working on for almost two years now. Wait a minute, this sounds familiar...

Anyway, I started making this is AS3 in Spring 2014, before switching to Haxe. That took forever, and I decided to take a break at the end of 2014. I started anew in December 2015, rewriting the game to use Javascript and WebGL, and the game is much better for it (although it may be buggy across browsers and devices).

This game was developed and tested in Firefox, so if you have the latest version of that, it should work like a charm. If you're on the latest version of any other browser, I hope it will work, although there may be some weird quirks, so bust out FF for the best experience!

If people like it, I'll keep adding to it, cause I really want to! Also, let me know when you find bugs! Reloading might be the best solution, honestly!

PS. Makes it to Pixel Day with seconds to spare! Eat it, bitches!

DBuck-Eye responds:

Uh oh! You must have been betrayed and played Jet Pack Judas instead! Don't worry, for Jet Pack Jesus will not betray you!

Seriously though, you aren't the first person to have this issue, so I'll work on a fix!


Well, at least I don't have to wait for three days for somebody to move a rock before spawning again.

Ha! :)


This totally made my day, it works perfectly fine for me and it's good old-Newgrounds style fun, simple, irreverent but still somehow deep. Tenouttaten for me

Btw, you can revive if you happen to touch cheese after hitting a brick, now to get that medal...


DBuck-Eye responds:

Glad you liked it! :)


hm... getting hit by a brick kills jesus and let's me play next day. so how em i supposed to get hit by 5 bricks at a single day? 5 starts for offending religous crazy people (y)


DBuck-Eye responds:

See the above review! Jesus didn't die just once :) (also if a brick hits you while you're falling to the ground, it counts)


I'm an athiest, but this doesn't offend me. I find it hilarious. keep up the good work, man.

DBuck-Eye responds:

Atheists weren't really the group I thought would be offended, but that's good to hear! Thanks, man! :)
