You like jetpacks?


You also like shooting stuff up?


There's no guarantee this is the game for you, but this is something!


Jetpackin' Heat is unique arcade shooter than puts your dexterity to the test as you move around, dodge and defeat enemies and blast them into hell! Avoid obstacles, obliterate dangerous robots, and collect lives and money as you try to survive as long as possible before you inevitably lose!


Don't chicken out and try to hide in the margins, we don't play that way, we want you to get out there and shoot and kill and die and stuff!


You like high scores? Good, because we've got them, compete against yourself and see if you can do better than you can!


Shooting, jetpacks, death, robots, giant wall spikes, what else would you want in a weird HTML5 port?


If you want some of the other ports of the game, we've got you covered:

I know this is still an alpha and all but I'm still going to give my two cents.

The momentum feels kind of unnatural. It's hard to explain, but it feels like instead of conserving the movement the jetpack is trying to hit the brakes but it still takes a bit to fully stop. Like an old car, know what I mean? Now, if this is intentional then by all means keep it, this is your game, not mine.

Other than that I see that you have the core gameplay down, so all I can suggest is maybe more stages or enemies or something (?). I dunno, I suppose you already have those in mind. Either way, this looks promising. Keep at it!

Heyo, thanks for your opinion!
As you said, this is still an alpha, and things are being continuously improved. As for the movement, I can see where it feels a bit too slippery when letting go and stopping, so I can try to work on making it a bit more natural. Hoping you stick around for the next major update, there's going to be plenty in store.

Cheers!

Not the worst game on this website. It's just too easy and gets boring easily, but I can see how some people might like it. Perhaps making it so you can't get any health upgrades would make it better, it's add some difficulty.

CaffeinatedGameworks responds:

Hey, thanks for the feedback, man! I understand the game is rather barebones in its current state, I'm not going to lie about that, but I wanted to show off what I have so far for any public opinions, so this is pretty important to me. I'm currently working on the next update to the game, so hopefully I can make the game less monotonous and a better experience for all.

Cheers!
