Simple and funny platformer
I bought Jetpack way back in the 90's. It's a simple platformer where every object is the same size and levels take up exactly one screen. However it has a lot of content. The protagonist has to gather all green crystals and get to the big exit door. This is complicated by the multitude of death traps and creatures out to get you. You can run, fly (if you have picked up rocket fuel) and dig through soft ground using your disruptor gun.There are a great number of map levels and a very good level editor. That together with a very large collection of map elements makes for a lot of replay value. The graphics are simple but clear. There is no music and barely decent sound. There is great variation in the level design.This game is definitely worth playing.
