Back in ye olde days (or: your first Jetpack experience)
Posted 01 September 2012 - 05:41 PM
Back when I was younger, I could mostly only play shareware games. Sure before that I had full releases on 3'5" floppy disks, but most of my game experience game from shareware. The same went for Jetpack. I believe it was one of those CD-ROMs that contained all these DOS games, which came with a certain magazine. Unfortunately it was only shareware, meaning a lot of levels probably weren't there (I do mean probably, because I never got past the first few levels), and the level editor could only store one level. Of course, I found a way around it (simply rename the old level's file), so there's that.

Haha I used to do that.

Later I got the full version from somewhere, I was always super careful to use fuel as little as possible and I never even got past the first level but then my cousin just beat it on his first try as he was actually using his jetpack, and both of us got pretty far later on. I also took a long time to find out what the phaser was supposed to do.

Seems like everyone did that. We also just had the shareware version back then. I was a very little kid when I first played it and it was a lot of fun, and it still is today! Still have many levels from back then.
Haha I used to do that.

Didn't understand a thing, since I hadn't learned English yet (I'm German), but still found ways to figure most of the things about it by myself.

I didn't get too far. After they figured out that I was too young and didn't really have the time to figure it out, they opened a paint program and I made one of those sweet things where you make the shapes all over and fill them with different colors.

Ah, I see. Sure, when I get home unless someone else does first.
I can play the Jetpack 1 from the files folder here in the Community. I just saw a few of those Megahits 80, games, and wanted to go back for memory sake. Although it would be impossible to find that disc now..
That is awesome that 3 of them are AdeptSoftware.

We germans are infamous for dubbing everything!
I'm surprised you bothered with any translations.
