Description

At first glance, Jetpack 2 appears to be a simple mini-scale platform game, like Lode Runner with a physics engine. Don't be fooled. As you go deeper into your first mission, Jetpack 2 reveals more and more detailed and unique gameplay, and your environment becomes interactive and transformable!

Then you discover the level editor. The most popular feature of the original, the level editor is almost as much fun as the game, allowing you to easily create fantastic worlds and share them online.

With a retro feel and high res hand drawn pixel art, Jetpack 2 is simple but complex: easy enough for a child to play, yet challenging enough for hard core gamers.

History

The original 1993 classic game "Jetpack" was the #1 seller out of 50 titles for the original publisher (Software Creations). Since 1997, Jetpack has been downloaded over 1 million times from our website. The level editor was the most popular feature, and over 5,000 original Jetpack levels have been sent to us by fans around the world!

Jetpack 2 was developed publicly from the start, with the ups and downs of the entire development process chronicled on our blog, and using ideas and input from Jetpack fans.
