well, think this is best from me, & seems I was wrong about it going back to level1 after level4
unless I was better at it a year+ ago....
think it may be too fast on beebEm414, might try the real deal (time permitting....)

Tried playing this on a Speccy. A lot easier!

I got to the space shuttle level relatively easy on the Spectrum.

One thing that makes the BBC version hard imo is the fact that the “aliens” spawn about half an inch left of the screen, which makes it very tricky getting fuel that is dropped there.

I've not played many games on the speccy but Jetpac is one of them and I think it's much better on the speccy. It's a simple game and it would have been better in mode 4 and monochrome or even mode 1. Mode 2/5 is too blocky and makes the ratio between the platforms/space/meteors all wrong. Gonna give it a go tonight but I've had a few whiskeys already so don't expect much from me!
