Aim of the game

Jetman has crashed onto the moon with only an old Moonglider at his disposal, plus an odd assortment of largely unexplained equipment and hostile aliens for company. Working out what you're supposed to do is your first task...

Game play

Jetman can pick up objects and carry them himself, or drop them on the Moonglider for transport. However, it won't cross craters in the ground - these must be crossed by using bridging units carried on the side of the vehicle. Whenever an alien hits Jetman, it creates another crater. The basic aim is to destroy the alien bases (a monumentally difficult task!) but there may be other hidden objectives for you to discover.


"Highly recommended".

Another famous Ultimate classic, although a rather difficult game to play. It was also virtually the first game to have digitised sound (via the Currah Microspeech). Look out for the trailer! ;-)
