Jetpac version 1 – written on the Amiga using Amos. I just liked the Charlie Fotheringham Grunes sprite from Nodes so I stuck a jetpack on his back and hey presto, an up do date version of Jetpac. Never got finished!
Jetpac version 2 – started this one in the mid 90’s. It’s written on the premise that if you can get a pointer to the screen memory, and plot a pixel, then you can do anything. That’s how I started games programming on the PC and it’s horrible. Thus, canned.
Jetpac version 3 – (or Solar Jetpack) was a project I used to learn DirectX. Now DirectX is lovely and powerful, but for the amateur games programmer it’s a bit over the top and I got sick of learning it. I yearned for the care free days of Allegro :o)
So, Jetpac version 4 was started and finally I’ve managed to complete a Jetpack clone. It’s been written using the Allegro games programming library. I used said tool for Klass of 99 and Fairlight.
