-Original game by the amazing Ultimate/Rare
-A couple of ideas and the main inspiration to make this game thanks to Asobitech and their amazing Super Jetpak DX
I love it - although I used to play the chunkier VIC-20 version. I don't recall there being a timer but it is a welcome addition.
Really great conversion. I forsee myself spending quite a long time playing this...
The game is very good and the music is legendary, @CoffeeBat !
I noticed that if you are standing on top of the rocket before the last piece hits, the rocket's top part stays white but launches anyways.
If you want to add some variety, you could have a 2nd level where the current rocketship is shrunk down visibly and shoots down a mess of incoming asteroids or something before picking another planet to recover pieces on.
That is up to you, though. The game is great the way it is. Gold star work.
