After JETMAN's poorly assembled multi-stage rocket started to disintegrate in warp space, he manages to crash land on a strange undiscovered world, inhabited by hundreds of restless aliens intent on the total destruction of the planet Earth.

Desperate to regain the lost minerals, the aliens initialise their ancient attack mechanisms. All around, huge missile installations erupt from deep within the bounds of the planet, surrounded by their own strategic defence stations. Their huge linoleum shelled missiles glisten in the distant sunlight as the multitronic warheads auto-arm and poise for attack.

With no hope of help from the nearby and unaware Earth, JETMAN has to destroy all of the installations single - handed before the imminent destruction of his home planet.Using only his Hyperglide Moon Rover to carry the strange equipment and supply Bridging units, with any other equipment he can find to complete his mission.

My Memories Playing Lunar Jetman

Playing games on my ZX Spectrum meant that I had to hijack the family TV in the living room and set up my ZX Spectrum and load games by cassette.

Later, I managed to get a portable black and white TV in my bedroom which wasnt quite as good as playing on the family TV but had the benefit of allowing me to play anytime.
