Original Story:

As a new graduate of the Space Geology College, G MAN is sent on a mission to recover samples from the heart of the Sea of Dreams. Being new to a low gravity environment, he spent a lot of his time experimenting with flying and consequently missed the Moonbus back to the Shuttle, which had set down 900 meters away earlier in the day. Has G MAN realised his predicament too late? He has only 7 minutes to reach the Shuttle before it takes off! But all is not lost - he does have his trusty short-range Jet-pac, and if he uses fuel efficiently as well as picking up more along the way, he could  get there in time... it's all down to your ability now kid...

When I first saw that you had ported this old gem I almost freaked out!! This is one of my favorite Commodore games, and also the prequel to one of my favorite NES games; "Solar JetMan"


So I just wanted to tell you - thanks a bunch! Yet again, you have made my day a whole lot better! Thank you!

Thank you very much for the positive post. All of them also run on GB (DMG), the problem is that I play with the palette many times and that’s why I don’t use the original palette layout on the original machine, so many games may have different color settings and the game in DMG is unenjoyable.

You are putting out a lot of great games on GBC! Since Auto Zone also works on an original GB, do you know whether this is true for your other games as well? I prefer my good old DMG to play games on :)

Lovely, this brings back memories. I think this and Treasure Island are my favourites of your remakes!

Thanks! I really like that too! And the AutoZone!

The next rewritten game I'm working on now, will really bring back the good old days for You!

Icicle works!?

:) No! :)
