2. Jetpac (1983)
Enter the Game Gallery and highlight Jetpac. Scroll over to and enter the Options menu. Switch to the Game Options screen, and, under the Cheats menu, switch Infinite Lives on. This will not void any achievements. Start the game by selecting “Play”, and you will unlock:
Jetpac is a pretty straight-forward game. First, you will be required to assemble your rocket, and then you will be required to fill it with fuel so you can blast off to the next level. Your first ship will last for 4 levels, and then you will have to construct another. There are four ships to construct in total before the game repeats itself. , , and control your jetpac while fires your weapon. To pick up fuel canisters and ship parts, simply fly into them. To add them to your ship, simply fly over the ship itself.
Each level will look exactly the same. The ship will be in the bottom-right, and you’ll have three platforms above. For the majority of the levels, standing on the central platform is the easiest way to proceed, though some enemies (such as the flying saucers) will require you to be constantly moving to avoid them.
You can both shoot and walk off the side of the screen – reappearing on the other side. This can be very useful while shooting as you can effectively deny most enemies access to the upper section. Anyway, to get the second of the Jetpac achievements, you must full construct all 4 ships and complete 16 levels. If you are using Infinite Lives, this will be no problem at all. If you’re doing it legitimately, you’re in for a very, very tough time.
During the levels, gems, gold bars and other valuables will drop from the ceiling. Picking these up gives you a decent amount of points, though nothing spectacular.
Once you have cycled through all four ships and back to the first (you may need to pause the game to trigger it), you will unlock:
Jetpac: Blast off from every single level over time.
Now it’s just a matter of playing over and over again until you unlock the rest of the achievements.
Once you have dropped a total of 250 fuel canisters on to your rocket ships (does not need to be in one go), you will unlock:
Pac it Away
Jetpac: Add 250 fuel pods to rockets over time.
Once you have destroyed a total of 1500 enemies (does not need to be in one go), you will unlock:
Jetpac: Defeat 1500 enemies over time.
Finally, once you have gained a total of 250,000 points (does not need to be in one go), you will unlock:
Now it’s time to move on to the Snapshots. Note: there are no cheats available for Snapshots. There are five Snapshots in total. The first requires you to destroy 10 bubble enemies in 30 seconds without dying. Complete this Snapshot to unlock:
Complete a Jetpac snapshot.
The second Snapshot requires you to collect and deliver 3 fuel canisters as quickly as possible without dying.
The third Snapshot requires you to assemble your rocket ship. Fill it with fuel and blast off within 60 seconds – and without dying.
The fourth Snapshot requires you to complete 5 full wraparounds (fly out one side of the screen, fly all the way across the screen and back out the same side again) without dying. The best way to do this is to zigzag up and down while flying on one direction – continuously firing your laser.
The fifth Snapshot requires you to fuel your rocket ship and blast off without being able to use your gun – and without dying. The easiest way to complete this is to stay on the ground as much as possible. It’s much easier to avoid the enemies along the floor as their bounces are more predictable. The only danger here is when some of them decide to fly straight along the floor. Either way, this is the most difficult of the Snapshots and can be very frustrating.
There is no easy way to complete this one. It’s just simply a matter of repetition and hoping for a bit of luck. Once you have successfully completed all 5 Snapshots, you will unlock:
That is all of the achievements and Stamps unlocked for this game. Congrats!
