Solar Jetman is a seldom-discussed game, but it’s a real gem. I would rank it in the top 5 NES games for sheer quality gameplay and fun. It’s hardly heard of any more these days because most of the cartridges were actually destroyed when everyone who owned one SMASHED IT in FRUSTRATION because this JUNK EGG-LOOKING UNPILOTABLE SHIP would not just SLOW DOWN DON’T HIT EVERY WALL YOU DON’T HAVE TO HIT EVERY WALL IN THE PLANET JUST LET ME TURN TO SHOOT THESE TURRET GUYS REAL QUICK STOP IT STOP IT BUTTS! BUTTS! BUTTS!

It was a hard game.
