The objective of the game is to rebuild your crashed space ship, collect fuel cells, and takeoff for the next level, you'll need to do this several times before the final journey home. You will need to collect each component individually, and in the correct order, fly over the space ship to make the component fall into place. Collecting the bonus items floating in space will give you extra points. Avoid the aliens and objects during your quest, or blast them with your laser.

Jetpak is an enhanced remake developed with DOS by Ian Price in 2001, an updated version was also developed with PLayBasic and released in 2006. The original DOS version was ported to Fenix for Dreamcast by Brian Deuel (aka Atari) of Fuseki Games with a final revision of the port in 2016.

This release comprises of Jetpak along with DCEvolution's version of Chui's Fenix SDL Loader (FSL) from November 2004, edited to exclude the Fenix splash screen and jingle, so the game loads directly.

Within the original readme file, Ian Price noted that he was not 100% happy with the sound of the DOS remake, the WAV sound effects for Jetpak have been replaced in this release. Due to the alterations made to the game, a download for the original version ported by Brian Deuel has been made available, the download also includes DCEvo's version of the FSL.
