The video game starts with Jetman looking to assemble his rocket (which comes in kit form), the three separate parts that are scattered around the screen. When he get the rocket fully put together he needs fill it with fuel before taking off to the next planet (where the procedure is broadly repeated). Along the way Jetman has to defend himself from the planet's aliens that are preventing him from completing his task. In addition he also get to collect valuable resources which occasionally fall from the sky for bonus points. After the first level, the rocket stays assembled and just requires refuelling. Jetman can use the rocket to travel to various other planets to collect precious gems or gold. But before taking off again Jetman has to locate fuel to refill the rocket. However, every five levels, the rocket is changed and the replacement has to be built before it can be fuelled for take off. Each new model has a new design with a higher number written on it, although the gameplay is unchanged. The single game screen is a horizontal wrap around and consists of three platforms on which Jetman can stand. The various enemies will change on every level (cycling back to the first after eight levels) and each alien has a different pattern of movement which means they can be dealt with in a different manner. For instance, the "dart" enemy tends to hover in a vertical column on the left-hand side of the screen until it fires across the screen whereas, the "flying saucer" aliens will follow Jetman around and so require a different strategy.
