Two things:

  1. It says “Don’t crash into the white barrier”, then promptly serves up a purple barrier instead. Oh Cassette 50, you big Joker you.
  2. Jet Mobile? Looks more like some sort of Alien. Or one of those crappy three wheeled cars. Do they still make three wheeled cars? I hope so.

Hey! Hey you! Come over here and look at my Jet mobile. It’s so fast. It’s better than your car. Watch me drive it. Watch. Just watch.
Fuck, I’ve crashed into an exclamation mark. Balls.

Alright, you’ve got me Cassette 50…where’s the fucking Jet Mobile? All I see is a square flapping about. Surely you can’t be telling me that that is the jet Mobile? Oh, you are? Well. That’s a load of balls.

Jet mobile. Jet. Mobile.

It’s not a fucking jet mobile. It’s snake.

Get out of my sight Cassette 50, go and think about what you’ve done.

Jet Mobile (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 47)

Look at my Jet Mobile. Look at it go. I can drive it through these gate like things, and even if I drive over them it doesn’t matter because my jet mobile is even harder than Pele after he’s taken his erectile dysfunction tablets.

At first there seems to be very little point to driving my Jet Mobile around other than to show off and try and go through those markers, though eventually Cassette 50 decides to put you out of your misery and show you some kind of score:

Oh how I love you Jet Mobile, my best car ever.

Jet Mobile (Acorn Electron Cassette 50 Game 47)

This was the one game I was most excited about revisiting. I remember this being the most enjoyable game on Cassette 50. I know, given the quality of games we have seen so far, that it’s a bit like saying someone is the best Justin Lee Collins impersonator, but stay with me.

The premise was something to do with driving a jet powered milk float around, and delivering all the milk quickly.  Let’s get this started up, I can’t wait to play…
