The Jetman series of games started out on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum with Jetpac, Ultimate Play The Game's first ever game. Jetpac's popularity further spawned two more sequels, with Solar Jetman: Hunt for the Golden Warpship not releasing on the ZX Spectrum, but instead on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Solar Jetman was the first game in the Jetman series to be released after Ultimate became Rare. An enhanced remake of Jetpac, entitled Jetpac Refuelled was released on the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade in March 2007, with the original version of the game being included in it. The series stars Jetman, the astronaut exploring multiple planets in his travels.
