Solar Jetman: Hunt for the Golden Warpship is a space shooter/adventure with a weird twist to it. The main part is exploring hostile alien planets to collect enough pickups and fuel so you can make your way to the next planet. Before landing, occasionally there are shops that let you buy weapons and other upgrades for your small spaceship (called a Jetpod). Your spaceship is only equipped with thrusters and a gun at the beginnining of the game, but with the use of the tractor beam of the Jetpod, you can draw pickups towards your main ship to analyze them and receive possible upgrades. The main goal of each level is to bring enough fuel to the main ship to blast off again, but before you do, you must first collect a piece of a legendary spaceship (the Golden Warpship) which was broken into 12 pieces. When your spaceship is destroyed you are left along on the planet in just your spacesuit. Luckily, it’s also equipped with a gun and thrusters but it can't be upgraded besides with different bullets. As a last resort it can be rather handy, but one shot is lethal.
