Magic Jet 2

Magic Jet 2


“As if these attack of the monster are not strong, in contaminating ceaseless expansion, all countries ought to organize immediately taking this piece of thing seriously.” Wow. This game has some awesome Engrish going on. Magic Jet 2 is a shmup that has your characters flying through the air without the assistance of wings, machinery, or hot air. I guess that’s why it’s called magic 🙂 At the beginning of each level you are given the choice of “Body Mode” or “Advance Mode”. Basically all this means is you’ll be firing directly from your body in an arc or from some objects that fly behind you in a straight line. I prefer Body Mode, but you’ll want to play around a little to see what works best for you.

The most common complaint is that the characters are very slow. After having tried out each character I can safely say this is a valid issue. They all are supposed to have different speeds but each character feels like they are flying at exactly the same speed. Ah well. The one nice thing I found about this game is that the controls are completely customizable. You can’t set your fire button to the mouse, but beyond that you really can’t ask for much more. The movements are pretty responsive, but you’ll need to anticipate your moves a bit as you can’t afford to be doing a lot of bullet dodging with the speed your character flies at.

The developer did really great work with the graphics. There are little details all over the place in the background and even though you won’t be able to spare much time to look at them you may want to pause the game to take a moment to appreciate the scenery. The enemies and your characters both are very well-drawn and there are little details like parts of your clothing that ripple in the wind or your hair being blown back away from your face that really make this game look great.

Now if you go into the options menu you’ll be able to mute the game, sound effects and all. You will, however, be missing out on some really great music. The sound effects certainly aren’t much to miss out on as they lack any sort of “oomph” but that’s okay. At least there are sound effects, right?

10/10. Absolutely loved the graphics on this game.

7/10. Speed doesn’t matter in your character, or so it seems. Otherwise fun.

8/10. The music is great but the sound effects leave something to be desired.

8/10. Your standard shooter.

9/10. The controls are almost completely customizable, but you can’t use the mouse.

Hearkens back to the days of the classic shooter. 8/10
