Game Info How To Play Downloads Comments


JetLag 2003 is part of a fine tradition that started circa 1990 in 6809E assembly, was redone in BASICA/GW-BASIC for IBM PCs, redone again in Turbo Pascal 6.0 for DOS, redone yet again for QBASIC, again for Borland Pascal 7.0, then for VC++ 4.0 with DirectX 5.0 for Windows 9X.

JetLag 2003 was written in VC++.NET to use SDL 1.2, and so indirectly uses DirectX. It continues the fine tradition of using a DOS font, which it has always done since its move to GW-BASIC.

Not responsible for failed classes, lost jobs, divorces, etc caused as a result of becoming addicted to JetLag.

System Requirements

This game has only been tested on Windows XP with DirectX 9.0 and SDL version 1.2. It may or may not run on other systems.
