Unpredictable global events flooded Wall Street, but money makes the world go round. You're a jetpack operator in the sharing economy, and you make your living transporting important money-makers from floor to floor, office to office.
The first idea was to do something similar to H.E.R.O. (Activision, 1984), but the verlet mechanics soon made way for a Space Taxi (Muse Software, 1984) inspired game, where your objective is to transport businessmen from platform to platform in a Wall Street setting.
The idea is still good, in my opinion. I'd love to see it in action, and especially as multiplayer!
Maybe a future C64 title?
Here's a gif from the latest version showing fuel pod and businessmen.
The first prototype, with platform graphics lifted off Balloon Fight!
The Wall Street setting, a very stiff verlet, and an energy bug.
Picking up angry customers.
Uh-oh, too rough driving.
