It is not uncommon back in the day to discover new games that did not have names at the time of discovery. EGM, Gamefan and Gamepro all ran short articles that usually contained one single, blurry, picture and a sentence describing what was seen by the journalist. Today though, with the power of the Internet and the “clickbaiting” that goes on, it is not so easy to find a new game early in development. “Jets” for the Turbo Grafx-16/Super Grafx is just such a title. Originally unearthed by All Gamers, a French gaming website, “Jets” is still quite unknown. Suffice to say, it is a side scrolling shooter (exactly what these NEC systems were known for).
Currently only a few pics and a video are avaliable for “Jets”. Neither of which show much other than the basic gameplay of one level that has A LOT of repeating backgrounds (worse than your average Flintstones episode).
Fabrice Chanssez is the name of the team behind this new shooter. At the Retro-Gaming Connexion in France, “Jets” was shown to fans for the first time.
That is about all we know at the moment. We are working on getting contact with Team Fabrice Chanssez for further clarification on this title.
