Sky Jinks - Cartridge

DescriptionSubmit Description
Sky Jinks was programmed by Bob Whitehead, best known for programming games such as Chopper Command, Private Eye, and Stampede. You are in a pylon race in your P41 plane, trying to complete the course in the shortest time possible, so you can earn the coveted Thompson Trophy. You must pass red pylons on the right and blue ones on the left, with a three second penalty given for each missed pylon. There are five game variations, each one getting more and advanced, with the fifth one generating a new course every time one plays. Players who completed Game 1 in 37 seconds or less without missing any pylons were eligible to receive an Activision Sky Stars patch by sending a photograph of their achievement to Activision.
