Jett Rocket was released through Nintendo's WiiWare service on June 28, 2010 at a $10 price point. The game was developed and published by Shin' en Multimedia and is classified as a "3D Action Adventure" for 1 player.
The game received an ESRB rating of "Everyone" with "Mild Cartoon Violence" listed as the only content for gamers and parents to be aware of.
How many hours have U.S. Wii owners reported playing Jett Rocket with 686 days of game-play reported, and what is the first hilarious (to me anyway) search result when searching "Jett Rocket" on a famous online retailer? Let's take a look!
Jett Rocket has approximately 7,977 Wii owners that have reported game-play data using the Nintendo Channel, and the average play-time per day/session reported is 1 Hour 1 Minute.
The game's "professional" review score average is 69.90%, based on 10 reviews from GameRankings.com.
Jett Rocket's U.S. release has made Shin' en about $79,770 before taxes and profit sharing, just based on the number of players that have reported data and the game's $10 price point over the last 2 years.
While GameRankings.com does average together most of the larger sites, it often misses sites that have been around for a few years that review games regularly, and in this case, I would like to highlight one of those reviews.
WiiLoveIt.com has been around for many years now, and interestingly enough as I was piecing together this data report I went to the developer's site for the game. I was looking for assets and just browsing the site in general, when I stumbled upon the developer's "review" tab for the game, and the very first review they have listed is from WiiLoveIt.com, which was NOT included in GameRankings.com's average.

Jett Rocket has a free demo available on the Nintendo Shop Channel, and I highly recommend you to download it if you think you might be interested in the game even a little. I have played through the demo twice now, once last night, and found it very enjoyable both times. I have not purchased a WiiWare game in a while, but Jett Rocket's demo may have sold me on another one now.
If you have not seen anything from Jett Rocket, below is a video showing off some game-play:
Again, Jett Rocket's demo is still available on the Shop Channel as I mentioned above, and the demo plays well and the game looks really good considering the limits of WiiWare games. Considering the game's reported average play-time "Per person" is just over 7 hours, I think the asking price of only $10 is a steal from my time with the demo.
Now, some of you may be thinking, "Hey Coffee, what was the 'hilarious' item you found when searching for Jett Rocket?" Well, I searched Amazon.com because they have a few WiiWare games listed on the site for purchase and I was wondering if Jett Rocket was listed. When I typed in "Jett Rocket" in the search bar and hit "Enter" this is the first item that came up:
Yes, that is an inflatable Boba Fett jetpack. While Jett Rocket was not listed on Amazon, I thought the result was funny.
Have any of you purchased and played the full retail version of Jett Rocket, and if so, how many hours did it take you to complete it? If you completed it what did you think of the game, and did you finish it by finding all the secrets and hidden items in the game?
If you are interested in Jett Rocket, you can purchase it directly off the Wii's Shop Channel using a credit/debit card, or by using a Wii Points card seen below. Also, if you would like your very own super awesome Boba Fett jetpack, you can see it below as well:
