Anything like Solar Jetman on the NES?

I am new to iphone gaming and have a bunch of the recommended stuff, but are there any games on iphone similar to Solar Jetman?

I love the adventuring aspects of the original so some of the "gravity-based" games I have seen seem to lack depth (as far as progression and character improvement).

Any help is appreciated

Get this quick while it's free: http://appshopper.com/games/dropship

It's almost the exact same thing... but with 3D effects.

Thanks for the heads-up.

It looks like the campaign mode does not quite have what I liked about Solar Jetman (economy and upgrading), but I appreciate the tip

Yeah I think that's the closest you're gonna get for a while, you've got fairly specific needs There are games with economy and upgrading, but the gameplay isn't the same, it's either one or the other.
