Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Bomb Jack'

Rating:5 User: WhizzBang

Gameplay: Fly around the screen collecting bombs and avoiding monsters, get power-ups, and go through the bombs in the order they are lit to receive a bonus score.

This and the Gameboy mono version of Bomb Jack are arguably the finest versions around of this Capcom classic. The game is colourful, plays smoothly, is fast, and has the gradually increasing difficulty tuned just right.

I think this is one of the few Spectrum games that still stands up strong today and could be introduced to a child today who would enjoy it as much as I did back in the 80's.
