Review of 'Bomb Jack'

Rating:5 User: Vampyre

For a twelve month period, from Xmas 1985 to Xmas 1986, Elite were probably the best arcade conversion software house around - most of them down to the talents of Keith Burkhill - although he wasn't involved in the Bomb Jack conversion.

Bomb Jack is an absolute masterclass of a conversion - in fact I would rather play the Speccy version than the Tehkan/Tecmo coin-op - it's that good!

Overall it's a ridiculously playable game, with lovely colurful backgrounds, decent sound and although the graphics can become a bit of a mess when too many enemies congregate at the bottom of the screen it doesn't detract from a supremely playable game.
