A Superbly playable and addictive platform game, with gameplay that gives more than a passing nod to Namco\u0027s seminal "Pac-Man".\u0026#13;\nThe object of the game is to collect all of the bombs on each level, before progressing to the next. Extra point bonuses are awarded for collecting bombs with their fuses lit. Only one bomb at a time has a lit fuse, and collecting twenty or more of these lit bombs on any given level will earn the player a points bonus (see TIPS AND TRICKS for details). Bomb Jack is pursued around each level by a variety of constantly spawning, mechanical enemies. When Bomb Jack gets killed, he drops to the nearest platform, always landing on his head.\u0026#13;\nThe 5 different background pictures that feature in the game are : the Sphinx in Egypt, the Akropolis in Greece, Castle Neuschwanstein in Bavaria, skyscrapers and a cityscape by night. While the 5 backgrounds themselves are repeated as the player progresses, the platform layouts for each level are completely different. At least until level 18, after which the levels repeat themselves.\u0026#13;\nA powerball appears at semi-regular intervals and moves diagonally around the screen. If the player manages to grab this, all of the level\u0027s monsters are frozen for several seconds and can then be killed by having Bomb Jack fly into them (similar to the \u0027Powerpill\u0027 feature in "Pac-Man"). Collecting the Bonus \u0027B\u0027 symbols will increase the amount of points awarded for collecting bombs with their fuses lit. Picking up an \u0027Extra\u0027 symbol awards the player with an additional life, while catching the \u0027Special\u0027 symbol will give the player an extra credit.
