User Reviews

A completely ill-conceived sequel, with none of the thrills of the original ZX Spectrum Martin Smith (62961)

[Budget re-release] Nicer graphics and jollier tunes give this the edge over the other versions. Gameplay is the same.

The display has a semi-3D effect as BJ leaps onto the screen as the explores his platforms. These are scattered with treasure which BJ must collect - being careful to avoid the mutated dinosaurs who would prefer to keep the treasure themselves. Not in the first division with Bubble Bobble but in the same league.

An enjoyable and engrossing platform game, well worth the tiny sum.

Die Steuerung (ich testete die Schneider-Version) ist ebenso präzisise wie beim Vorgänger Der Sound der C-64-Fassung ist natürlich fetziger, ganz so, wie man es schon von Bomb Jack I gewohnt war. Die Grafik ist wiederum sehr ordentlich; wie gesagt, es hat sich kaum Grundlegendes verändert.

Naturally weaker than the other two on graphics and sound, but fun gameplay keeps the Spectrum version afloat.

Das Spiel kann aber durchaus fesseln und nicht zuletzt dank der kostenlosen Zugaben ruhigen Gewissens von uns empfohlen werden. Die raffinierte Steuerung, die Diagonal-Sprünge verbietet, sorgt dafür, daß Bomb Jack II sich von der Masse der Hüpf-Spiele abhebt.

ZX SpectrumYour Sinclair (May, 1987)
The game's not a complete disaster, but it's a pity you can't super-zoom around the screen in various directions any more. Now you merely jump up or down, left or right, gathering up the goodies and chopping the baddies. Mind you, getting your chops in can be a bit tricky. Some of those platforms just arn't big enough for you and a monster, and seeing as the monster has the advantage of being there first you've got to fight like f-f-f-f-ury to zap, them out of the way. Though they don't so much zap as disappear in a puff of smoke. The game's hardly likely to do that, but I'll bet a bomb to a damp banger that Bomb Jack will be played a lot longer than its sequel.

He's at it again! Who? Bombjack, of course! This time though he's collecting treasure. A little bit safer than defusing bombs.

This is an addictive game but it's poles away from the original classic. It is good, but not as good as the original.

[Budget re-release] The basic gameplay was almost the same to that of BJ, a main character who could fly between platforms. But for some reason all the graphics were reduced in size, which in turn reduced the gameplay... Only really recommended to fans of the original arcade conversion.

Commodore 64Tilt (Jun, 1987)
Ce logiciel n'a plus que la réputation de ses débuts. Etonnant de voir que l'on développe encore de si simples parties d'action. Le graphisme n'est ici qu'un décor statique et terne sur lequel va évoluer votre personnage. Un jeu monotone et sans intérêt, si ce n'est celui de recompter les bonus obtenus.
