Trivia

Covermount release

The game was given away free with the first issue of Amiga Power magazine in 1991. That magazine became one of the most respected and successful UK games publications ever.

Development

The game featured 250 levels, and many of these were designed by guests including Andrew Braybrook and Geoff Crammond. Jeff Minter designed a level - when the bombs exploded it left behind a llama and a small pile of dung. Gary Liddon and Gary Penn created a giant ZZAP for one level.

Considering that Tony Crowther and Ross Goodley were involved in the development, that's a lot of talent involved.

Launch title

Bombuzal was a launch title for the SNES.
