I wouldn't recommend this game for the faint of heart or if you get frustrated with hard games because it will take hours of playing to figure out this entire game. Otherwise track this gem down because it's more than worth it.

Scrambling around hundreds of screens looking for assorted objects and dodging hordes of nasties – sounds familiar, eh? Yep, it's yet another ladders and platforms game. But wait! Don't try for a getaway in sheer disgust, this one's a cut above yer average, believe me. So what's it all about? You've got to guide bouncing Bounty Bob around quite a few screens, hording unlikely combinations of clutter like flower pots, gems and cakes.

The great wacky action forces you to play 'just-one-more-game'. 25 screens just get better and better. May well be as successful as it's predecessor.

Graphics and sound are not that special, but if you like platform games this has to be for you. If you find the low level a piece of cake then there's three more including the C'mon which starts you off with less time. Bounty Bob is good, solid hopping stuff but unless you're a platform fan you'd better not apply.

Bounty Bob relies on screen layout to fox players rather than the aliens which are all important in Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. It is unfortunate that the character has been introduced onto the Spectrum market so late. Most potential customers are likely to say "Oh no, not another levels and ladders game!" But if that's what you're into you'll enjoy Bounty Bob at least as much as Jet Set Willy.

Bounty Bob retourne au fond de la mine 2049, et ce qui nous avait émerveillé lors de la sortie du premier jeu aurait tendance aujourd'hui à provoquer l'indifférence. Bien sûr, cette nouvelle version profite de l'amélioration générale des graphismes et animations. Mais les ludomaniques, la paume blanchie par le joystick, commencent à se lasser de ces jeux à l'action répétitive, où il s'agit surtout - et presque exclusivement - de sauter à propos. Les fanatiques du genre apprécieront en revanche les vingt cinq niveaux différents, la multiplication des animaux et les innombrables trésors à ramasser.

Dieses Programm ist gut geeignet a. für Leute, die ihre Großmutter in die Klappsmühle schicken wollen (und damit die Erbschaft einkassieren können) oder b. für Sadisten, die ihre Opfer auf einem Stuhl vor dem Fernseher (bzw. Monitor) fesseln und dann selber vergnügt stundenlang spielen (sie versuchen es jedenfalls). Für programmerfolgsverwöhnte Leute ist es wahrlich kein Vergnügen, Bounty Bob zu spielen! Es ist doch eine Unverschämtheit, bei einem Spiel mit stupidem Sound, flimmernder Blockgrafik, uralter Spielidee und Null-Bock-Motivation auch noch Geld zu verlangen!
