So, I'd definitely track down a copy of this game just for the Sea Bomber variations, they make owning the game worth it. After all, I would've rated this game considerably lower if it weren't for the Sea Bomber games that were included with it. Bombs away!
The game's ok, there's obviously not much to it, it's not that exciting. The graphics were good for back then, as were the thundering explosions (but other than that, it doesn't have much sound), and with just the one button, control is no problem at all. But you're better off with the Canyon Bomber cartridge, as it's got a version of Sea Bomber on it, which is a bit like Atari's Destroyer coin-op. Now that's intense! Hmmmm, Giant Ant Hill Bomber...you know, that probably would've made a more interesting game.
Even with two different game forms, there just is not enough depth to this game to give it any real lasting value. It is a very common game, so it would not be too hard to find or expensive to buy, but that is really the only particularly good thing that can be said about this game. If you have a paddle controller, maybe it is worth paying a dollar for, but it is not worth much more than that.
Canyon Bomber can be fun in very small doses, but overall it’s just a little too primitive.
Although best played against a friend, there are also single-player variations of Canyon Bomber. The brain-dead computer opponent just seems to drop bombs continuously, but it still somehow manages to kick my butt. Canyon Bomber is playable, but definitely not my idea of a good time on a Saturday night.
