Description

Essentially a limited Robotron clone (firing only in the direction of forward movement), Bob vs. the Mob sees your protagonist, a little stickman, running around a forested environment attempting to mow down the most assailants (more stickmen, apparently members of the criminal underworld) while expending the least ammunition, using a machine gun (for sharpshooters) and grenades (where a more ham-fisted approach is called for.)

Trivia

Distribution

The Mistigris tradition was to release a pack of "joke" computer art at the start of every April, satirising contemporary trends in the computer art scene and deflating the seriousness with which their adolescent peers approached arranging pixels on a screen. As such, the annual April Fool's pack would generally contain "Hello, world!" first attempts (of invariably low quality) at computer artwork by individuals creating outside their established genre, style and format -- poets presenting pictures, illustrators composing music, etc.

While programming was what Eto did best (though his attempts at ANSI artwork can be found in the following year's Fool's pack), he didn't consider this exercise-game to be good enough to warrant a conventional release, and so it was crammed in with a year's worth of joke artwork -- more skillfully assembled than everything else that was in there with it combined!

The game could be downloaded as ET-BVM1.ZIP inside Mist0104.zip, but due to the lack of seriousness motivating the collection it doesn't seem to have ended up mirrored in any of the artscene collections.
