Description

Bomber is a vertically scrolling shoot 'em up where the player flies a B-29 bomber and must destroy three heavily guarded enemy bases. On each level the player must make it through enemy lines to the base which is always 200 kilometers away, the remaining distance indicated in the corner of the screen. The plane can move left and right, as well as accelerate and decelerate. The bomber is equipped with two types of weapons: a cannon to destroy aircraft, and bombs to destroy ground targets such as bunkers and tanks. A red crosshair indicates the location at which the dropped bomb will explode. The player has three lives, and a bonus life is awarded for every 10,000 points.

Bomber DOS In face of this overwhelming opposition, we face defeat.
Rinse, repeat. When we run out of aircraft, it's game over.

Trivia

Bugs

The first public version 2.0 was released in a hurry without much testing (it was shareware after all), and digitized sound did not sound right on the SB16 and the GUS using SBOS. Version 2.1 was released shortly after to fix these issues.
