Back in the days when the Amiga was a mere twinkle in Commodore's eye, Elite released a conversion of a fairly run of the mill arcade game called Bombjack. No one expected it do to particularly well, but we were all proved wrong when it positively soared up through the charts, earning Elite a fair few pounds in the process.
Well, the good news is that Elite have wheeled ol' Bombjack out of the deep freeze, set him on thaw and the result is Mighty Bombjack, a multi-
The plot goes something like this. Once upon a time (I love an original intro) there was a goody king called Pamera, who was a just sort of fellow. He had managed to maintain peace within his kingdom for many years, so it was inevitable that someone would eventually try and muck it all up. That someone was Beelzebut, a wicked demon if ever there was one.
Beelzebut decided that it was about time old Pamera was put in his place, so he decided to plot against the king to bring about his downfall.
Upon hearing of his wicked plans, the brothers Mighty set forth to conquer old Beelzebut. Unfortunately, things didn't go too well. Indeed, only one brother survived the confrontation - Jack. Licking his wounds, he vowed to return to defeat Beelzebut. Eventually he does - but he'll need your guidance to do it.
You must guide Jack through 16 levels of platform action, collecting bombs and bombs and bonuses as you go, whilst avoiding the baddies that have been sent out to get you.
Ok, we've seen it all before, but Mighty Bombjack still manages to deliver the same addictive qualities that made the original such a hit.
