Bomb Jack Beer Edition - Enhanced classic WIP for the Commodore Amiga reaches beta 2D


Yet again Bomb Jack has appeared in our news feeds; a classic Arcade game from 1984 which required you the hero to collect all the red bombs on the screen to save historic places of interest while also avoiding deadly enemies such as birds and mummies! As we said before that same game which also had many different ports including the less than great Amiga port, has once again been overhauled to Bomb Jack Beer Edition but this time as version 2D!


This edition by Graeme Cowie is being developed for the Commodore Amiga with memories of playing on the computer, playing Bomb Jack in the Arcades and as the developer says " With Beer ". This latest version has a number of fixes over the previous release such as the annoying jump bug, collection detection, relaxed collision detection between Jack and Bombs ( more like the Arcades ), you can now reach high platforms like on level 14 and hopefully no more disappearing Jack!

Please note though this is still beta, the game WILL definitely crash intermittently and I'm still working on trying to identify what is causing the crash.
