Bomb Jack Beer Edition - WIP enhanced Amiga port of an Arcade classic is nearly complete!


It's a late one but by Jolly is this a good announcement, as Graeme Cowie has just released the latest beta version of his in development enhanced Amiga port of ' Bomb Jack '. Yes indeed it is time to shout out from the retro zone as Beta 7a of ' Bomb Jack Beer Edition ' has made an appearance and if anything according to the creator, it isn't just better but the game is nearly complete for a May release!


This game which we featured previously is one of many ports of the original Arcade classic, but an overhauled fan version which aims to be one of the best Arcade conversions especially for the Amiga. As for this beta version however it has a large number of changes such as fixes to collision bugs, various GFX bug fixes, high-score routine working, all new sound FX by Saimon69, new Beer edition rounds and much much more.


Please Note: The game has been tested on an A500 with 1mb of ram 512Kb Chip / 512 Fast. The game is known to work on other models including the AGA machines (in fact I know it does) but I can only say I have tested it on WinUAE and on my real A500. After May 19 I will release the source code and the guys here may be able to fix up compatibility if it crashes on the accelerator stuff.
