Gacek - A Bomb Jack port for the Atari XL/XE (+VBXE) gets another teaser!

In the late 80's I played the brilliant Arcade port ' Bomb Jack '; a game that required you the player to jump and float about getting rid of all the bombs on the screen before they are used to blow up historic places of interest. It was such an awesome game that a new version looks to be in the works and this one is called Gacek and developed by Shanti77 for the Atari XL/XE (+VBXE). To coincide with this news, a new gameplay video by Saberman has been done of both versions which can be viewed as per usual via Indie Retro News!


As we said before although some would say the 2008 Atari XL/XE homebrew version of Bomb Jack is a really good conversion of the game already, this one looks to have better animation, a wider game screen, a change of soundtrack and a custom sprite engine all viewable in the two videos above. Do be aware however a few things are still missing in the game, but at some point in the near future it will be fully playable and will require 64K PAL inclusive of 63 fun packed levels!
