ZX Bomb Sweeper - Another Game & Watch title arrives on the ZX Spectrum!

Another day and another Game and Watch mention, as the previous one was called 'Octopus Deluxe' which was ported over to the Amstrad CPC 6128, and this latest release called 'ZX Bomb Sweeper' has been developed for the ZX Spectrum. Now unlike the other game developed by Team Galaxy as a port of a 1981 title, Bomb Sweeper was a game originally released in 1987 and has been converted over to the ZX Spectrum by Menyiques.

Here is what the wikipedia says about the game "Dynamite Jack, a masked bomber, has planted many bombs in the sewers. You play the role of John Solver, who must descend into the sewer and defuse the bombs before it's too late! You must reach at least one of the bombs hidden in the walls to clear the screen and receive a bonus for the time remaining. The only obstacles in your path are the walls, which you must either maneuver around or push them along provided there is no obstruction in the way. Some levels are a test of speed, others are a test of logic and intelligence".

  1. Awesome. This is the 4th dual screen G&W this developer has converted to single screen for the spectrum. Seriously great work. Thanks.

  2. Great Great !!! Ah i bei tempi "andati" !!!
    Ottima programmazione!

  3. Peccato che sia troppo breve. Infatti i livelli si ripetono dopo 10 minuti !!!!

    1. Menyiques (autore): Il gioco, come la macchina originale, è composto da 80 livelli, di cui 45 originali e 35 ripetuti. In ogni blocco di 10 schermate ci sono sempre 5 nuovi enigmi. Alla fine di ogni blocco di 10 c'è un ulteriore livello a scorrimento laterale da superare.
