"BOUNTY BOB" (US Gold)Print This PageUnavailableBookmark PageUnavailable

Description:
An intriguing platform game called Bounty Bob appeared in 1984. Having all the requirements and many more of a good solid and colourful platformer, Bounty Bob sported Teleporters, Slides, Suction Tubes and Lifts. Most of the levels have a methodical and well laid out design and contains some of the qualities of a great addictive game.

Nice little touches include the high score entry, where you manipulate two lifts which push out the letters, allowing you to spell your name with a limit of seven letters though.

Other nice touches include the entry of level codes, which let you start at a previously completed set of rooms.


Object:

Guide Bob throughout each level whilst avoiding or killing the many nasties. To clear each level, Bob must walk over each of the platforms to remove the grid underneath. Note that you cannot spend too much time planning your route, as each level has a timer which, when it runs down to zero, you lose a life. Once all the platforms are clear, then the level is completed and your remaining time on the clock is added to your score.

Criticism:
Once the levels are thought through, its not too difficult with a bit of practice to complete the game. The level code also make the game much easier than it should of been, therefore the game has a shorter than normal shelf life in your speccy collection.

The graphics are large but nicely crafted and the colour is well used, however there's probably too much purple for my liking ;)

Nonetheless, Bounty Bob is great platform game with a refreshing take on the genre - nice job Tim.
