Screen orientation: Vertical
Players: 1 or 2, taking turns
Buttons: 1 (jump)
DIP switch settings
You control BombJack, and have to collect all the bombs on the screen to advance to the next one. One of the bombs has a burning fuse, and if you collect it, the fuse on another bomb will start burning. Collect all the bombs in the correct order for large bonuses. Out to kill you are mummies, mechanical birds, black spheres and other nasties. You can collect 'B's for extra bonus, and when you've collected some bombs, a 'P' will start bouncing around the screen. Touch it, and you can give the nasties a taste of their own medicine.
This is one of the few arcade games where you can get extra credits. This is done by catching the 'S' coin that sometimes appears on the screen. This doesn't happen very often, and I don't know if it's just luck or if the chances are greater if you do anything specific (except changing the DIP switches, of course).
An old classic which is very fun to play, despite it's simplicity. One of my favourites.
