    Bomb Jack Description

    A platform game where the object is to collect bombs. Extra bonuses are awarded for collecting bombs with their fuses lit. When you get killed you drop to the nearest platform always landing on your head. Levels begin to repeat after level 18.

    Game Introduction

    Collect all the bombs to complete a screen. Only one bomb at a time has a lit fuse. Collect 20 or more of these lit bombs on a level for a bonus (10k to 50k). Avoid the various monsters who chase you. Monsters are drawn in a very distinctive grey color and have a 3D look. There are various background pictures on each level (e.g. the Sphinx, skyscrapers, a castle).
    Game Play

    Monsters move in different patterns. For example, the bird character always moves towards you slowly, but it can only move horizontallly or vertically.
    Grab the powerball when it appears to freeze the monsters for a short period of time during which you can kill them simply by touching them. Collect the "Bonus" symbols to increase the score for each lit bomb collected. Pick up an "Extra" symbol for an additional man and a "Special" symbol for an extra credit.

    Hit the Jump button to fly up the screen until the button is released. Tap the Fly button when falling to slow the character's descent.

      I still wonder how he managed that, we were hoping he would show us how to play at the Spazzy in Tassie meet Think he cracked around 7,000 going into his last man

            Removed score as dips were set wrong, i think having them on harder means more enemies=more score.

            New score with dips set at default( EASY, MEDIUM, EASY ) and using set 1

            I am done!! I started at 6am and this game can now shove itself up its own ass!

                Ahhh trust this one to come up on a busy week for me, going to Sydney for ACDC tomorrow.

                Still might get a bit of time to play on Sat night, that will be it, one shot at the title. Yeah I feel ready (Dunno how I will feel after a 70,000 people mosh pit)
                Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

                  This seems alot harder than I remember with the dips on hard.

                  Earlier versions of mame had the dips set easier !

                  Great game, one of my favs

                      Both MAME default dips I have are

                      Lives 3
                      Bird Speed Easy
                      Enemies Number & Speed Medium
                      Special Coin Easy

                      I couldn't do the dips last night as I wasn't close to a MAME setup

                      Also the rom is bombjack , game is (Set 2), I will update the first post

                        Thanks for the update - Thats the settings Ive always played on even in the arcade!

                        Mame has updated the defaults to hard, hard, easy - which also matches the factory defaults according to the manual!

                        I'm playing on my original board so I wanted to make sure I got the right settings

                          In my mame 0.135 it says that (bombjack)rom is set1 and that set2 (bombjack2)rom is a clone of set1

                          Also noticed that when I checked the dips there was an option to change the scores to get a free man. This should be set at "none".

                              Been playing set 2 for some time, downloaded set 1 and played for a couple of hours, cant see any difference Maybe go set 1 as thats what they play on Twin Galaxies.

                              I cant seem to find anywhere on 1 or 2 to adjust a free life? There is an option to adjust default high score though. Its set on 10,000 by default.
