    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.

    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)
