> BOUNTY BOB STRIKES BACK by Big Five Software

Completed  by David Craddock
• Reviewed  by Vinny Mainolfi

Both David and I share a love for this game and it has remained one of our favorites since the day it was released way, way back in 1985! Bounty Bob Strikes Back is a fantastically challenging platformer that incorporates a unique graphics style throughout. Of course, it can be frustrating at times, but it still urges us all on to have just one more try.

I'm delighted that David played through the game so that we can all, finally, see the ending...

Level 25 is complete!

Onwards and upwards...

Fireworks and an ending message :)

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: As most of us are complete and utter cheats, David was not going to break the mould: he used an infinite lives cheat :)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once level 25 is complete, the level interlude tells you that level 26 is "The End". The screen flicks to a message that appears bit by bit, which reads: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE AN EXPERT! FOR GETTING THIS FAR, YOU MAY START AT ANY LEVEL YOU DESIRE BY SETTING SPECIAL CODES 1-25 IN THE GAME ADJUSTMENT SCREEN AND THEN PRESSING F7." Behind the final message is a fireworks display.


Web Master: I am truly shocked that this game has an ending! I always thought it just looped back to level 1. It's great to see that it has one and also the fact that the programmer put a small amount of effort into producing it. I think it deserves an overall score of 4.

David: Sadly, the ending doesn't match up to the rest of the game as far as presentation is concerned, but at least you get a congratulatory message and fireworks display (poor as it is). I'd give it 3/10 overall.

FINAL SAY: It's not brilliant, but at least it has an ending.

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
