• Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

The first time I played this game it was a demo that appeared on a C64 covertape. I didn't really enjoy it until I got hold of the full version and persisted with it beyond the first few levels.

The game is a cool puzzler that seems to have made an impression on the C64 community, along with the gaming press. ZZAP! 64 gave it an overall score of 87%, which it thoroughly deserved.

So does a cool game automatically mean a cool ending?

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used a trainer that allowed me to jump straight to the end! RESULT :)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: You get a colourful picture depicting our hero and his success.


  • Vinny: WHAT?! I can't believe this is it! Where's the music and epilogue? What a total disappointment. I love the picture, which is why I am going to give it 2.5/10.

  • Kungfufurby: This reminds me of the ending to Robocop 3. Minus the music. Bummer.

    Hey, a picture is better than a bunch of text, but only if it makes sense. To me, this makes sense.

  • Brendan Phoenix: A pic without txt to me is just as bad as text without the pic. Both show a complete lack of imagination.

    Poor show.

  • Andy Vaisey: Lovely cartoony picture but then..?

    A bit weird to put in the effort to draw then display a rather spiffy piccie but then nothing else. Bit like baking a lovely wedding cake then displaying it in the baking tin...

  • Matthew Rodgers: Nice pic! Like it...

  • Gaz Spence: ug Bomber is a good variant of Bomberman and the type of game that works really well on the C64. If I remember correctly, I think the game allows for 4 player action - although it would be a bit of a squeeze with two people having to use the keys. The ending pic is pretty good and I think it deserves a 4.

FINAL SAY: Nice picture, but where's the rest of the ending?

G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
