Mighty Bombjack is a more advanced version of the original Bombjack game. The concept is the same, you have to collect the bombs in order to reach the next level. This time the levels are larger, and scroll in various directions unlike the single screen levels of it predecessor. There are tons of levels to play through, with many bonus items to collect and enemies to avoid. Overall it's a pretty good platform game, so give if it a go if like me you missed out on it first time around.

The final level is complete!

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed the final screen you get a page of text telling you that the curse of Belzebut has been solved and that peace has been restored to the land. You then get a game over screen before the game returns to the main menu.


  • Neil: A lot of hard work for very little. Very disappointing.
  • Vinny: OMG! This is sooooo disappointing :( The game itself is pretty cack, and unfortunately it doesn't stop there because the ending is also dire. I do wonder why they bother releasing games that are this poor. Actually, I know why they do it - to make a massive wad of dosh off the back of the original Bombjack release.
  • Kungfufurby: I actually think it's pretty much standard Elite quality ending. What I mean by this is that a mere text screen ends the game. Well, it's a quick wrap-up as usual. And who rigged the Game Over screen with a "Lame Over" screen in the PRG file? That's funny.
  • Brendan Phoenix: This was when Elite were releasing some trash on the C64 tarnishing the great name they made for themselves with Ghosts n Goblins, & Buggy Boy, etc.

    Their games from this era had some nice graphics - especially the sprites, like this game (and Gremlins 2) but the games stank and their tie ins were lame. Shame.
  • Gaz Spence: Endings don't get any more sparse than this one. Rudimentary in the extreme. A serious thumbs down for me. Saying that, maybe Elite would be a good software house to add to the collections part... just a thought.
  • Andy Vaisey: Almost a virtual slap in the face... just pointless...

FINAL SAY: Don't both with this one. It's bloody awful.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
