Bomb Jack, Arcade

A classic platform game from 1984, Tehkan‘s Bomb Jack is a colourful collect ’em up, with bombs that must be collected in the right order, to get the full bonus.

Bomb Jack can jump and float (done by holding down the jump button while in mid air), which is very useful for avoiding the many on-screen baddies that are after you. This game mechanic allows for precise control of Jack and which also makes for a much more subtle and challenging game than at first appears.

Bomb Jack has been converted to just about every video game format imaginable, but this arcade original is still the best version ever made.
