Bomb Jack

Bomb Jack is a leaping super hero who must defuse bombs on floating platforms all over the world by running over them. Patrolling the platforms are nasty robots which threaten your superhero plans, but help is available in the form of flashing symbols which award extra lives, bonus points, or allow Jack to destroy the robots.

I must admit that I quite enjoyed playing the odd game of Bomb Jack in my friend's house, but I don't think I would have bought it at its full price. At two quid, however, it's not such a bad buy, but it's still not the best budget game ever.
