The C64 version of Bomb Jack 1 & 2 were pretty awful. Mighty Bombjack is much better on the C64.

I'm not a great fan of the games though. Definitely one that was designed to rob players of many coins back in the day...

I like the new logo & cover, and it does look like the old one updated which is great.

I agree that the definition should include older machines... I think we can be quite liberal in our definition of retro and including anything from 2000 and earlier. That's five years ago now, well behind the current generation (and the next). So that includes early PS1 really, and a lot of games th...

Here, here.

I love Citadel, I've completed it (well, on normal traps, nearly done it on random traps as well) and it does stand as a very good title.
