Guess "let's all play" is dead as the dodo. Any other sites with active "let's all play" groups?

It was just so repetitive. Play it for a few seconds and you'd pretty much seen all it had to offer.
No sense of strategy, fun, or much tension. And an unintuitive control system for cutting jumps short or floating down.
You jump up, you fall down. Maybe something is in your way, maybe it isn't.
And to think you could have been playing Mappy.

Have you mixed up your games? Mappy is the terrible one.

Sorry, I can't do that because Bomb Jack is possibly my all time favourite arcade game. I still remember playing it in the arcade when it was brand new in!

Bomb Jack is KING ACENESS.

This forum = RUINED.

Reason = ALL OF YOU.

Just joking, although it is like you've all been cursed.

Bomb Jack was always in my top five games as a kid. I thought the game mechanic was great - and the backgrounds made it seem a little different too. It would work pretty well as an IOS touchscreen game if they got the controls right
