Bounty Bob Strikes Back! is the sequel to Miner 2049er and was initially released in 1984 for the Atari 8-bit series of computers.

Summary[edit]

This video game was later ported to the Atari 5200, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum in 1985. Gameplay is similar to Miner 2049er in that the player must inspect every section of 25 mines while avoiding mutants within a set time. One improvement to this sequel is after losing a life, sections on platforms remain covered and destroyed enemies do not reappear, thus making it easier to complete a level.

Reception[edit]

The ZX Spectrum version was voted the 19th best game of all time in a special issue of Your Sinclair magazine in 2004.[1]
