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[1] 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.[2]
