Bounty Bob Strikes Back

If you took a fancy to Bounty Bob in Miner 2049er, now's your chance to renew the acquaintance. Bounty Bob is back with a vengeance.

All he has to do is claim the mine and foil the evil plans of Yukon Yohan. He does this by scurrying around each of the twenty levels of the mine, filling in sections of the framework as he does so. Once all the sections of framework are filled in, he can move on to the next cavern.

Needless to say, there are complications. The mine is full of mutants out to stop him, and he must eat various snacks on the way to get the strength to deal with them. There are, however, a number of ingenious pieces of equipment scattered about which help Bob in his frenzied progress - lifts, a grain elevator, suction tubes, even a utility hoist.

It's a familiar arcade action, but the graphics are only average and it's a bit pricey for what it is.
