New demo – Unity BombJack clone

So I recently made a clone of Bomb Jack in Unity.

I’m not sure how many people will remember this game first time round, but for me it’s a forgotten classic. The gameplay was tight and good fun and the mechanics were easy to grasp but different enough to be interesting and distinguishable from other platformer games.

If you’re not familiar with Bomb Jack, then you can view the Wikipedia page here, and see some gameplay footage here. It’s a single-screen platformer from 1984 made by Tekhan (now Tecmo).

Here’s a video of my demo in action:
