Classic Bomb Blitz added to the 8bitrocket Retro Arcade Showcase
Bomb Blitz is based on an a classic Vic 20 game called Blitz 16 combined with Canyon Bomber (VCS 2600) and the classic keep the helicopter in the air Flash Game.
In developer Mitomane’s words:
Description: A fast higly addicting action casual game with a retro pixel style with 8-bit sound FX. Inspired by the old Commodore game “Blitz 16” mixed with the classic flash game “Helicopter”.
You control an airplane flying over a city. Drop the bomb to destroy city buildings, you can drop one bomb at time. Avoid enemy airplanes patrolling the sky. Bonus point for destroying planes or killing men at work. CONTROL KEYS: SPACE BAR to control plane. X to drop a bomb.
8bitrocket take: Bomb Blitz has a distinctively great retro feel. The game is a fun, but difficult mix of a few different retro titles, especially Canyon Bomber and of course the Vic 20 game it is based on. It contains a very nice set of retro pixel art and simple sounds 8bit sounds and some great particle effects.
