Bounty Bob Strikes Back – Amstrad CPC – US Gold


Released for the Amstrad CPC in Europe in 1985 by US Gold, this conversion by Abersoft is one of the more visually accurate ports but suffers in the gameplay department due to sluggish movement and frequent slow-downs. Levels 12 (Acid Rain), 22 (Advanced Cannon), and 23 (Advanced Pulverizers) are missing. The title screen is also missing the animations of the original and the colors of each level are static (the same every time).

Bounty Bob Strikes Back – Atari 8bit Home Computers – US Gold – Cassette


This is the Atari 8bit Home Computer version by US Gold on cassette. Also shown in the gallery is a bootleg version on diskette.

The cassette version took an eternity to load — about thirteen and a half minutes. U.S. Gold took advantage of that time to display advertisements for other games on the load screen including, yes, Strip Poker. Classy.

We are missing the Americana version! If you have it and wish to donate it to the Miner 2049er Museum, please reply to this post! We’ll even accept just a picture if you don’t wish to part with yours.
