Seeing as my brain hasn't completely shut down I can still remember in the late 80's on my Amstrad CPC 464 playing the brilliant Arcade port ' Bomb Jack '. It is a game that required you the player to high jump and float about getting rid of all the bombs on the screen before they are used to blow up historic places of interest, which is made more difficult by the enemies on screen. It was such a good game that sadly many felt the C64 version could've been so much better, and thanks to Retrofan and his overhaul, this latest Bomb Jack DX C64 version is looking just that.

There's not a huge number of games where we could claim that the CPC version was superior to the C64 version. Bomb Jack was one of them though, and then they go and release this! It looks great...

Actually I could argue many games that came out both were possibly overall better on CPC.
Bombjack I couldn't really say as I never played it much.  Wasn't a fan of the arcade game.
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy
