Mighty Bomb Jack is a side-scrolling action game and the sequel to Namco's Arcade game Bomb Jack. The eponymous hero Bomb Jack is back, and is this time exploring a large pyramid to defeat a demon and save the royal family of Pamera.
Unlike its static screen predecessor, the game is far more open, with larger levels to explore for treasures as well as the usual bombs to defuse. Bomb Jack is able to jump fairly high and when holding the jump button while in the air he can float downward slowly. His dexterity is his best means of avoiding the constantly spawning enemies. Occasionally, Bomb Jack finds stages that are single screen like those in the original Bomb Jack.
The game was originally released in Arcades in 1986. Namco brought it to the NES/Famicom later the same year. It was later ported to the C64, Atari ST and Amiga and eventually saw a release on the Wii's Virtual Console.
