Captain Bumper 1.0 Released
12:56 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

We've been consistently impressed with the various preview releases of Captain Bumper from MacRun in the past, so we are very glad to announce that this game is now complete and shipping; a version 1.0 demo is also now available. While still an old-school side-shooter in form, this blazing-fast and gorgeous game is quite fun and addictive, and the 2D animation is superb. It will run on any PowerPC machine (yes, back to the 601) and requires only 8.6 or later, as well as GameSprockets.

The game tracks the exploits of Captain Bumper in a quest to free a princess held prisoner on a mysterious planet populated by the "Zerubs." Piloting your tiny ship you will take on asteroids, all manner of alien craft and a host of ground weapons as well. The speed and action is quite intense. If you'd like some retrogaming action but with gorgeous graphics and surreal, '50s-inspired alien landscapes, we highly recommend you grab the demo and give it a try.

The game is available for purchase from the MacRun web site, for $25 US. It is heartening to see that there are still plenty of Mac-only, Mac-first developers willing to publish titles of this caliber on our platform.
