IMG Reviews Captain Bumper
11:35 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Here at IMG we always keep our eye on titles that are examples of original Mac development, and today we have posted a review of a shining example of Mac ingenuity. Captain Bumper is a shareware title by French developers MacRun, and our reviewer found much to like about this cartoonish, action-packed title. Here is an excerpt:

Imagine being immersed in an action/arcade game based on your Sunday comics page. MacRun chose a 2D 1/2 graphic engine (of their own creation…see below) well. It gives a “homey” retro feeling to the experienced game player, and a “simple” enough feel to the new player to not frustrate them or overwhelm them with rendered details.

Your goal is a devilishly simple one: “help Captain Bumper to free Princess Lovita who is being held prisoner on a mysterious planet…To do this you must foil the traps that the evil Zeurbs have laid in your path, and find your way by exploring the 10 increasingly richer levels of the game.”

Follow the link below to the rest of the review; there is also a demo of the game available.
