Classics Bazooka Jim

Note : This is NOT my game. But after Rikus put up Atom Boy 2 it just seemed right to put up it's almost as good counterpart.

This is a very fun yet dated platformer. It follows the same style as Atom Boy 2. Blow up baddies to save the Earth by using a endlessly charged bazooka. Very fun and quite hard. Get this classic KNP game.

This game was made by 'THE YAK' by the way. To find out more info you'll have to of course download the game.

LOL I have to agree with Podunkian. I think there should be. These games deserve a section of their own. Has anyone ever heard of and old KNP adventure game called 'Freddie Trims a tree' it is excellent as well if I remember correctly.

A classic section would be good

I see it shares Atom Boy's Horrid explosion collision-detection. Wonderful!

I can't open the zip file!!!!, it says: Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive. If you downloaded this file, try downloading the file again. I downloaded it 3 times, and the same thing happened

Ever heard of Jeff Minter? He created some great games back in the 80s and 90s for various platforms (Vic-20, C64, Jaguar) and went by the pseudonym The Yak. His website can be found at http://llamasoft.co.uk/ What does this have to do with Bazooka Joe? Not much, except for the nickname of the author.... :)

A few things:
- Bazooka Jim was made by the Yak (but not Jeff Minter), the Yak was the nickname of my brother James Greenaway. My name is Tom Greenaway.
- My brothers and I made games when we were younger including Atom Boy 1 & 2 and Bazooka Jim. Edward Greenaway made Atom Boy, which is why (as Duncan pointed out) it shares the explosion collision detection from Bazooka Jim.
- James and I have made some "real" commercial games in the last few years: Bean's Quest, Time Surfer, Duet, Bean Dreams. You can check them out here: www.kumobius.com

If I hadn't made games with K&P when I was younger I would never have been able to make the games I make nowadays

Lastly, I'll see if I can dig up an old build for Bazooka Jim and link it here
