Dynamite (Acorn Electron Cassette 50 Game 40)


Attack the dam and flood the valley! Those are my orders. And for some reason I am not going to question them. I’ll just fly off on my merry way, singing Eric Coates’s Dambusters March to myself and dropping bombs so I can flood a building that looks a bit like a prison.

But what’s this? Some people don’t want want me to flood the prison and they are shooting rockets and guns at me. Very slowly. They should be easy to avoid, right?

Wrong. Because this is Cassette 50 my plane is shit and slow and easy to destroy.Guess those people in the prison are safe from being flooded. For today at least.

And, Cassette 50, why did you call this game Dynamite? There’s no dynamite! Maybe you should have used dynamite to go and blow the bloody dam up and then I wouldn’t have been shot out of the sky and be dead.

See the Amstrad version of Dynamite
See the Commodore 64 version of Dynamite
See the Atari 8-bit version of Dynamite
See the ZX81 version of Dynamite
Also, this is basically the same game as Attacker on the Commodore 64 Cassette 50
