Elite had high hopes for this sequel to the Taito platform classic in Spring '87. Although the gameplay never really matched that of its stable mate Bubble Bobble, it was a good, addictive, platform challenge nonetheless. The cute character from the original game is not quite so cute in this sequel as he comes armed with a knife to deal with his adversaries. The display has a semi-3D effect as BJ leaps onto the screen as he explores his platforms. These are scattered with treasure which BJ must collect - being careful to avoid the mutated dinosaurs who would prefer to keep the treasure themselves. Not in the first division with Bubble Bobble but in the same league.

Cute platform capers in the Bubble Bobble tradition.
