Bomber! is a 2D, top-down flying game for the Atari 2600. You play as a bomber pilot on a solo mission to lighten the enemy density by taking out approaching tanks. We wanted to take the 2D-scroller and add another dimension with the use of falling bombs as opposed to forward-firing guns.
This game was developed from scratch by a group of three students in LCC 2700 Intro to Computational Media. Our professor, Dr. Ian Bogost, listed our game among his favorites out of all Atari projects created in his class.
