Hi, what kind of cartridge format is the CRT file?

Nice game. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 02:41:10. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

The .crt version runs great on the MiSTer. but it crashes after you enter your initials on the high score board. The game screen goes black, with a flickering multi-color border (CRT TV)  -and then the game needs to be reset to be able to play it again.

This is the only game that has this issue out of many that I have bought here...

Besides the one issue I have come across (and hope they can fix) It's a great game. well done team!

Great game! Was waiting for a new adventure of Bounty Bob for decades! The flashing of the enemies before they revert would really be helpful. Next a sequel to Bounty Bob Strikes Back with the better controlable jumping and even more sophisticated levels! 

The flashing enemy feature has now been included in the game :)

Tolles Spiel! Derzeit starte ich es immer wieder um zu schauen ob ich nicht doch irgendwie weiter komme :P

Auf meinem Kanal habe ich auch mal ein kurzes Video zum Spiel veröffentlicht:

nice video but i didn't understand a word german

Feature Request:

Miner 2049er was originally written for Atari Computers.

If you consider the Atari 800XL version as "original" version you see a very nice feature, which wasn´ t implemented to the C64 version.

Before enemies change back from vulnerable, the begin to flash. One time, then twice and then three times.

This makes the gameplay quite fair, because you get warned.

Watch 1:56 - 2:02 to see, what I mean.

Also there are some nice "intro-screenss" from 0:05 to 1:45 :)

They flash in the C64 version of Bounty Bob Strikes Back

Daniel Avery hat ein richtig schönes Prequel programmiert. Auch die Sammler-Boxen von Psytronic sehen sehr cool aus. 🕹

Auf meinem YouTube Kanal habe ich es im Rahmen der C64 Spielzeit vorgestellt. Schaut doch mal vorbei:

Great game, here is my little tribute to it...

Great work, I like the game a lot! Thanks also for the .crt version!

Thank you for the crt version!

No problem! Great, itsn't it?! Gotta love that supa-quick loading

Yes it indeed is! Even with jiffy, the old version was super slow but I see why with so many small files and exomizer depacking on top of that so the cart version is a most welcome addition for sure :)

Love the game! Thank you.

What kind of Loader do you use? (Had Some issues with Jiffy & Dolphin Dos. If you plan an update pls take a look at this.)

Edit: after complete reboot no more loading issues.

Anyway, this game is fun fun fun!

Its a standard kernel $ffd5 load

Great game! You guys should add the C64 tag under the "more information" dropdown so the game shows up under the c64 platform searches on itch :)

I've added the tag - great idea, thanks!

Hell Yeh

Amazing game!
