Bob Winner is an early action game with some adventure elements by Loriciel, set in the US' wild, wild West. Bob Winner is on a quest to find a lost civilisation, and has to collect three keys which are being held by three opponents that he meets on his journey - two boxers and a gun-wielding cowboy. To fight them, Bob has to find the right object. There are only about twenty screens, but they all feature stupendous digitised backgrounds. |
Back in 1986, the game was best known for its beautiful background graphics on the 16-bit home computers (if I remember right?). The PC conversion is lacking a bit there with its 4 colour art, overall comparable to the Amstrad CPC version. But then for CGA standards the backgrounds still look very nice. The game itself is a fun little game for a while, not much more.
