The Game

Collecting the bombs in order (a fuse is lit after you collect the first bomb) can provide huge end-of-level bonuses.

When the bonus meter is full, a power-ball will be released, turning all enemies temporarily into coins.

In 2 Player mode, if one player dies, the remaining player will have a chance of collecting a "heart" coin on the next level to bring them back to life.

Thanks To

Another @pahammond banger! And as usual this looks and feels amazing.

I'm finding it tough though. I guess the idea is to always go for the fire bombs but they next one in the group sequence always seem to infuriate me ! I thought the order was simple : top-to-bottom, left-to-right. But that doesn't seem to be the case (especially on level 2). Can you explain the fire bomb sequence?

I find it amazing that you've managed to carefully scale down the levels without them feeling cramped. A great port!

Thanks @phil. The bomb arrangements are as per the original (I hope!). Here’s where I got the sequence layout:
