Bounce2 is an acion game where you have to controlla tank, and shoot a
blob, which bounces around the screen. This is a game for medium-speed
computers, so if yo have a Pentium, you are likely to see just a bluur
on your screen. This is version 2.10, so in the next versions, there
will be a subprogram which controlls the speed of the game. I'm only
starting programming, so this isn't the best it could be.
i. Instructions - navigate your tank by pressing up/down/left/right on
the directional pad. Fire by pressing Ins, and rotate
the barrel left/right by pressing Home/PgUp.
ii. Clues - sometimes, if you get lucky, the blob gets stuck in
the outer border(s). If you don't have any idea what
the heck it means - don't worry, when you start playing
you will understand it. Now, if it does get stuck, just
ride over the border, to the other side, and shoot it,
since you shots can't go through walls - this is the
only way. (It happens randomly - more rarely on high
levels, so if you do get it, you are lucky!)
iii. How to die - If the blob touches you - guess what? -- you are dead!
You have only one life, so very carefull...

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
