Dyna Bomb 2 is a great old-school platformer, it’s difficult but not unfair and the levels have enough going on that you always feel entertained. I found it best to just jump on and do a few levels here and there but it does lend itself well to extended play. I would have personally liked the upgrades and abilities to be permanent but then that would be a different game, in fact, on reflection, it’s fine being a one-time use because it adds a layer of tension to a game that looks relaxed. I enjoyed this sequel more than the first one and it’s definitely worth a play.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
