Bombsweeper [Model BD-62]
Not emulated in MAME [MACHINE] Handheld Electronic Game
Bombsweeper © 1987 Nintendo Co., Ltd.
The player character is John Solver, who must navigate a maze to defuse bombs set by "Jack". When playing on "Game A" mode, the maze begins to move from left to right after a certain number of bombs are defused, and the player must find an exit back to the surface. The top screen is merely cosmetic, and shows the boss who sends the player character into the underground maze. Unlike in most Game & Watch games, lost lives are not reset when a player reaches 300 points.
