We’ve certainly had our fair share of Arcade games mentioned on Indie Retro News this year so far, from Tapper, to Puzzle Bobble, and yes even Space Invaders. But another game has just caught our attention, and that’s LC-Games latest homage to the 1980’s ‘Bagman’ called ‘Bagman Comes Back’; a game that’s available to download through the itch.io website as a version that is made up of 8 completely new stages.
According to the wiki for Bagman, The objective of the game is to maneuver the bagman through various mine shafts, picking up money bags and placing them in a wheelbarrow at the surface of the mine. The player must avoid pursuing guards, moving ore carts, and descending elevators. The player may temporarily stun the guards by striking them with a pickaxe or by dropping money bags on them when they are below the player on the same ladder. The player may move between the three screens which make up the level via shafts and on the surface.
