The evil computer BUGS have raided the Galactic Computer Museum and, in an act of theft and vandalism, spread all the 8-Bit systems of history across multiple time zones/planets.
You are adventurer Bob Smith, complete with a Hans Olo blaster, who has come to visit the Galactic Computer Museum on his vacation.
So angry is Bob with this wanton vandalism, he vows to put the Galaxy back to its right state – and delete computer BUGS wherever he finds them!
Collect 'em up with shooting elements

The 8-BIT WARS was to be the game to accompany the film by Andy Remic. Sadly, our friend Andy lost his battle with cancer in February 2022, aged just 50. However, on this day of the Spectrum's 40th birthday, we are delighted to announce the release of The 8-Bit Wars game. A joint effort between Andy and programmer Luca Bordoni (as well as many others!).
As with all Cronosoft games, this is not-for-profit. However, we are charging a couple of pounds extra and all of these proceeds are going to Andy's family in his memory, as a thanks for the massive achievements and contributions to the Spectrum community.
