Bounder was one of the most successful games in the 80’s and was published by Gremlin Graphics in 1985. Gremlin were responsible for many classics such as Bounder, Re-Bounder, Monty Mole, Thing on a Spring, Zool etc… they were one of the biggest developers and publishers in the world and started by Ian Stewart, Gremlin was one of the pioneers to kickstart the games industry.
Bounder’s popularity spans decades and has continued to be featured in Retro Gamer with a 2 page spread only recently, Walk-through videos on Youtube, regular mentions about the game on social media and it’s been included in the new Mini C64 machine. This little tennis ball of fun continues to be highly regarded and fondly remembered in the retro-gaming community.
Originally created by Christian Shrigley, Andrew Green, Robert Toone, Bounder featured many ground-breaking features such as Parallax Scrolling, first seen on a computer game. The game featured 10 levels, all as challenging as the first and at times is unforgiving but that's what kept drawing people back to this best selling game. Zzap!64 gleefully pinned a Gold Medal on the daredevil tennis ball in its tenth issue, calling Bounder “an absorbing, demanding and totally innovative approach to the ageing platform formula,” and that's exactly what Bounder is.
Our Bounder version is faithful to the original and includes features which helps it translate to mobile devices. Our App includes the C64, Spectrum and Amstrad versions, not emulated but re-coded to a high standard so it looks and feels like the original computer versions but with new added extras to please retro gamers and attract new gamers to Bounder.

Ratings and Reviews
I highly recommend this.
You need to upgrade to the full version to get all of the levels, but even the free version is good, albeit with the adverts but they don't get in the way of the gameplay unlike other apps. Controls are a bit tricky at first but there's a few options on those. I highly recommend this. .
no time to play anything
Really good game and that level loader option is brilliant, it captures the originals perfectly. Might take a bit of time to master the controls but already i've made good progress with the game. The ads do not get in the way, i'm going to purchase this.
Free version is good
A really solid port of a classic Gremlin game. Being an Amstrad owner (and still do now!) this Bounder version is great, it's just like the original but I'd say even better with these level loading options and different ways to display the game and control it..
