Bonanza Bros (MD / Mega Drive)

Game Profile

Mobo and Robo Bonanza are enjoying their favorite television show when the picture crackles and the shadowy figure of a mysterious stranger appears on screen. This figure asks them to collect certain items that he has placed inside various buildings to test his security force. If they return the items successfully, Mobo and Robo will be rewarded.

The two of them agree to get the job done in just three minutes, however, they don't know yet that each building is packed with security guards who will raise the alarm if they are caught red-handed and a huge reward will be given out if Mobo and Robo are apprehended.

Fortunately both Mobo and Robo are equipped with bullets that can knock the guards unconscious for a few seconds. Help the infamous Bonanza Bros. infiltrate a number of different locations ranging from banks to mansions to casinos and don't get caught!

Grab the target items and head for the exit!

Bonanza Bros. harkens back to the early 80's arcade titles with their simple, yet addictive play control ideas. While there are obvious Keystone Kapers and Elevator Action influences throughout the game, the overall gameplay design is at least original...

Brilliant in two player for a few hours on a miserable sunday afternoon. The single player is good for a bit but becomes repetitive all too fast. Used to enjoy playing it with my brother when we were younger, robbing banks and seeing who could get to the roof first with the most loot. While competing for loot you would also be working together, closing doors in the faces of guards to buy your mate a few extra seconds and heading off to different areas to distract sleeping guards. The graphics due suit this game and are something you wont find in many games, the screenshots dont do it justice at all. A 4/5 star purchase for the two player mode, about a 2/3 for one player, there really is no drive to play unless your competing and co-operating with a friend.

Yep, a blast for 2 player. A bore for single player. Woth picking up for the silly fun alone, just don't expect anything too deep.

Master System version is WAY better, don't know why they messed with the screen size on the Mega Drive version.

Heh, I used to love this game =)
For the game play? Partially... but not really...
For the graphics? Not really...
For the depth? Hardly...
What then? The MUSIC =D OMG I still love the music in this game, it always brings a smile to my face. The sound effects are quite funny as well =P
Still, since it lacks replay value and is so short I can only give it a 3/5.

1P probably deserves the 3, or even the 2 (It can be really slow in 1P) but you can have such a good 4 star laugh in 2P

Good simple fun with a petty unique concept for its time. It really is a game meant for 2 players though.

Good music, too little environment interaction. A good 3-star game but no more.

A decent simplistic game. It requires some stradgey, decision making, and stealth making it unique for it's day. Has nice sence of humor to it. (Man, I love hitting people with the doors.) I like it, but it's not an incredible game. It can be addicting at times, and the 2P mode is a nice addition if you have somebody to play this with.

Bonanza Brothers, one of the first Sega Megadrive games I played and dated as it seems now, it did show off a major difference betwen the Sega Master/Nintendo NES and Sega's 16 bit black box. Graphics were polished and cartooney, music and sfx were perfectly suited and the gameplay was simple but fairly addictive, especially in 2 player. If only was a bit cheaper I'd recommend more people try this...especially for the 2 player mode.
