Bobby's Revenge is a Christmas freeby game by BSC Games. The goal of the game is to shoot Santa in his sleigh with your paintball gun 50 times to win. Why would you want to shoot Santa? Well, you are actually an eight-year-old boy (Bobby) who, instead of a computer, recieved 5 pairs of underwear, 6 pairs of socks, and a new set of pencils for Christmas. This is why Bobby wants to shoot Santa with his paintball gun (which incidentily sounds more like a shotgun than like a paintball gun, oh dear).
The gameplay is actually quite easy. You listen for Santa flying by on his sleigh with his reindeer and when he is in the center, press your left control key to fire your paintballs at him. If you are quick enough on the draw, you can hit Santa 4 or 5 times in one pass racking up the points. Each time you hit him, you get 1 point. However, each time you miss him, you lose a point! To hear your current score at any time, press the shift key.
When Santa gets close to the one side of the screen, you have to try to turn Santa around and keep him on the screen! You do this by pressing the associated arrow key to zap him with your taser gun (which makes you wonder why the boy even got presents from Santa in the first place!). If Santa is heading left, press your left arrow key to point your taser gun towards the left. He will head back the other way crossing your center again for you to splat him a few more good ones! You can't turn on your taser gun to early on him so you have to wait until he gets close enough to the edge of the screen and then keep hitting either the left or right arrow key depending on which side he is heading toward.
Though Bsc closed forever in March of 2013, Daniel Zingaro has agreed their titles can be made abandonware, and now all are available at the above link on the Audiogames archive. Also be sure to check the page for some tips on running the games on more modern versions of Windows.
