Canyon Bomber is an arcade game released in 1977. It was ported to the Atari 2600.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player flies aircraft over a canyon full of bricks that you must bomb for points. Since the computer already does the flying, the player has the task of aiming the bombs. Players then compete against the computer or another player for the most points. As fewer targets remain, precise targeting is required to hit them. After a few misses, the game ends.
