Bomberman For iPod Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks recently posted a new review of Bomberman, one of the many titles available for Apple's iPod multimedia device. In the game players must use their wits and bombs to make their way to the end of the maze levels without being caught by enemies. Applelinks gave Bomberman a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Like nearly every maze game before and after it, Bomberman has you navigating a little character through a top-down view of a walled room. You're being chased by an assortment of bad guys who get progressively faster and sneakier. Unlike other games, however, you don't eat or shoot your enemies, you bomb them. Power-ups will help you on your way, but it's otherwise just you and your bombs throughout.

And the bombs aren't just for killing; that's not all they do. They also blast holes in the walls to help you work your way through them, and to reveal the secret exits to the next level. This all starts off fairly simply, as the monsters are slow and dumb. After about the fifth level, however, things change drastically; the monsters become much more motivated to prevent Bomberman's escape, and the mazes become harder to navigate. You'll need to find power-ups and learn how to properly use them if you want to survive.
