Bomberman For iPod Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room recently posted a new review of Bomberman, one of several new titles 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. The Game Room gave Bomberman a score of 4.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Everything happens in a 2-D world, where you see the action from overhead. Bobble-headed Bomberman makes his way through the maze, which changes from level to level, chased relentlessly by enemies. If the enemies touch him, he dies. Bomberman can set off bombs wherever he wants, but if he doesn’t scoot out of the way of the blast fast enough, he, too, will be flamed and will lose a life.

Powerups imbue Bomberman with special abilities—Fire Up increases the blast radius by one square, for example, while Bomb Up lets you increase the number of bombs you can set. There’s a Speed Up tile you can grab, along with an extra life tile.

Among the maze there are “Soft Blocks”—bricks you can destroy by planting bombs near them. This is handy for accessing new parts of the maze, which you may need to do to destroy enemies or grab powerups. And once you’ve cleared the level, a Warp Panel will activate to take you to the next one.

That’s pretty much all there is to the basic gameplay Bomberman, which is why it’s so addictive. And its basic 2-D gameplay—you control him up, down, left and right, and plant bombs—is ideal for the iPod’s Click Wheel interface.
