Apple Games Features Bomberman For iPod
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has released a new feature article, this one focusing on Bomberman for Apple's iPod multimedia device. In the game players complete levels by avoiding enemies and planting bombs to destroy them. The article includes an overview of the game's features as well as a tips and tricks section to give players an edge.

Bomberman on the iPod takes the classic Hudson Soft game and updates it for the modern era with enhanced graphics and sound, along with three mini games and an iPod-exclusive final boss challenge. You guide the main character through 20 levels of action, planting bombs that destroy enemies and explode soft blocks that reveal power-ups: Fire Up, which increases your bombs’ range by one block; Bomb Up, which allows you to lay down multiple bombs simultaneously; Speed Up, which accelerates your movement; and Life Up, which adds an extra life.

One of the soft blocks in each level also hides the warp panel; touch it after defeating all your enemies and you’ll move on to the next level. After each set of five levels, you’ll encounter one of three mini-games: Bowling for Bombs, in which the pins are bombs that explode only when touched; Bomb Buster, a matching game that requires you to touch the bomb with the same color as the one in the center; and Bomb Rollin’, in which Bomberman must jump from one rolling bomb to the next, getting to the end of the track as fast as possible. Clear a mini-game to earn an extra life.

Once you complete a level or mini-game, you unlock it for revisiting through Challenge mode. See if you can finish a level faster, which results in a larger bonus at the end, or see if you can rack up a higher score in a mini-game. And keep working through all 20 levels to the electrifying conclusion. We promise it will give you a jolt or two.
The full feature article is available at the link provided below.
