I'm Gaming Jay: Youtube gamer, let's player, retrogaming fan, and determined optimist... Join me in this series while I try out EVERY game in the book 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE, before I die. The game review for each game will focus on the question of whether you MUST play this game before you die. But to be honest, the game review parts are just for fun, this series is more about the YouTube gamer journey. So let's play those classic retro games we grew up with, have fond memories of, or heard of but never got a chance to try! And with that said, the game review for today is...
Developer(s) Hudson Soft
Platform(s) TurboGrafx-16 / PC Engine, NES, etc.
Genre(s) Action, Maze
Bomberman is one of those iconic video game characters that almost everyone knows, even if they're not totally familiar with his games. And if you aren't familiar with this game let me just say shame on you. You definitely should give this one a shot.
Bomberman is labyrinth-based action game that revolves around bombs (surprise, surprise). The game starts off with a maze of bricks and numerous dead ends. Bomberman has the ability to place bombs in the maze however, that break apart walls and thus, expand the play area. Sometimes power ups get revealed and these can do a range of things from making your bombs more powerful to letting you place multiple bombs at the same time to granting you the power to kick bombs.
From this simple gameplay, emerges the real challenge: using your bombs to kill friends and enemies alike. In Bomberman, you'll spend most of your time trying to place bombs strategically, and time them just right so that they wipe out your foes. You can even get fancy with chain reactions or booting a bomb across a screen at your opponent. Though be careful, as if you get careless with your bombs, you can end up killing yourself in the process!
Bomberman is ultimately loads of fun with friends. Though I did find the single-player missions to be a little slow. They weren't bad, but they really weren't that great, especially compared to the chaos that is multiplayer. Bomberman is really a game that's meant to be played with friends. So go rally your pals already and give this one a shot!
➙ Must You Play It?
Bomberman is a classic retro game that's worth a play. Though I actually find the gameplay a bit random, it's still loads of fun with your friends. The single player is decent though less engaging than the multiplayer, but all in all, still a game everyone should try at least once.
