Games with bombs in

Post by merman » Mon Jul 29, 2013 12:59 pm

Ah, the humble bomb. Whether you are racing to defuse the master villain's little surprise or dodging the deadly projectiles thrown at you, they are a staple of gaming.

So what are your favourite games with bombs in?

Er.....Bomberman. Specifically Saturn Bomberman and Super Bomberman 5.

Also some of the Zelda games and there were the Bob-omb's in Super Mario 64. I forget if they were also in the earlier ones.

I loved Super Bomberman and Bomberman 64. Shame the newer titles are dead online as multiplayer is great fun

Super Mario Bros. Bob-oms are probably my favourite videogame bombs. Although they did annoy me intensly in New Super Mario Bros Wii.

I don't think they were in the first Super Mario game were they?

I like the bomb in Darius Gaiden - that bomb is so cool, it creates a black hole!

Spy Vs Spy had some great uses for the humble bomb.

Crackdown on the Megadrive...plant the bombs, shoot some bad guys, get Mr.X and get the hell out of there before your bombs go off

Enjoy the game but cant get very far into it..

Deactivators on the Spectrum. I picked up the tape from a bargain bin not expecting great things of it, but it turned out to have quite the hook. It doesn't look like much, but it runs nice and smooth and the gameplay all comes from the level design. In theory its a simple puzzle game with a timer, but it manages to escalate itself above that (or at least do it to a better standard).

From modern gaming, I'll pick Bomber HeHe on the Dreamcast. I'm not normally one to play foreign language games, but who doesn't want to blow up buildings?

Hard to think of a better seires with bombs in than Zelda, at least for me. Though there is Metroid too, and Mario.

The proximity mines in Goldeneye 64 could be pretty devilish, especially when somebody put them on a door or something like that, all good fun though.

Oh speaking of multiplayer games, lets not forget the Worms series, plenty of bombage going on there, banana bombs, holy hand grenades, exploding sheep, and of course the nuke.

Split Personalities - top game

Yes Deactivators is great , and then there's also Bombuzal which is neat.

Just watched a video on the AVGN's YouTube channel about Kaboom! It looks incredible. The guy playing it was just totally spaced out and he was keeping up with it on level 5 or 6, which just looked insanely fast.

What does this game do to people?!
