Brilliant Game, Brilliant Fun.,
This review is from: Bomberman (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I remember Bomberman from years ago. Very simple concept. You and some friends (and the computer) control little guys who place bombs in an attempt to destroy your opponents. When bombs go off, if they hit walls the wall gets destroyed and there is a chance there good be a bonus item. Exploding bombs that hit other bombs set them off too, allowing for disastrous chain reactions which can quickly put the end to many opponents.
Some of the items that you can collect are:
1) More bombs, so that you can drop more than 1 bomb at any one time. The more you have, the more chance you run the risk of nuking yourself.
2) More power. Increases the blast radius of your bombs
3) Trainers. Increases the speed of your character
4) Remote Control. Allows you to detonate your bombs yourself, *when* you want to, rather than the usual timer (around 3 seconds).
There are many many other items (some bad) that you can pick up.
It's an incalculable amount of fun, and the single-card multiplayer wireless play makes it very easy to jump straight in to and enjoy.
If you have a DS, this should be the game you buy to have fun.
