BOOM

Version 2.0.6

Set bombs while maneuvering through mazes.

BOOM overview

BOOM will take you back to the days of classic arcade game Bomberman? In fact, even if you don't remember Bomberman, you won't be disappointed by Boom. BOOM is an arcade game in the grand tradition, bringing the playability and feel of the glorious 8-bit consoles on the Mac. As a space marine your mission is to penetrate 8 alien infested areas, each one divided in 10 sub-zones, eliminate all enemies using your bombs and finally kick the Big Alien Boss back to where he came from.

Not a review but just a comment. This software has the same name as the audio program named Boom on the App store.

I played this so much as a kid on an old boxy mac... It feels weird to see have it on my Macbook today. Tons of fun, especially when two players share the same cramped keyboard and start to panic when swamped by aliens. Worth every cent.

Having played the previous version for some time, I knew after my first game in v 2.1 that the developer did make Boom more difficult to master; I've never advanced very far through the levels but now, my scores are lower than before. The game will kick yourass with the greatest of ease. Anyway, a rather pleasant diversion, albeit quite a frustrating one. As a previous commenter pointed out, getting trounced and then starting from the beginning over and over again does get to be a big drag. Still, Boom is a keeper. V2.1 has got some bugs but the developer has been alerted. Hope the developer has the balls to remain totally independent and keep everything "in house" including marketing and sales. I'd much rather deal directly with the developer rather than slosh around in the MacCrap Store cesspool.

Old school style arcade game....I found it good fun for a while but gets tedious after playing many games since, like most games, one has to start again at square one over and over and plod back trying for a higher score, which DOES get to be a real drag, at least for me. Still, at just $10, it's a bargain for one of the better arcade style games. Yeah, it's 'an oldy but a goody'.

A definite classic that should stay just the way it is. Loads of fun for arcade lovers and retro-gamers!

MU admin: clicking the Download now link only seems to reload this page. Problem doesn't persist when downloading from developer's site. Thanks for your time and attention. :)

This is positively one of the best arcade games I've played on the Mac. It's super fun to play in 2-player mode with your girlfriend. It's so fun that girls actually like it too!
