BOOM for Mac2.0.6

19 February 2012

Set bombs while maneuvering through mazes.

What is BOOM for Mac

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.

What's new in BOOM

Version 2.0.6:
  • New In-App Store.
  • Fixed a bug in the update check functionality.
  • A few minor bug fixes and code improvements.
  • Updated Help.

The original BOOM only runs well on my older mac. But there is a remake which runs nicely on my newer mac: https://silverweed.github.io/boom

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'.

wow, i first played this game from a macworld cd, or maybe it was macuser, either way it was when i was like 7 (im 18 now). I used to love this game, the two player is cool, and the bosses are even cooler, im not gonnna bother downloading it though, cause ive been there done that got the tshirt bought the hat. What I will say is this, get this game some online support, a couple team based games and ffa modes, and you'll be onto a game you can sell at $25+ Anyway good luck with everything, and if youve never played boom, phone a friend, download it, and get ready for some imp exploding fun!

I was so excited when I saw this game for OSX. After playing it though, I realized that this isn't like the original bomberman-you can walk through the bombs, and the enemies don't set bombs to trap you, they shoot you. This is not nearly as fun as it was...I hope the developer changes this, then I might consider paying to register.

WANTED.....Why is it that the newest version (1.5) doesn't work on my computer? I've tried to upgrade my 1.4.6 version to the 1.5 one, but when I try to launch it my mac tells me: "exception during start up.... error 260". I am no "computer nerd" and therefor have NO IDEA what this means. I only know that my previous version was also destroyed and can not play this "booming" game anymore. Is there somebody out there who can help me fix this problem???? Thanx

Comments below apply to Classic and 10.1.x. Don't go to 1.4.x unless you're running Jag. You'll be sorely disappointed with the mechanics. Find a copy of 1.3 (10.1.x) or 1.2.3 (Classic). These copies should be offered on the site for older versions.

Version 1.4 is VERY unstable. Whereas full screen mode worked in the past, it unexpectedly quits when you start a game in full screen mode. So basically you're limited to small windowed mode, which isn't as cool. The new help menu is a welcome addition, however. I'd recommend you stick with version 1.3; it's the bomb. (Pun intended)

This is a cool game!! In all ways it's a simple kind off game. But I think excactly that is it's strenght! It's a very playable game and I was hooked the first time I played it. Before you finish all 80 levels, it will give you much fun and many hours of playing time. Although with the saving option in the lates version, there's a challenge less....
