BOOM is a remake of the classic Bomberman which brings the feel of 8-bit console gaming to the Mac.
The developer describes BOOM as “Bomberman meets Doom”. Your mission is to infiltrate eight alien-infested areas, each one divided in 10 sub-zones. You then have to eliminate all enemies using your bombs and finally, in time-honored arcade style, beat the Big Boss alien.
As you might expect, the graphics in BOOM are very basic, as are the sound effects and soundtrack. There's plenty to keep you going with 80 different levels plus 10 different enemy characters of varying intelligence and weaponry.
BOOM is a lot of a fun to begin with although it soon becomes a bit tedious long before you've reached the latter levels.
