|Dani and Chris showdown!|
|Thumbs up from Dani, Atari pads taste nasty.|
The game doesn't suffer from any slow down, even when each player has left trails of bombs all over the place. The graphics are stable and we did not notice any weirdness or instabilities whilst playing in 4 player mode. It's hard to believe that a geriatric computer like the C64 can cope, but it does flawlessly.
Game play is exactly as you would expect from a commercial release of a 'bomber' game, fast and frantic with moments of tension when the competitors have been whittled down.
Learning the power ups is essential as we each gravitated towards various strategies, Chris favoured remote mines and trapping people, Dani favoured huge blast zones, Michelle went bezerk and I simply ran around laying bombs in long lines like a chicken on speed.
What else can we say? If you love Multiplayer that involves actual proximity to other humans, just buy it, and while your at it grab that 4 player user port adapter you never had an excuse to buy - because now you have the best excuse possible.
Bomberland is everything we wanted it to be - and so much more.
