Dungeons And Bombs Review (PlayStation 4)

This is a dynamic fusion of classic puzzles with boxes and bombs. When enemies drag people into their dark lair and do their vile deeds there, the hero and his faithful sword always come to the rescue. But what if the hero does not have a sword, but only a lot of enthusiasm and an endless supply of explosives? Well, bad for them. Go through dark labyrinths of dungeons and try not to blast yourself up.

Summary

Short and simple here, this is a puzzle Bomberman game. You have a set amount of moves to rescue your bearded princess, you will have obstacles aplenty and can use Bombs to clear the path but it costs a move to use. Whilst that’s it gameplay-wise, it does play well and looks nice thanks to its retro graphics and CRT filter. I found myself going through it and feeling mixed because it plays well enough but the actual game is plain and with no help or tips system it makes it a hard barrier to entry for those of us less than intelligent. Overall it’s a clear-cut choice, you want a puzzle Bomberman or you don’t but Dungeons and Bombs is a mediocre attempt.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
