Dyna Bomb Review Cons:

  • Definitely looks like a mobile game upsized to a console game.
  • Hit detection is a bit dodgy at times.
  • Doesn’t explain how purchases are constant.
  • Menus are so basic they don’t actually tell you immediately what their functionality is.
  • Mobile game-looking menus.
  • No online leaderboards.
  • No camera control means an enemy can kinda sneak up on you.

I really enjoyed playing Dyna Bomb, sure it looks and plays like a mobile game upscale to console. To be honest that’s fine because the gameplay is solid fun if only in short bursts. You play as one of two characters, you then need to find a key and get to the exit. Dyna Bomb has a knack for being a modern game having the feeling of a retro game, could be the simple nature of the gameplay loop or the music accompanying the graphic style but either way, it’s a game that is fun to play. Dyan Bomb never really pushes itself forward and instead relies on its one-hit death system but it does have a certain charm to it. I don’t hate it and I don’t love it, Dyna Bomb is a prime example of a middle ground game that will do a good job of entertaining you albeit in short bursts.

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!
