Blast Force added to the 8bitrocket Retro Arcade Showcase
Blast Force, a 16-bit era Bomberman style game with some unique features and a whole lot of retro atmosphere has been added to the 8bitrocket Retro Arcade Showcase.
Developer Description (By Zir0):
Blast your way through 11 levels of action. Battle with drones, tanks, and choppers as you prove your the number 1 bomber! By Zir0 (ArcadeBomb)
Use the arrow keys to move up, down, left, and right. Can also move diagonally.
Use space to set bombs.
Use X key to detonate bombs (if you have this ability)
Use C key to pickup and toss bombs (if you have the ability)
Key mapping can be changed in the Options screen at any time.
The high-score system is linked to arcadebomb’s system. There are many subtle details in game play.
8bitrocket take: A very well done Bomberman style game. The graphics look very much like an ST or Amiga 16-bit game circa 1989. The pickup and toss bombs ability really ads something new and improved to this genre.
