Player One:
WASD to move, J to place bomb, K to mine dirt

It looks like it would have been a really fun Bomberman-clone if you had more time to work on it. I had the chance to try with a second player, and it was fun. Some simple additions like a way to restart the level or tally a score would have made all the difference. Also, the way the characters bounce against objects is pretty disorienting.

I've seen your screens about it, let's see that you could do.

Bouncing is funny, graphics are neat, gameplay is promising! But how is it related to the the? Still, 5 overall!

nice bomberman tribute. I really like the walking sound effect - it fits just right with that retro gaming style.

Nice twist on bomberman. Oil barrels were a good addition to help keep the pace up with the single bomb at a time restriction.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
