  • Bomberman Panic Bomber (TGX-16), Konami – £7.19 (€7.99)

The ultimate aim of the game is to make your opponent’s field fill up with blocks first! It works like this: as you clear blocks from your field, bombs will start to appear in it. Collect more and more bombs and then when a lit bomb falls from the top, make the whole lot blow up at once. This will send useless rubble blocks over to the opponent’s field and clog it up.

The six stages, which build on those of the previous game, have been carried over faithfully from the arcade version, offering a variety of environments, from a blazing inferno to an asteroid belt, to a minefield of volcanic projectiles. And if things get too tough, a second player can jump in to help in the cooperative 2-player mode!
