Excerpt: It’s the Grand Opening of Bomber Island, an Amusement Park with tons of attractions! You’ll find non-stop excitement as you explore the island, unlock its secrets, and challenge your friends to a variety of games! But, beware of Cap’n Boom and his band of Bomber Pirates! Bomberman Land Touch! will be the first Bomberman Land to make it on American borders. Bomberman Land is very popular in Japan, and due to it’s success, America is getting it on the Nintendo DS.
Excerpt: Bomberman Land Touch! is not what you think it is. Yes, it has the Bomberman name attached and features the iconic Bomberman character, but this isn’t the game of mazes and bombs you grew up playing. Instead, the premise here is to explore an island theme park and play a bunch of bomb related mini-games similar to what you might find in WarioWare .
Excerpt: During the GCN generation, two Bomberman games were released. They had two things in common. One, their single player modes were decent, but not very exciting. Two, their multiplayer modes were engaging and worthy of much playing time. Such seems to be the Bomberman way. As such, one might wonder why they bother with a separate single player mode at all since people only care about the multiplayer.
Excerpt: Bomberman is too cool for school. Everyone knows that. But part of his appeal is the fact that all he does is chuck bombs around. Developers have tried to put him in games that have a plot or that don't rely heavily on bomb-throwing but they never work. Why? Well, they try too hard to mimic the gameplay of the multiplayer mode. And they use more realistic circular bomb explosions. Rubbish.
