"Recently off the heels of several impressive commercial beta trials (Heroes of Might and Magic III, Heretic II), I decided to take a laid back approach to December. Glancing through the open source opportunities and my overflowing Inbox, I came across an ambitious Bomberman remake, known simply as Bomb ô Bomb."
"Based on the classic arcade game which has survived since the 80's, Bomb ô Bomb has entered into what seems a crowded marketplace - with console releases such as Atomic Bomberman (Figure 1, Windows 95/98, Nintendo 64) and Bomberman Hero (Sony Playstation), Bomb ô Bomb finds itself competing against well established Linux open-source similarities - in particular Clanbomber, which I personally feel will provide Bomb ô Bomb with a serious hurdle to clear."
"Bomberman is rather a simple concept - with several modes that differ between releases, the common options that have survived over the years are the ever popular battle tournaments against AI players, and multiplayer deathmatches where up to 10 people can blow each other up."
