  • Summary: Bombastic puts you in control of a veritable minefield of explosive, moving dice. Roll the dice around the field to link them in like combinations. Once they connect, the dice are detonated and will explode. Don?t get too close as the explosion will knock you into next week. The object is to clear each Bombastic level. Be careful! The action gets harder and harder as you go along! Over seven modes of play include Standard, Attack, Limited, Quest Mode, Classic, War and more! So many ways to play! So little time! Get ready to go Bombastic! [Capcom] Expand

    For anybody with even a minor bit of gaming background, this is a highly addictive, incredibly brilliant puzzler that has enough depth, ingenuity and depth to keep you going for months.
  2. It's a great puzzler. Definitely a little weird, but most certainly good. [Sept 2003, p.109]
  3. If twisting your mind into knots sounds like fun, you'll love Bombastic. [Oct 2003, p.40]
  4. The logic is complex, and the pacing is manic, but if you commit to the concept, the experience is undeniably exhilarating.
  5. While the controls and the inability to use the analog stick can be difficult, Bombastic is a solid puzzle game with a lot of different game modes and replay value for people who enjoy a challenge.
  6. While what's here is very good, the problem is that there are perhaps twenty seconds of original composition in the whole game! The rest just loops for all eternity, prodding you to skip past menu after menu just so you can escape the irritation of not-quite-grinding guitar and the like.
  7. The game's fun however depends on the players' knowledge of how a six-sided die can be manipulated to have the desired number on its top face. It's not easy to do, and only after that hurdle is crossed can players enjoy any aspect of the game.

    Bombastic is a very clever puzzle game. You have to run/roll around a die to create explosions(like Bomberman) and score points. Along with your usual high scores and multiplayer, the game has a quest mode. It's fairly short, but challenging and worth a try. The graphics could be better, and the game length could be longer. Regardless, it makes rolling around a die more fun than ever! Expand
