In Bomberman Live, players guide their unique Bomberman around a grid-like arena, avoiding opponents and their bombs while attempting to bomb the competition. Bomberman Live features eight multiplayer arenas including Lost World, where players can sink in puddles of quicksand, and Ghost Town, where players can fall into trap doors. By destroying blocks, players can reveal 16 different power-ups (and power-downs!) from the simple “Speed Up” to the devastating “Dangerous Bomb.”
