Have you ever wanted to play Bomberman as a Tetris-style dropping blocks puzzle game? Well Hudson thinks you have, and their answer is Panic Bomber. You can either play against a series of classic Bomberman enemies or take on a friend in the two-player simultaneous mode.
Blocks of three Bomberman heads of various colors drop from the top of the screen in an L shape. You must rotate and arrange them in some sort of order when they land at the bottom of the screen. The object is to create a row of three or more Bomberman heads vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Once you do this, the heads disappear and are replaced by a series of inert black bombs.
You will sometimes have to place one of these dropping black bombs during play. The bombs can be detonated externally but do not explode themselves. The game also drops pulsing red bombs from time to time, which will explode when placed. They can also set off a chain reaction by detonating black bombs.
Play continues until one of the Bomberman head piles reaches the top of the screen, at which point the game is over. In two-player mode, players can sabotage each other by making chains or otherwise destroying many of their Bomberman heads in one move; this action sends a block of inert black bombs to the bottom of the opposing player's screen. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
