Be warned however: Blazing Lazers is one long game. Bomberman is fun to play with friends, and even better if they're drinking. The graphics are good check out the audience on the bottom of the screen , and the creepy ghouls come in an amazing variety. The screen scrolls in all directions as our cartoonish hero scampers around the maze-like alleys of Gotham City. The opening stage looks inviting with its volcanic scenery and bright blue skies. First, the grenades have to land pretty much directly on an enemy to blow him up, which stinks.
The ominous music and chilling sound effects also contribute to the bleak atmosphere. © Copyright 2015 The Video Game Critic. Bonk is a short-tempered, bald-headed cave-boy who jumps, swims, and head-butts his way through a cartoonish prehistoric world. My friend Chris joked that this was the reason why the game was never released in the States. These make it a lot easier to navigate the high-speed, narrow tunnels of stage two. Your goal with these is to clean paintings by wiping off graffiti, and it's oddly satsifying. On paper, this would appear to be the ultimate Bonk game, but a few flaws detract from the overall experience.
Your goal in the first set of stages is to collect items like green prescription bottles and orange boxes, and I like that handy counter in the lower corner. The action gets off to a rough start as you navigate a graveyard while avoiding golf balls and pools of acid. The stages are fairly short but after 12 helpings of Gotham City I was wondering if there were other locations. The two-player mode is an absolute mess, but the single player mode is worth a shot, allowing you to compete against gravity in a series of obstacle-laden arenas. In addition to the fun and challenging platforming gameplay, Ninja Spirit also looks incredible and really takes advantage of what the TurboGrafx-16 can do. You play the role of cousin Alfred Tully who is looking to cash in on the Addams' family fortune.
Jumping on flowers reveals bonus items and chunks of meat serve as power-ups. A confirmation scream or at least a grunt would have been nice. The backgrounds are a little plain, but that's part of their charm. This game itself is best described as Batman meets Intellivision, 1982. The stages are surprisingly diverse, and sometimes you can even enter a house or cave to locate extra bonuses.
But a team of cool, sunglass-wearing warriors lead by Zonk have discovered his plot and have risen against him. © Copyright 2010 The Video Game Critic. Some balloons drop special items you can collect, including some that increase your firepower or freeze the balloons in place for a few seconds. Collecting certain icons let you move faster, plant more bombs at a time, or extend the radius of your explosions. Bravoman might seem ridiculous at first, but after a while you start to admire its unbridled goofiness. In one of the more creative stages you enter a T-Rex's mouth and proceed to work your way through his entire digestive track! Then you're forced to fight Uncle Fester while being inundated with spiders and bats.
Bonk 3 marks the final chapter of Bonk, but it may give you a bad case of deja-vu. Unfortunately they did not use the actors from the movie for the voices, and that's obvious. Bonk 3's gameplay retains the same dinosaur-headbutting and climbing-with-your teeth gameplay, but this time things get a little weird. Not only does it support up to five players at a time! Oh well, it's not perfect but Bloody Wolf does enough right to earn a solid recommendation. Additionally, the visuals look absolutely gorgeous from an art standpoint.
Besides that major flaw, the game is simply too easy. The sound effects are outstanding and the orchestrated sci-fi music is also well done. In order to hit one of them you have to place yourself in their line of fire! So much for realism right? Be sure to eat your meat and vegetables as you power up to battle Evil King Drool himself. The opening stage is very inviting with its sunny harbor view. Bonk 3's music is not exceptional, but it's certainly an improvement over Bonk 2.
The casual gamer , however could still pick this one up and have a good time. From the creepy organ music, to the booming thunder, to the cackle of laughter, the audio is absolutely first-rate. Bloody Wolf excels with the same type of twitch gameplay that made Rambo and Ikari Warriors so much fun. I also don't like how you're required to locate the exit even after clearing all ghosts, which can be a tedious exercise. Bomberman makes for one hell of a party game as players plant bombs around a maze and then attempt to flee the ensuing explosions and chain reactions.

It's an idea that's never been done before, and never will be done again God willing. Clown thugs materialize all over the place and your only means of attack is tossing batarangs to daze them. Your one-man army is equipped with a machine gun and grenades, but you'll soon find far more effective weapons including shotguns, bazookas, and flamethrowers.
As the first entry in a storied franchise, this is a key title for Turbografx collectors. The flipper control is responisve, but the nudge control isn't very effective. It has a few blemishes but on the whole Bonk's Revenge does a fine job of expanding the scope while retaining the spirit of the original game. There's a torture chamber with traps, a conservatory with man-eating plants, a haunted dining hall, and a room with a running train. You view the action from a tilted overhead perspective so there's not much to see.
