Bomberman (1983) reviews and comments

Fun! Not world-breaking by today's standards but pretty fun nonetheless.
You play as a bomber-boy bombing some bad balloons that pop YOU. Something makes me think this game is set in Soviet Russia.
The gameplay loop is pretty simple: Look at bloon. Can you put a bomb that will bomb it? No? Bomb wall instead. If not get out of bomb way, bomb break you. That's what they say at least. Simple.

You'd think that'd get boring fast, and you'd be right. But here's the bomb; you can upgrade your bomb to make it bombastically more bombastic.

Overall, rating out of 100:
Story: 0
No, really, what even is going on here? Why is he dressed like that? Why are the balloons sentient and some even actively follow you and BREAK you? Why is he dressed like that? And most importantly, why is he dressed like that? Wait, I think I repeated myself somewhere.

Gameplay: 37
BOOOOOOOOOOOM BABYYYYY! Solid. Solid in fragments.

Graphics: 5
Not too impressive but it's stylized and pretty cute.

Sound/Music: 0
I can't hear anything anymore so I'll just give it a zero.

That leaves this game absolutely POPPIN' with... Uh... Math is hard, man, let's round it up to 40. No, wait, 45. Yeah, 45. Plus 2. Right, 47. Wait that doesn't sound right. Let's remove 3 out of that 47. That'd be... 44. Minus 2. 44 minus 2 is.. Uhhh... 42.
42 out of 400! I should play some math games.
