BombSquad is a cute little game about blowing up your friends. It has existed on the Mac, Linux and Ouya since 2011 and only recently made its way to the Android platform. In fact, BombSquad was at the second place on Ouya’s O-Rank list. Bomb Squad is a series of mini-games which can be played with up to 8 local/networked players. There are a variety of these mini-games like Capture-the-Flag, King-of-the-Hill, Bomber-Hockey and Elimination. The Epic mode makes use of slow motion to make everything well, more epic.
The animation is simply delightful. There are a wide range of tiny characters like insane chefs, ninjas, barbarians and pirates that you guide around level maps which look like they came out of a toy box. The initial tutorial level takes place on what can only be described as a Play-doh mushroom of sorts. Other maps look like miniature hockey boards or look like they are made out of wooden bricks.
The gameplay is simple; you can punch your enemies or use bombs to destroy them. The characters hold the bombs over their heads and these explode if you hold them for too long. The controls are in the form of an on-screen joystick to the right of the screen and four buttons to the right which make the player pick up the bomb, punch, dash or detonate the bomb. The multiplayer mode ensures that you can have endless hours of fun with your pals. The menus and interface also look like they were made out of plastic clay. The game can also be played on Android TV with a compatible gamepad. For the gamepad, you just need to download the companion ‘BombSquad Remote’ app on your phone or tablet. Play this game for hours of multiplayer party fun. Bomb’s away!
