The new Konami Bomberman tries to recreate a classic technique ...

With the dual release of Saturn Bomberman and Super Bomberman 64, Konami unveiled a fresh spin on Bomberman, a competitive blast-em-up series that arguably reached a peak in 1997, that appears to be quite different from previous attempts to revive the franchise. Amazing Bomberman, as its name implies, retains the classic top-down gameplay of the finest Bomberman games but adds a musical twist.

Amazing Bomberman is a game that includes sights and sounds that are similar to Pac-Man Championship Edition, Space Invaders Extreme, and Tetris Effect, all classic games reinvented with stylish visual and aural flair. The gameplay in Amazing Bomberman is a bit more intense, with videos and musical effects that will alter the game stages in response to the beat.

Amazing Bomberman will have seven stages at its premiere, each with their own original music from Japan and abroad, while the series' classic power-up graphics for the game remain the same.

When Amazing Bomberman launches later this week, the game will be available exclusively on Apple Arcade. It's available on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, and Mac. A subscription to Apple Arcade costs $4.99 per month and includes Apple Ones Individual ($14.95), Family ($19.95), and Premier ($29.95) monthly plans.
