Bomb Frenzy (爆弾フレンジー meaning "Bakuhatsu Kyōran" in Japan) is a puzzle game for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the first game in the Bombell series and is developed by Shooting Star Studios. The game will be released in 2013.
Bombell was a normal, little Bomb Boo, but he didn't know how to use his explosive powers. The other Boos just made fun of him, and he left the mansion. Few days later, Bombell met a very shy and smart Boo, called Booster, and they became best friends. Booster went to his laboratory with Bombell to show him some of his experiments. While Booster was distracted, Bombell took one of the potions. Booster saw Bombell with the potion and shouted him not to touch that, and Bombell accidentally droped the potion, sprinkling on him. When Bombell awoke, he noticed he was different, he was bigger and he felt stronger. Now, thanks to Booster's potion, Bombell has explosive and more stronger powers than any normal Bomb Boo.
After getting his powers. Bombell and Booster saw some Mushroom-like people being attacked by Bombx. The citizens told Bombell and Booster that an evil ghost is trying to take control on the Mushroom World by sending his Bombx to attack everywhere while he prepares his final plan. Now, Bombell and Booster start an adventure to stop the evil Shadem and his Bombx with the help of other friends.
Gameplay and Rules
Bombell, as the main protagonist and hero, alongside his friends, have to save the Mushroom Grasslands from Shadem, the main antagonist. He's sending his Bombx to attack the Grasslands. Now, Bombell and his friends must save the kingdom. You play as Bombell, and you can help him by destroying the Bombx. To do so, the player has to send and control different colored Bomblobs (which are good Bombs commanded by Bombell) and destroy Bombx. Players must do this before the Bombx explodes, if this happens, it will vanish Bomblobs surrounding them and will release more Bombx. These Bombs can be placed in lines to take away Bombx and get much more points.
Bomblobs have to be lined in groups of 3 or more, in the same color, so they could explode and destroy nearby Bombx. If you destroy all the Bombx and the level finishes, you win the level, but if the Bombx reach the top of the level, you lose.
