Windows Phone Game Review - Bomberman vs. Zombies

Bomberman vs Zombies for Windows Phone

Zombies just can't catch a break on our Windows Phone. We're constantly hunting them down and ruining their day. Bomberman vs. Zombies is no different but instead of shooting the Zombies up, your blasting them to smithereens. Bomberman vs. Zombies has seen a fair amount of success on the Blackberry and Android platforms. Success the developers hope will carry over to Windows Phone.

Bomberman vs Zombies Help

Bomberman vs. Zombies calls for you to navigated through a maze, dropping bombs to clear your path as well as taking out the zombies. Controlling your Bomberman is done by a virtual joystick that rests in the bottom left corner of the screen. Your bomb controls are at the opposite side of the screen's bottom.  You can go into the settings and enlarge the joystick/directional pad and swap the orientation of the movement and bomb controls.

Tap the bomb control to place your bomb and get out of the way. The fuse gives you about three seconds to get away and blast zone is a one square radius. The goal is to blow up all the zombies to open up a portal to advance to the next level. You have five lives to lose before the game ends.

Bomberman vs Zombies game screen

There are three types of zombies to battle (slow, fast, and those that can teleport) as well as bats, skull and coffins to contend with. To help you out there are a handful of bonuses that include bomb control, extra life, speed and shield.

All in all, Bomberman vs. Zombies is a nice platform game for your Windows Phone. The controls do take a bit to get used to and don't be surprised if you blow yourself up with the first few bombs you place. Bomberman vs. Zombies does have a Scoreloop leaderboard to let you brag about how many zombies you take out.

There are two versions of Bomberman vs. Zombies available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. You have a free, ad-supported version that you can find here and a Premium, ad-free, version that is currently $.99 which you can find here at the Marketplace.

Sometimes the controls go wonky at the wrong moment, and the 'teleporting' zombie is a bloody cheat :P Haha but it's quite a good game... Good for Bomberman nostalgia

aphrophyre says:

Wont they get Sued for using the name & game mechanics of the ACTUAL bomberman?
If not sued, at least a cease & desist. This doesnt appear to be a licensed game in any way, shape, or form.

schlubadub says:

For using 'bomberman' perhaps. There've been many clones before this...

aphrophyre says:

Certainly for using Bomberman.
Clearly they could have chosen a different name, this is just irresponsible and a bait & switch tactic, even if the game is routed in Bomberman game mechanics.

Any ideas on why the game requires access to my location?

schlubadub says:

The free version? Adverts

blackfire says:

It should not be the case. The free trial of the WPCentral app has ads, and it doesn't require access to location.
