Mine Bombers is a fun action game designed for two or more players, although a single player mode is included. Think of it as two-player version of Bomberman and you'll have a good idea of what it's about. Basically your job is to blow up your opponent in a mine by using various weapons, while collecting treasures that will allow you to buy more destructive equipment. The player who has the most money at the end of the game is the winner. In addition to treasures, you are also awarded extra money for every "kill". The downside with the playing field being huge (in 16-color 640x480 resolution) is that the players look tiny – it took me a while to even find the little red blob that is my enemy! You'll soon get used to it, though, and after a while the game's excellent gameplay will draw you in. In addition to standard dynamites, you can use flamers and even nukes, which create satisfyingly huge explosions. Sounds effects, especially explosion sounds, deserve mention as something truly exceptional, considering this is a shareware (now released as freeware) title, and really add to the gaming experience.

Overall, if you enjoy games like Liero, give Mine Bombers a try. The single player mode is included, but it's not nearly as fun as the multiplayer mode, since all you have to do is pick your way through fifteen levels filled with monsters. Once you finish the game, you can use a user-friendly level editor to make your own levels to extend its life. Two thumbs up, way up!
