Bomber Online

Says it has 5 player online multiplayer. It looks kind of like bomberman, and it's only .99 cents. Anyone want to sacrifice a buck and see if it's crap or not?

looks good, seemed a little sketchy until i saw who developed it, they do a great job with their multiplayer games, the pool one is really fantastic.

You guys are fast
You can control it either with "swipe" (touch anywhere on the screen and then the player moves relative to the finger) or with virtual keyboard. Players can join the game rounds at any time (and play when the next round starts), so that there should always be people to play with. The servers were able to handle more than 1000 players on Adrenaline Pool, so hopefully they will be fine

wait so is it tap relative to the player? because that seems like a bad control scheme. If you could swipe your finger anywhere on the screen then i would definitely buy it.

It's good. Their aren't very many people playing right now so it's kinda lonely but there is a single player mode. I'm enjoying it and I think it's definitely worth the price. You guys should download it. If you do then add me as a friend. My nickname is Klondike. I'll pwn on ya.

How does it compare to Hudson's official Bomberman game on the iPhone?
In terms of controls (they were very dodgy) and gameplay (no battles/deathmatches, just boring story mode where you have to kill the monsters)
