Picked this up earlier and I really like it. It is your standard match three but bombs come in to play when chains are created. There a cople of timed modes and a standard mode.

I really like the doodle look and the touch controls are spot on.

The Bomberman+match-3 part is cool. In fact, it would've been enough to make me buy it at $1 if it weren't for the doodle part.

Game Impressions

Like the game, but the animations after you make a match are too slow. I understand you can keep matching in the process but still. Even the bomb explosions are animated too slowly and break up the gameplay too much. Would be a cinch to fix; all you need do is speed up the animations, nothing else, and would improve the gameplay significantly. No clue if that will ever happen though. As is, still not a bad match 3; probably something more for match 3 completists though and bomberman fans than for the average Joe.

I wonder if this will be the last game from Hudson. Shame, I was hoping there would be a revamped Bonk somewhere in the future.

They're both terrible. Neither are the bomberman I've grown to love, with battle royale and everything.

EDIT: I see the second link has battle mode, which I don't think it used to (I've checked these apps multiple times for it). Maybe I found my bomberman itch.
