    Looks really cool.
    It is hard to understand from the video what the gameplay is about.

    I disagree, its basically bomberman in a circle. Seems instantly understandable to me.

    I didn’t understand the gameplay either at first. The problem, I think, is that the explosions don’t look like explosions at all. I though they where some bonus particle effect. Doing a flame and smoke effect so they look like explosions would probably make it instantly clear what the gameplay is about.

    I thought the game looked quite fun. An easy to pick up, party game, sort of :)

    I agree with earlier posters that the explosion effect could be improved, though. For instance, make it more clear who is hit by the explosion (maybe the player could be thrown a bit up in the air).

    Looks like a combination of Bomberman and Poy Poy. Poy Poy was great fun on the PS1, wish they would bring an update to next-gen consoles.

    thanks for the comments :)

    we are making the new version of the game , based on comments that
    people gave us .

    Like the look of explosion , we are putting more particles in it so its going to
    look very well.

    Also we already implemented the higher throw in the air of the player that is hit :)

    and yes we all like the bomberman but i must admit i newer played Poy Poy before but i am looking on the net right now to see it :)
