Bomb Diver

Author Comments

Use your jetpack and grenade launcher to keep your city safe from falling bombs!

This game combines aspects of missile command, avoiders, collectors, and chain reaction genres all in a nice little retro arcade package. It even has a few original chiptunes I composed for it.

Features 10 waves, 6 different bombs types, multiple powerups, an upgrade shop, and an ever growing city!

Every level consists of three stages. First you'll go sky diving and avoid the dropping bombs, then use your parachute and collect the balloons to get more ammo. When you've safely landed on the ground, the goal is to shoot all incoming bombs to protect your city.

Note: The shooting mechanism works like Missile Command, so the explosion happens exactly where you've shot, not when it hits a bomb.

EDIT #1: Hey, thanks everyone for helping 'Bomb Diver' hit the #3 spot on the frontpage today! I really appreciate it. I'll have a patch to the game coming today for some minor things I've been getting feedback about so far.

EDIT #2: Small update to v1.0.3: You can now use the collected health kits and power ups by clicking the icon buttons at the top of the screen, the cursor while flying has more contrast, and I've tried to make the pause screen better. I'll have another update tomorrow with a few other minor things.

EDIT #3: Two things, first I see Bomb Diver made it to the featured game list, thanks Tom! Second, I've got another small patch of the game to v1.0.4: You can now restart the current wave at anytime from the pause menu (ESC), changed a few other minor text confusions, also some small bug fixes and polish tweaks. Thanks again to everyone who is playing and leaving your constructive feedback, I really appreciate it!

EDIT #4: Tiny bug fix to v1.0.5. You can now reach full left and right side of screen when you are on the ground (to get all the money bags.)

HybridMind responds:


Great twist on a classic!

HybridMind responds:

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.

Beat it and this game was awesome while listening to Rush!.

HybridMind responds:

That's great!

Although the game's premise (i.e., storyline and setting) doesn't make any sense, the gameplay is pretty well made, with just the right amount of challenge, time needed to complete, and balance of items and powerups.

HybridMind responds:

Yeah, the game's premise is (and was intended to be) as ridiculous and over-the-top as possible. Basically I wanted to make a game around the name "Bomb Diver" which had popped into my head. I started thinking of how ludicrous I could make it. I am pretty happy with the results! ;) Glad you dig the mechanics and balance of the game. Thanks for playing!
