Bombtastic v. 0.62

Submitted by Beast(TrOg)
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Bombtastic is a remake of my old game, Bombers.
The map is protected

You and other spontaneous people decide to play with explosives. It ends up that a couple of the participants went trigger-happy and started blowing everything up. You must end their lives using your available resources before they end yours.

Create explosives and blow them up and hope they hit your opponents; simple but dangerous.

notes on this version (.60 to .62):
This is a test-run version. It includes a new way that bombs are created and a basic outline of a few new features. New features coming include: some objects being damaged by bombs, random events, and attribute bonuses. In further versions, you may level up your abilities and stats of your bombs; until then, no hero gains ability level-ups anymore. You may also notice that your drop-ships DO NOT collide with everything yet.

    I make a quick check and it seems to be fine, as for now. Approve

    Really cool mini-game i liked it, suggestions are: add a blink/disarm bombs and spice up the terrain some up won'tcha? Sure, it looks fine but it's all flat and not that many obstacles (maybe have the host choose an option like that) Next could have the game focus on the terrain that the games taking place in? (Action--->Camera---->Set Camera Bounds "Map region") And finally a multiple round mode with a point system (like 5 games to win) would be cool rather then increase death time by 7 seconds.

    And you got the rest, AI would be really cool and the items are somewhat dull.

    Overall though great job and good luck with the map :)

    Thanks for the comment.
    I was going to focus on more terrain later but forgot to say it. (Current ones were from the old version as well) I'm still juggling around how though because if the game is still like before, it's somewhat hard to kill already.

    As for the camera bounds thing, I tried it before but the minimap looked strange so I removed it.

    Personally, I like the death timer increase thing, instead of rounds. This way, the first to die does not have to wait 5 or 15 minutes for the round to end.

    Edit:
    Huge update: New terrain, items and many fixes

    Awesome, new updates i'll try em' out, but on the first version did you remove the second hero for red (for the little cinematic you had, he could choose a hero and still had a blood mage in the large arena plus the chosen one)

    - maybe; but for now I can't recall

    - yes, that was removed like after a day you first commented, when I realized he was still there(which was testing a spell)
    - I hope you enjoy the new updates, it's almost a new game in itself

    Very original, simple, fun to play. All the makings of a great game. 4.5/5. Follow some of Royy's suggestions and it's an easy 5.

    Nice MAP!

    Omg Awesome map, I am glad to see it updated after all these years.

    Here is a short review on the pro's, con's and things you could add to make the map better.
    PROS:

    • Many heroes
    • No bugs
    • Everything seemed to work
    • Everything balanced


    CONS:
    • Bombs auto explode
    • Terrain is kinda boring
    • Heroes level but don't seem to do much when they level
    • Hard to get a hero to go near a bomb


    Confusing stuff:
    • Why does when an agility hero level they get 1 point in intelligence and not agility?


    • Stuff you could add to make map awesomer:

      • Add hero abilities each time they level we get to choose what abilities they learn (Such abilities could be improve bomb strength, or bomb delay or something)
      • Add an explode ability to heroes, so that they can explode there bombs when they want (For example they click it and all bombs explode, good for when heroes are on bombs.)
      • Make it easier to kill heroes
      • Add more doodads round the terrain and pretty it up some of the terrains are just bland
      • Add AI so if you can't get a full house or are playing LAN then the map has more people and makes it harder
      • Random events the map chooser can enable this by type -random on or -random off (These random events would happen every minute or 2 and would cast a random event such as; all bombs on the map explode, a random here gets frozen for a small amount of time, a random hero gets slowed down for a short period of time etc)


      Awesome map and very very fun,
      Lag_Reviews :p

      PS: You have a unique hero arena map, keep up the good work and I can't wait for the heroes that are coming soon to be added :p

    Thanks for the suggestions Lag_Reviews.
    My view on some of your critiques:

    CONS:
    • Bombs auto explode I personally like it :( especially when I worked extra on doing it
    • Terrain is kinda boring I agree, but I have little ideas of how to make it better (I'm not a terrainer)
    • Heroes level but don't seem to do much when they level Correct. I will add stuff for it.
    • Hard to get a hero to go near a bomb New creation ability added!

    Confusing stuff:

    [*]Why does when an agility hero level they get 1 point in intelligence and not agility? Earlier, the only thing different from heroes were their bomb stats. The only factor needed then was mana, so heroes only gained Intelligence.

    Stuff you could add to make map awesomer:

    • Add hero abilities each time they level we get to choose what abilities they learn (Such abilities could be improve bomb strength, or bomb delay or something) Coming..
    • Make it easier to kill heroes Done with update (I think)
    • Add more doodads round the terrain and pretty it up some of the terrains are just bland tough..
    • Add AI so if you can't get a full house or are playing LAN then the map has more people and makes it harder tougher..
    • Random events the map chooser can enable this by type -random on or -random off (These random events would happen every minute or 2 and would cast a random event such as; all bombs on the map explode, a random here gets frozen for a small amount of time, a random hero gets slowed down for a short period of time etc) maybe..


    Oh and thanks for another compliment, Conlan!

    Glad to see you liked my review and added some of my suggestions into your game.

    I see that some of m suggestions are hard to do, but if you keep at it I reckon this map would be awesomer than it already is.

    I can't wait for the hero abilities and I am glad you made it a bit easier to kill heroes with bombs.

    Keep up the excellent work,
    Lag_Reviews :D
