What parents need to know

Super Bomberman R2 takes the classic concept of the Bomberman series started 40 years ago and adds many variations to bring it up to date.

A classic Bomberman game is played this way, each player embodies a character called Bomberman who moves in 2 dimensions on a chessboard. This chessboard is composed of destructible blocks, non-destructible blocks, maluses, bonuses and traps. Characters have the ability to place a bomb on this chessboard. This bomb will create a cruciform explosion after a few seconds, which can destroy the destructible blocks but also some traps, other characters, as well as oneself.

The whole game is then to place your bombs well to trap the opponents while avoiding all explosions. The game ends when only one Bomberman remains in the arena. He is then the winner of this round. You can accumulate bonuses in the arenas to increase the effects of the bombs, throw them through the streets, kick them, increase the number of bombs you carry, get a shield, protect yourself from a single explosion, etc.

Over the years, the Bomberman series has been released on all media, has known about fifty games and just as many trials, errors, and iterations. It is therefore yet another attempt to bring the Bomberman series up to date, which was nevertheless a must for evenings with friends in the 1990s, and which then fell into disuse with several failed opuses.
