[PlayStation 4] Dungeons And Bombs Review
Dungeons and Bombs from Sometimes You is a top-down puzzle adventure in which you set out to save the Princess before it’s too late. Check our Dungeons and Bombs review!
In Dungeons and Bombs from Sometimes You, you’ll be taking on a top-down puzzle adventure with a simple goal: to save the Princess. In this game, the Princess, who is known all over the land for her beauty – and her beard – has been kidnapped by tribes of orcs, necromancers and undead, and apostate knights. They snuck into the castle during the night, stealing her from her bedroom, hiding the Princess in the catacombs under the castle. Is there anyone brave enough to save her before it’s too late?
As it turns out, there is a Hero ready for action! Sure, he’s a kleptomaniac and a pyromaniac who loves explosives, but he’s a devout knight of the court, and perhaps these are the qualities needed to save the Princess from those who have kidnapped her. For every stage you take on, the princess will be holding a scroll on the lower right corner of the screen, letting you know how many moves you have left to complete the level and reach the Princess.
The controls are very simple, so that you can focus on solving each of the 50 levels that Dungeons and Bombs has to offer. You’ll move your hero with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, placing bombs as needed with the X buttons. Moving your character counts as using up one move, and the same applies to the bombs that you drop, so you need to time things just right so that you can use bombs to destroy crates on your path, or to wait out for a set of floor spikes to pop out before you can walk closer and closer to the Princess before you run out of moves.
Since this puzzle game has 50 levels to complete, you’d expect the trophies to pop as you finish, say, sets of five stages at a time. Well, it turns out that Dungeons and Bombs has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection, and each of the 50 stages you complete will grant you one trophy for your count! The trophies are split into 42 Bronze trophies, five Silver trophies, and three Gold trophies. The good news is that this means that as long as you complete the game, none of the trophies are missable!
Dungeons and Bombs is a fun puzzle game on PlayStation 4 with 50 single-screen levels to complete in a game that has a bit of a Bomberman feel to it. Once you save the Princess all 50 times, you’ll have one more Platinum trophy for your collection. There are some grammar and spelling mistakes in the game’s text, but it’s not a deal-breaker. Dungeons and Bombs is out now on PlayStation 4 with a $4.99 asking price.
