Bombslinger is an homage to Bomberman, one that will have players laying explosives across procedurally-generated fields as they try to get revenge on the Bombslinger’s former posse.
The Bombslinger tried to leave the bandit life behind to become a rancher, but after his former friends killed his wife, he took up explosives yet again. He has several types available to him, using laid bombs, thrown molotovs, and enemy-seeking fireballs, but can also use knives and guns to down his foes in a pinch.
Players will face off against groups of bandits in various generated arenas filled with power-ups. After tangling with them, he’ll run into members of his old gang in unique boss fights, each with various mechanics the player will have to deal with to kill the tough thugs.
Available now on Steam Early Access, Bombslinger offer four levels and four bosses. Later additions will offer more enemies, more bombs types, and a four-player local multiplayer mode.
