Bombergrounds: Battle Royale is an MMO developed and published by Gigantic Duck Games in 2020.
Bombergrounds: Battle Royale is a free-to-play MMO, inspired by classic Bomberman games. It has cartoonish graphics and overall “cute” setting, although the plot tells us about warring animals that fight against each other. As well as other Battle Royale games, this one challenges you to defeat all opponents to win. There is an opportunity to obtain the game with so-called “Founders Pack” that gives many bonuses at the start.
The gameplay features a fast-paced action with setting up bombs, collecting perks and upgrades, and eliminating enemy players. Game mechanics involve multiple activities of bombing other players, such as:
Swinging the bat in order to move the bombs towards others;
Maxing out on power and dealing vast amounts of damage to all present on the map;
Stunning and also surviving the shrinking zone as it gets narrower. The last one standing receives a Victory Royale.
The gameplay of Bombergrounds: Battle Royale is mostly skill-based, although players are offered to donate to in-game shop and to buy power-ups for their characters. Small animal creatures that are presented as the only characters in the game are also fully customizable. Customizable objects include hats, bats, clothes, colours, shoes, bodies, bombs, faces and accessories. Almost all of the items can be bought for in-game money that was earned during the battles.
The matches of this MMO start with 25 players that all fight against each other; this amount of players creates a fast-paced action that requires quick reaction in order to win. The main feature of the game is its Battle Royale mode. Bombergrounds: Battle Royale delivers a large map that will have its edge blocks fall down as the time passes. Meanwhile, players plant and explode bombs to extract coins, stars and power-ups from underground. When the map gets smaller, player-on-player action becomes a top priority for all who take part in the match.
Bombergrounds: Battle Royale also provides a game mode where players can team up and fight against other teams. This mode grants exclusive awards and customization features. Developers provide cross-platform support with a possibility to play from a Windows, iOS or an Android device.
