How to Play

Welcome to Manbomber, an explosive homage to the old-time multiplayer classic made with PICO-8! In this game, your goal is to drop bombs on the battlefield to eliminate all other players in time and be the last manbomber standing.

The game can be played with up to 4 players battling each other. While in the 2-player mode, both players can use the same keyboard to control their manbomber, a controller for each player is required for all other modes. Any Controller which can be connected to your device will do!

So grab a couple of friends, choose one of the three battlefields and blast off!


While bombing your way through the battlefield, you will come across various items which may help (or hinder) you along the way:

Incredible, i love the original game, thanks a lot for this crazy demake :)
Now if you can add montures and different mechanics and handicaps would take this to the next level.


enjoying the game


Why don't you export it to Android phones? 


Amazing. I have been hoping for a great 4-player bomberman on Pico-8. There have been a couple of decent ones, but this one is awesome.

Even a peppy soundtrack to match ;)


Love it! Kept Playing round after round



Thank you cactus! We‘re glad you like it!
