DynaBlaster is an action arcade puzzle game, being really addictive especially when played in multiplayer mode. The simplest games are often the best and this is definitely the case with DynaBlaster. The game was initially released by Hudson Soft (as Bomberman) for the arcades and the NEC PC Engine and Sharp X68000 and was praised for its playability and addictiveness. It was later ported to the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST/E, Nintendo NES and PC (MS-DOS).
 
Review
Dyna BlasterThe basic concept behind the game is simple: you've got to run around a maze and place your bombs (that will detonate in 2 seconds) skillfully to protect you from the enemies. Collect the power-ups to get more bombs and larger or programmed explosions. There are a few mystery bonuses that can either help you or hinder you, depending on how lucky you are! If a bomb blast hits another bomb, that one goes off too.
DynaBlaster offers 64 levels of various and colorful mazes and also comes with a special dongle (which was also DynaBlaster's copy protection) that plugs into your serial port, allowing extra 2 extra joysticks to be plugged, offering an up to 5-players gameplay (four joysticks + keyboard player)! The first one to score five victories is the overall champ! Surely the single-player mode is addictive running through 64 levels but in head to head, with 5 players, this is truly awesome!
Running around a grey brick maze while trying to avoid multiple explosions, an unfriendly jelly-like ghost and the other sadistic players requires total concentration, fast reflexes and the ability to stay calm under pressure. Can you stand the heat?

Graphics are nice offering simple but cute and colorful sprites, but more varied screens layouts in multi-player mode wouldn't have gone amiss. Note that the Amiga port is better in graphics offering more colors and more details in each maze.
The sound offers a suitable tune, and those all important explosion noises (not sampled here) add a lot to the game.
