BlasterBots by DuckyTheDuck

Does anyone remember the old Bomberman game for SNES? I can't even begin to explain how many hours I spent playing the "campaign" of that game, let alone the amoutn of time I played multiplayer against my brothers and friends... Good times... This map project is pretty straightforward, it's a tribute to the Bomberman game I was speaking of; strategically lay bombs and kill your opponents [and blocks]! In addition, feel free to read the interview Blizzard conducted with him about this map.
