What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a lone indie developer it is important to thoroughly test the product before a real launch. And real players are much better at braking stuff than I am.

Expect bugs to be present in the game. Let me know what they are and how to recreate them. I will issue a fix as fast as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Hopefully the game will be in early access for 2-3 months only before full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Better particle effects
Some updated models
Fewer bugs
Better SFX
Updated level

After full release
Steamworks integration
Steam leaderboards
Steam achievements”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All core mechanics are in place, but bugs are present.

See "About this game" for features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Every week after Early Access launch I will host a poll on a feature to be implemented in the following week.
Community feedback will influence the features in the poll.”

“it’s a fun game that offers a nice twist on the classic Bomberman gameplay – it allows for plenty of “Oh Sh*t!” moments as you round a corner and come face to face with a bomb!”
Alpha Beta Gamer

About This Game

Back in 1983 Hudson Soft and Konami released Bomberman (in Europe known as Dynablaster).

Hide and go boom is a modern take on that classic game. With more than one twist.

Play with your friends either on split screen or over the internet.

Run around in a maze, drop bombs to destroy the boxes and collect the powerups.
Avoid being killed by your enemies or your own stupidity. Playing in insanity mode, the latter is harder than the former.

Playing much like the original, Hide and go Boom adds its own twists to the game.
Instead of the birds eye view, you now enjoy a first person view of the action.


  • Drop bombs to destroy crates or enemies
  • Block in your opponents with your bombs
  • Strategically place bombs above or below enemies and hit them from an angle they don't expect
  • Explore the junkyard after you collect the jump buffs
  • 2 distinct levels that offer very different experiences (more levels to come)


  • Extra bombs
  • More powerful explosions
  • Remote control
  • Extra speed
  • Extra jump
  • Extra jump strength
  • One jump limit
  • Limited jump strength
  • Involuntary bomb dropping

Planned powerups, not in the game yet
