Bomberland Cartridge Available on the C64!

The long-awaited Commodore 64 game Bomberland is now available to buy now as either a physical cartridge or downloadable file.

Developed by Michal Okowicki & Owen Crowley over a 10 year period, Bomberland is a hugely ambitious project for a debut game release. Exclusive to C64 cartridge, the game supports up to five players in the classic multiplayer deathmatch mode as well as offering an epic 36-stage single player campaign over six different worlds, complete with boss fights.

Featuring gorgeous high resolution graphics that give the game a deceptively 16-bit feel, tons of different enemies, C128 enhancements, password saves, game-changing power-ups and multiple play modes, Bomberland supports both the CGA (Protovision) and HIT (by Excess and Hitmen) four-player adaptors and even includes full keyboard support, so you can play it solo on a stock C64/128 without any peripherals!

The game comes complete with a 32-page printed manual, two code sheets, a vinyl Samar Productions sticker and a double-sided poster that features an extensive monster info sheet on the reverse. The 64KB PCB is housed in an orange cartridge shell.

The cartridge version is available in two packaging types, a standard card carton and a more expensive ‘deluxe version’ that comes in a plastic case (a Universal Game Case with a specially cut foam insert to hold the cartridge as shown below). The standard version is priced at £25, whereas the deluxe version costs £30. Shipping is £4 for UK/Europe and £5 for the rest of the world.

Bomberland is also available to buy as a downloadable .CRT image to use via emulation or on real hardware devices such as the Ultimate 1541-II. Purchases of both physical versions include this download for free.

    Was just watching this and thought of posting it here. Great minds. Looks stunning.

    Love this 2nd or even 3rd commercial age on the C64 right now.

      Just bought it, as previously mentioned it is awesome that people are still actively coding for the c64! I am trying my best to learn 6502 assembly atm as it is a computer that truly deserves the attention it is currently receiving. Plus it is also a pleasure to program.

    Just had a quick play… WOW!! Amazing sound, amazing graphics, amazing gameplay. In no particular order BTW. I just bought the cartridge after playing the £1.99 download. It really deserves to do well. Buy the download at least, you won’t regret it. The c64 is still in there with the big boys!! 100% Kudos to the guys that made this, they deserve a big pat on the back. The c64 still has plenty of life left in her, you just need to give her the attention she deserves.

    Wow I saw this at play expo and I was totally blown away how great it looked.

    If this had been released back in the day, it would have ruled the c64 charts at number 1

    Big shout out to the maker of the games as it’s simply stunning game.

    I’m gonna buy for myself for xmas
