You're surrounded by walls and loaded with bombs. In the distance an explosion erupts, sending bricks flying in every direction. Another explosion, this time closer. And another still, even closer than that. It's not just Bomberman—it's first-person Bomberman, and it's glorious.


It's also, unfortunately, not a real game, but rather a concept created by YouTube video effects specialists Pipoca. The experience communicated in the concept video is wonderfully tense. The explosions lick at your heels as you jump out of the way, bits of bricks flying in all directions. Your opponent remains hidden until you're too close for comfort, otherwise only vaguely indicated by intermittant eruptions.

I would play this until my fingers fell off. Then I'd use my teeth. After that, I'd use yours.
