Bomberman Recreated For CS:GO Using Source Engine

‘Minigame – Bomberman’ has been created by CS:GO content creator and animator ‘ZooL’, quite popular within the Counter-Strike community. He has brought Bomberman back to life in 3D, for everyone to enjoy within CS:GO. The objective and gameplay are exactly the same as that of the original title, however, the POV (Point of View) of the player seems to have shifted to a first-person perspective, instead of the classic tabletop view. Though a top down view is available through the minimap available in-game.

The grenades being placed across the map are huge in size, so players cannot walk over them. They have to avoid them by taking cover or stepping out of their blast radius. There are also a lot of different power ups available in the game that grant various special abilities to the player for a short duration.
