|Yeah like, there are actual bomberman clones, and then there's this. Like it looks like it could have learned from Bomberman or been inspired by Bomberman in how it sets up its mechanics and such, but it wouldn't be unreasonable to say that it's a coincidence. Like I could see the step by step thought process that would lead to certain mechanics, like the ice needing time to form because then it would be too easy to kill enemies otherwise.|
Either way, looks fundamentally different from Bomberman in a lot of other ways.
Also a lot of those "Battle Game" concepts that it "steals" from Bomberman, those are literally just like standard versus mode options. Actually I'm not sure which one of those are supposed to be unique for Bomberman, you have a competition against multiple other players, with the goal of yes eliminating other players because it's a competition. You win by using the game's mechanics, and there's different levels for variety. The name "Battle Game" is the closest similarity aspect but it's also not that special of a name and who really cares for that.
