GameplayEdit

Bombermine is a MMO Game where you play as a man with bombs. Your goal is to kill everyone in your path, and score points. Along the way you will need to pick up power-ups , which can add effects such as an increase to your max bombs, an increase in how fast you move or the ability to throw bombs!

Game InterfaceEdit

When you spawn on the map you will see a variety of things on your screen. On the top left hand corner of your screen shows your current power-ups , (bombs, bats, blast range etc...). At the bottom center you will see your perk bar, where you current perks are shown, (passive and activated). To your top right you will see some numbers lined up. In order they are:

  • The current amount of people on the map
  • The amount of time left in the game (16 minutes max)
  • Ping and FPS (Ping is the rate in which your signal is sent from server back to you. FPS--frames per second--affects how smoothly your game runs.)

How to playEdit

RulesEdit

TOP

Each round lasts 16 minutes. The main goal is to make more points, kill other players and collect bonuses . Pressing TAB shows the scoreboard of player kills and deaths in the current round.

Chat rulesEdit

  1. No offensive messages
  2. No swearing
  3. No profanity
  4. No flooding
  5. No caps (THIS IS AN EXAMPLE)

When you speak in chat, please try to abide by and follow these rules. The rules apply to names as well, so please use appropriate names. If you break one of the following rules you will be muted by a mod, and each mute is x2 longer than the last. Your mute time will go down as time goes by. Hopefully you will be able to utilize chat to be the best it can and work together with other players!

Game modesEdit

TOP

At the moment there are two game modes, Team Play and Regular. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, as well as their own goals.

Team play

Regular

You work with other people

This is a free for all game mode

Your main goal is to capture flags

Your main goal is to get as many kills as possible

Can find virtually everything in blocks

Shields and power-ups are scarce

You start with 3 bombs

You start with one, measly bomb

Impossible to trap and kill yourself

Very likely, and probable that you will trap and kill yourself

You get to use team coordinated bombs

Everyone gets the plain, black bomb

These are just some of the differences in the game modes, and as the development of this game goes on more will be implemented!

Observation modeEdit

You can watch the game by clicking the 'Observe' button in the scoreboard . To get back into the game just hit space. Increase or decrease the scale of the map by using the mouse wheel or arrow keys 'UP' and 'DOWN'.

You can also watch the player (if he or she is playing). To watch a player, open the points 'TAB' and click on the nickname. You can also click on a player to observe that player. Soccer balls can also be observed.

TOP

Caffeine ServerEdit

On The European Caffeine server, often times you will find "new" or currently being developed things. This server is different from others for a few reasons. Firstly, stats are not counted here, so you can come here just to mess around and practice. Second, the server runs at 166% speed, meaning it's 66% faster than normal servers. Lastly, note that the layout may change from time to time. In the end this server is a good way for developers to let you know what's being developed and can even be used to test for any bugs!

ScoringEdit

TOP

Scores are calculated at the end of every round using the following formulas:

Your score in classic server = money / 10 + kills * 20 + football_goals * 120 + plutonium * 500

Your score in team server = money / 10 + kills * 10 + flags_captured * 5

RanksEdit

TOP

The ranks are designed to show the overall progress of the character. You may view any player's ranking here . In total, there are 16 ranks from 'Rookie', to the highest: 'General'. A player's current rank can be seen next to the nickname of other players and you can quite easily determine the level of skill your opponent may have acquired.

The ranks are assigned on the basis of points, calculated according to the general statistics of the character. Virtually all of the major aspects of the game (to varying degrees) affect your score.

AchievementsEdit

TOP

There are many personal goals you can accomplish in Bombermine . These can be found in your profile under the "Achievements" tab. There are goals such as:

  • Daily rewards for playing at least one round each day. Each consecutive day played the reward will get better (up to 5 days)
  • This is also a great place to track your Kills, Total Kills, Kills per Round, Soccer Goals, Medals, Rounds played, Gold collected, and Flags captured.

SkinsEdit

TOP

Bombermine has a unique skin system, where you can look like various different things. From your favorite robot look to a terrifying monster, Bombermine gives you a chance to run around as something you like as you bomb other players! To change your character skin simply visit your profile and select the "Skins" tab.

BombsEdit

TOP

In this game, there are several types of bombs. There are plans to add more in the future.

Bomb  Normal Bomb — Most common, but very deadly.

Greybomb  Grey Bomb — Does not cause damage to players. These bombs are only available when a player is invulnerable, re-spawning or loss of a shield, or pushed out of a puzzle / regenerated portion of the map.

Nyanbomb  Nyan Bomb — Emit rays of goodness and happiness, though unfortunately just as deadly as normal bombs.

Bluebomb  Blue Bomb — Causes 3x damage to blocks. Has further reach than normal bombs.

Radiobomb  Radio Bomb — A Detonated bomb. Explodes when player placing bomb presses 'SHIFT' or 'L', or by a nearby explosion. Radio bombs work with any combination of bombs. IE: Radio-Blue-Bomb.

Santabomb
Santa Bomb — Chance to give gifts. Still just as deadly as normal bombs.

Teambomb
Team Bomb — Shows which team placed it. Stuns players of the same color.

StatusesEdit

<p style="text-align:right;">TOP</p>

ARMOR — Cannot be killed. This status is given when a player re-spawns, when a player loses his or her shield, or when a player is re-located from either a puzzle, or map regeneration.

STUN — A player cannot place a bomb for the duration of this effect, appearing dizzy.

RADIATION — Players with this status are not affected by other diseases and may not pick up Surprise Packages.

DiseasesEdit

<p style="text-align:right;">TOP</p>

Diseases are transmitted by contact with another player, greatly varying the tactics of the game. Some diseases can be useful, such as the 'Short Flame' disease allowing players through narrow passages to reach loot.

INVISIBILITY — A player becomes completely transparent for the duration of this status.

UPSIDE-DOWN SCREEN — Player flips upside down, making it difficult to control.

SLOWPOKE — Greatly decreases the speed of a player.

SHORT FLAME — Players with this disease are half the size of a normal player, with reduced bombs, exploding only one space away from the bomb. Blue bombs can explode maximum of 3 squares away while effected by this disease.

FAST EXPLOSION — Bombs explodes two times faster than normal. 

NYANCAT — Player becomes a Nyan-cat. In this mode, the player's speed increases, the bombs are replaced by brighter, more powerful 'nyan bombs', however the player cannot control bombing. The more bombs a player has, the more dangerous this disease is.

Tips, tricks, and advanced techniques.Edit

<p style="text-align:right;">TOP</p>

1.) Never stand still, it leaves you open to someone simply running by and spamming bombs, trapping you. If you MUST stop moving it's best to pause. (press "I" to pause)

2.) Avoid "battling" people until you have at least a good combination of power-ups . (For example don't spawn, and then chase people down. Skates are a necessity in this game!)

3.)Place your bombs every few blocks, instead of all in a line.(if max blast range is 6 then every 4 blocks is optimal) By spacing out your bombs you cover more ground, and you can save bombs in case you find someone you can trap easily.

4.) Remember the order of your placed bombs. that way you can stand in a field of 12 bombs, and not get touched. also try to time the bombs you place. bombs explode after 4 seconds, and if you can count "1...2.." in your head you can max out your bomb usage and know when to get out of the way

5.) Kicking an opponents placed bombs can often confuse them, as well throw off what ever order of bombs they were going for.

6.)Sometimes being in a squad with someone can be useful. Because you will have people who will help you with puzzles and scoring goals.(which award a shield and power-ups! ) Being in a squad can also be useful when trying to pick up the plutonium , which can be used in the shop for a variety of things!

7.)Don't be afraid to stop playing for a few rounds and watch players. Bombermine  can be frustrating and so when you get angry you wont play as well. and it never hurts to watch other players and see how they do things.
