Inspired by the classic gameplay of Bomberman, Ponpu takes the concept in a new direction, adding new mechanics and features while packaging it in super-slick, hand-drawn graphics. Play through the epic single-player campaign where you’ll face off against some of the coolest boss fights you’ve ever seen, in a race to defeat the almighty Duck-God and to stop him from resetting the universe. Once you’ve honed your skills in the campaign, take the fight to your friends (or foes) in either local multiplayer or online. Ponpu features 3 game modes, all equally chaotic; coin chase, paint battle and good old fashioned deathmatch. FEATURES:  A fresh take on a classic game concept An epic campaign with massive bosses Hectic 4-player multiplayer with three crazy game modes:Deathmatch – Last Ponpu standing wins!Coin steal – Hoard the most coins before the time is up. Dragon style! Paint battle – Paint the town red! (or you know… whichever color you prefer) The most epic egg-based arsenal ever witnessed!

Ponpu, a Bomberman spiritual successor, offers solid fun for up to 4 players in local multiplayer. It falls short with its solo campaing, with good boss fights but insipid levels and unreliable controls. Nevertheless, it's a good choice for social gatherings, that also surprises with its daring monochromatic art design.

Ponpu is a decently fun Bomberman clone that has a distinct art style and some cool multiplayer modes. While the single-player content is nothing to write home about, you can definitely have a clucking good time with the right friends locally or online.

Ponpu manages to amuse the player a little, but the story mode, besides being empty and repetitive, also have performance issues every time you pick up a feather. The multiplayer does not deliver anything big as well and doesn't have any match customizations, removing all replay factor that might exist.

Although I had fun playing Ponpu, it made me want to dive back into Bomberman as it isn't quite as satisfying as Hudson's classic.
