A game for Panic's Playdate console.

Help the 'Bomber Panda' save his species from extinction by... blowing stuff up!

This fun and challenging game has 31 levels of increasing difficulty for you to blast through.

Collect power-ups to increase your bomb capacity, explosion size and walking speed.

Avoid or blast the aggressive enemies while you try to find the exit.

The game does not utilize the Playdate's crank, so if you don't have your Playdate console yet, you can still easily play it on your desktop PC using the Playdate simulator available from the Playdate website.

I have played this game daily since I downloaded it, have not reached the end, but that's okay, love playing it! I just wish there was a way to kill the spinner!!

That's great. I'm really glad you've found it so enjoyable.

Yeah, the spinning blades are tricky. But I'm sure you'll get past them if you stick with it.

Yeah I know patience is the key, but to blow them up would be satisfying, LOL


Iv been having  a load of fun with this one. Not finished it yet but i love bomberman and puzzles

I loved Bomberman as a kid back in the nineties and this single player Bomberman experience feels better than most of the single player modes from the originals. Panda rules!


Hearing that makes me really happy.

Thanks a lot.


Totally agree with davetest.  Of the 20 apps I have installed, this is definitely the one I keep coming back to.  Great game.

That's really awesome to hear.

Thank you.

Any chance we’ll see more levels as more people start receiving their hardware?


It's not something I planned to do, because I just considered the game complete.

But I could do.

I'm trying to concentrate on my next game at the moment, but perhaps later I'll update the game with an extra set of "DLC" style levels. (For free of course.)

Would love to collaborate if you’d be interested. And I think a DLC would be worth a payment, if only optional. Cheers!


I'm not planning to make any large updates to Bomber Panda for a while.

I do have a level creation tool for it though.

I can send it to you if you'd like to try it out.


I’m in love with this game!  When I got my Playdate I sideloaded about 30 games, and this is the one I keep coming back to. Currently grinding level 29. Keep up the great work!

Really glad to hear that you like the game so much.

30 games? Where

Well, all the games here under the playdate tag, and this list. 


Big thanks man


Great update! FYI: The file still says 1.0 when it's on the Playdate. But I confirmed that the updates you made are there, so it is actually 1.2.


Yeah, I should update that pdxfile.

I seem to have a problem with that.

Thanks for letting me know.

As per the previous comment, it seems that you forgot to make a proper pdxinfo file. Currently it's like this:

author=You, Inc.
description=A basic game template.
(1 edit)

I thought I did the pdxinfo file.

I'll address that soon.


EDIT: Done.

It plays and looks great on console! But just a heads up, it registers as "Template" when sideloading on site.

Have only played the first several levels, but excited to dive deeper into it!

I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for the feedback.

I updated the downloadable file.

Can confirm it fixed the naming issue, nice turnaround!
