Bombermine: 1000-Player 'Homage' To Bomberman Hits The Web

An incredibly addictive online 'homage' to the classic video game Bomberman has been released online - supporting up to 1,000 individual players.

Bombermine is a free, browser-based massively multiplayer version of the classic game.

The incredibly addictive remake involves running around a huge maze, laying bombs and trying to outwit fellow players.

It's incredibly addictive and action-packed, and as long as it remains online (depending on the wrath of the games industry's laywers) it looks set to eat into the world's productivity in a relentless and economically disadvantageous way.

There is also an included chat feature, which among other things includes lots of people wondering aloud where the last four hours went.
