Every 90’s kid will surely remember this popular video game called Bomberman where players had to strategically place bombs, carefully making their way through a maze, to find a key and proceed on to the level. The iconic video game has now been successfully recreated in CS:GO using the Source Engine and will soon be available to download for free from the Steam Workshop.

According to the developer of the game, ZooL Smith, “all the gameplay features are there already,” and the only things that remain are HUB and configuration area, following which the map will be released for the CS:GO community to enjoy.

The news about Bomberman being recreated for CS:GO was positively received by the Counter-Strike community, who appreciated ZooL’s effort to create such a wonderful remake that is bound to trigger a lot of nostalgia.

From the looks of the short trailer released, players will have an option to select various game parameters like different types of arenas and various user configurations. After having made their selections, players need to walk through a door after which they will automatically spawn in the middle of a maze.

The gameplay and objective of Bomberman in CS:GO remains the same as the original., However, it may take some time to get used to the 3D aspect of the game which is absent in the original. Players will place grenades and try to get out of its path before it blows up, slowly making their way through the maze while coming across a few enemy players and a lot of powerups.

In recent times a lot of unique CS:GO custom maps have been released by various users for the CS:GO community. The most amazing one was porting ‘Among Us’ over to the Source Engine and making it possible to play the game on special maps in 3D with a first-person perspective. Bomberman for CS:GO seems to have been inspired by this and it will be interesting to see how well it does following its release.
