somebomb is a puzzle game centered around the concept of placing bombs in the right places to destroy all enemies on the board. There are two types of explosive to use, one which hits everything in horizontal and vertical directions, while the other damages all creatures diagonally.

Players have a limited number of bombs to place, although some levels can be cleared without using them all. Each enemy also has a counter that you have to reduce to zero, and players are rewarded with a golden star if they manage to defeat all creatures without decimating any of them into ashes.
