A downloadable Commodore 64 game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Welcome to Bomberland, the land whose residents have a passion for explosive events!
Over 10 years in development, Michal 'Skull' Okowicki's Bomberland brings classic console style multi-player party-gaming to the Commodore 64 like never seen before. Complimenting epic and customisable 2-5 player death-match tournaments with an incendiary 36-arena single player campaign, no other 8-bit title even comes close to the chaos and boom-bastic mayhem of this cartridge-exclusive game!
Featuring gorgeous high resolution graphics, challenging boss battles, tons of different enemies, password saves, game-changing power-ups, multiple play modes and an awesome SID soundtrack by Owen 'Conrad' Crowley, Bomberland supports both the CGA (Protovision) and HIT (by Excess and Hitmen) four-player adaptors and even includes full keyboard support, so you can play it solo on a stock C64/128 without any peripherals!

Playing Bomberland on Windows, Mac or Linux
Please note that the downloadable Commodore 64 version available here is primarily for use with emulators, but can also be run on a real C64 via hardware such as the 1541 Ultimate II or Turbo Chameleon. For emulator users, we recommend VICE, as it works on a variety of operating systems and is very user friendly. In fact, we've even included a pre-configured Windows, Mac and Linux version of the emulator with the download as well as some simple user instructions (we're nice like that).

Enjoyed Bomberland on your modern-day PC? Have an old Commodore 64 stashed away in the loft? Well, you'd be a fool not to grab a physical copy of the C64 version - it comes boxed with vinyl stickers, a poster, manual and even a postcard, just like in the good old days!

C64 Compatibility Notes
Bomberland has been tested on both PAL and NTSC machines, and works on the C64, C128 and GS.
GS owners are limited to two player mode only due to the lack of a User Port or keyboard. Bomberland also supports the Commodore 128 in 64 mode, using its extended hardware registers for acceleration. Although the game runs on NTSC hardware, it does play fractionally faster and will be harder as a direct result of this.
VICE Emulator Notes
As mentioned above, we've thoughtfully packaged the game download with VICE for Windows, Mac and Linux.
To start the game within the emulator, simply unzip the archive and hit that RUN ME file.
Joystick in port two has been mapped to the cursor keys and left-control (ctrl).
To toggle full screen, press ALT and ENTER together.
For full instructions on using VICE, read the docs supplied in the VICE directory. A full manual for the game, in English and German, is also provided (as a text file and pdf).
