Previously an exclusive to Android TV, Bombing Bastards has now arrived for all Android devices, with this new version designed with touchscreens in mind, and technically even a new name, billed as “Bombing Bastards: Touch!”. Probably the most exciting thing about this game, however, is that it is free, without in-app purchases.

I know you’re just waiting for me to mention a “catch”, so I will comply: there are no in-app purchases but if you die, you are asked to watch a small video ad before you are resurrected. Of course if you really hate in-app purchases and video ads, you don’t have to get resurrected and can instead start the level over reach time you die. Honestly, we’d say this is about as close to “100% free” as you could hope for, and way better than many apps that litter the screen with constant adds and have in-app purchases as well.

As for the game itself? It’s basically a fairly standard single-player Bomberman clone where you have to defeat enemies without blowing yourself up in the process, while clearing through stages and encountering bosses along the way. To help you make your way through the game, you’ll also find power ups and other goodies you can collect. If you enjoy this type of arcade blow-em-up experience, you’ll like what you find here.

What do you think, is this one worth the try considering its nearly ad/in-app free? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
