Grab some friends, your Mac, a few gamepads or iPhones, and get your party-game on!
Challenge your friends or the computer to a plethora of mini-games including Capture-the-Flag, King-of-the-Hill, Bomber-Hockey, and of course Epic-Slow-Motion-Elimination.
Laugh gleefully as you land a perfectly-thrown sticky-bomb squarely on an opponent's face, freeze them with an ice bomb and shatter them to bits with a punch, or just pick them up and toss them off a nearby cliff. BombSquad's rag doll physics based gameplay ensures that every confrontation leads to a unique (and often hilarious) outcome.
Up to 8 players can get in on the action on a single Mac through BombSquad's support of keyboards, USB gamepads, Wiimotes, PS3 controllers, and XBox 360 controllers. You can even use iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads as controllers via 'BombSquad Remote', a free app available on the iOS App Store.

Ratings and Reviews
As original as it is viceral
Bombsquad is a truely incredible game. The developer wrote a Bomberman clone that combines the intensity of an FPS and the depth of a fighting game into one package.
The first thing you will notice is the lack of combos. Everything is physics-based and has a dark humor reminicent of TF2. (team fortress 2) The author wrote his own engine to make absolutely everything a joy. The punches are physics-based and knock people backward, the fighting is meaty and intense, and the titular bombs are incredible.
Somehow it adds an FPS element to a fighting game. There is a Freeze bomb to stop your opponents and/or shatter them with a punch, a Sticky bomb with a tendancy to cause disturbing ends, Smart bombs that detonate on impact, Mines that explode on contact, and Multi-bombs that cause you to spit out bombs at high speeds. The bombs have fuses and they tend to roll. The subtle power-ups and other things allow for ad-hoc fighting that wouldn't be out of place in Spelunky. It is easy to pick up, easy to teach, satisfying even if you are playing alone, and violent as heck. All in all, a party game without equal, with varying mechanics and bizarre game modes, Iphone control support, servers, and more stuff. If I saw this on someone else's computer, I would look for it on Steam. Just play it, either with friends or single player. You won't be disapointed. This is in the same category as Towerfall, Super Smash Bros, Gang Beasts, and other immortal party games.
Great enjoable game
Although it takes me some time to get familiar with the control, but it's such a great game, very playable. BTW, the way I can controll my character by smartphone is so user friendly.
This game is amazing! There are over 15 characters to unlock, many gamemodes to play, and just overall explosive awesomeness. The only issue is that there is “Bombsquad Pro”, which is sort of like a pay to win thing you have to buy to do certain things. Other than that, it’s great!
