This freebie lets you blow stuff up, but it won't blow your mind. Bomber couldn't be easier to play; your job is to simply use your biplane to drop bombs and destroy all the buildings on the board. Once the plane reaches the far-left side on the nonresizeable window, it quickly will reappear on the right, getting closer to the ground each time. As the levels progress, the buildings grow taller, making a crash more likely. Still, we found gameplay too repetitive, as your plane never comes under attack. The graphics seem below average, although the explosion sound effects are a bit better. Another flaw we'd like to address is Bomber's absolute lack of user customization options. But since it is totally free, we can suggest the game to those who need an occasional cathartic release during a rough workday.
