In this game, the player controls a man who must catch bombs. By pressing the left or right buttons, you can move the man in the direction of the pressed button. After catching them, he must move to the edges of the screen to dispose the bombs. However, he can only hold up to three bombs. If a fourth one is caught, it will explode instead, as if a bomb was missed.
