POMPING WORLD / BUSTER BROS. (CAPCOM / HUDSON SOFT)

SUPER CD-ROM 2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

Pomping World (or Buster Bros. in the US) is an Hudson Soft conversion of Pang, a cult arcade game of the 80´s. In this excellent game, originally created by Capcom, you have to divide huge colored balls in smaller pieces, until they´re completely destroyed. If you touch on any of these balls, bye-bye, and R.I.P. :)

 

Hudson Soft made a terrific job in this game. There´s an option for two simultaneous players, and the graphics are on par with the arcade´s. The game control is awesome, the action doesn´t stop at all and there´s not a single image flicker along the game, even when the screen is completely filled with objects.

 

An interesting aspect on Pomping World is related to its background graphics. They show some of the world´s most famous places, such as Angkor Vat (Kampuchea), Taj Mahal (India), Mount Fuji (Japan) and Paris (France). The Audio-CD soundtrack is pretty good and fits perfectly the places portrayed on the background. Unfortunately, Brazil has been forgotten again... it would be really cool to play some stages with Iguaçu Falls as background. :)

  

Pomping World is highly recommended for those who are looking for a platform game with plenty of action. Once again, Hudson Soft brought us an excellent port of an amazing arcade game.
