Feval is a mock-up of the classic hit Bomberman that blew it's way into our homes 1983. The game is based on what you would see as Super Bomberman from the early 90's
The twist? You're no longer that bomb dropping maniac in a space suit, but a squirrel out for revenge. Using explosive acorns, as well as the power-ups found in the trees, you must blast your way to victory against up to 4 other opponents.
The game plays out exactly the same as the original Bomberman that it was created from, and the interface is what I would call very friendly. Iccusion still uses it's classic interface style which I've said before makes going from one game to the next a breeze. With 12 different maps, and 2 different set-ups for each map, you'll never have a problem with a server being full, as well as the game being able to accommodate up to 120 players.
The graphics for the game are beautiful. I've always love the work Iccusion has done in the past and how well they're style blends. They're easy on the eyes, and don't hurt your eyes after prolonged play. The sound however, there isn't much in that department save for a few sound effects from the booming bombs, and the power ups. This could be a good thing or a bad thing, as some people like to listen to their own music while they play games. The lack of music would allow them to still hear the sound effects, however a music toggle would be likely better. I expected to hear the classic Iccusion music playing when I joined, but we can't always get what we want.
Because the game is based on Bomberman, it isn't exactly the most original game, however bringing it to a new platform as well as the ranking and customization of your squirrels earns the game a good impression. It's like a new method of panhandling, same old junk, but it's got a shiny new coating.
Overall, I give this game 5 out of 5 acorns for my impression of it. Sure, the game isn't the most original out there, and it's lacking in the sound department, but there's always a flaw in every game that we don't like, and what really matters is if we have fun. The game has a lot of entertainment value, so I encourage you to give it a try. If anything, you can at least make a few cracks about kicking peoples nuts.
