The Power Bomb item is a bomb upgrade. It transforms the first bomb that a player places into a Power Bomb. The Power Bomb is denoted by a red "P" emblem. Power Bombs will explode with a maximum Fire range.[1]


Only the first bomb that a player places will become a Power Bomb. All other bombs will be regular. If a player wishes to utilize the Power Bomb upgrade, he or she must take this into consideration and only place one bomb at a time. This plan must be subverted when it is necessary to place more bombs.

If opponents have Power Bombs, it may be to the player's benefit to trick them into setting more bombs.
