Panic Bomber, or Tobidase! Panibon, is a falling blocks puzzle game for various systems. It features characters and concepts from the Bomberman franchise; the falling pieces are mostly Bomberman heads and bombs.
The goal is to line up same-colored Bomberman heads in lines of three or more horizontally, vertically or diagonally to remove them. Getting hit by multiple bombs, each of which projects an explosion in all four cardinal directions similar to their appearances in Bomberman, will also remove the heads. As the player drops and removes the Bomberman heads, the level of the stage increases and so too does the speed of the falling blocks.
The game was originally released in 1994 for the PC Engine CD-ROM: a system that Panic Bomber developers Hudson co-created with NEC. It was later ported to the Neo Geo, the Super Famicom (as "Super Bomberman: Panic Bomber W", where the W stands for World), the Virtual Boy (where it saw its only North American release) and, eventually, the PlayStation Portable. A version of the game also appears in Bomberman Land 2 for the GameCube and PS2. The PC Engine CD-ROM version was added to the Japanese Wii's Virtual Console in 2008.
