Background[]

Bombenhagel is available exclusively on Madtronix Multicarts which was first available in 2014 and was programmed with an extremely short deadline so the multicarts could be produced by a certain time. It was also Der Luch's first completed game.

Gameplay[]

The player controls a gun turret defending a city from a barrage of missiles. The player must destroy the missiles before they impact the city. The bombs are extremely potent and even a single bomb will completely destroy the city and cause the game to end.
