Most of the Atari 2600 games can be summed up in one or two sentences max. Kaboom! is no exception. There’s a ‘Mad Bomber’ at the top of the screen dropping bombs and you have to catch them in your buckets of water to defuse them. Every time you miss you lose a bucket, lose them all and it’s game over.

Okay, it’s kind of lame, and I knew that when I was playing it. Still, it was kind of fun for a little while. Especially since I got it at some yard sale or other for a pittance. So I didn’t feel very ripped off.
