The mad bomber is on the loose! As he races back and forth at the top of the screen, you need to catch the bombs he drops in buckets of water. One point is earned for each bomb caught, but miss one of the bombs, and Kaboom! As the levels progress, the mad bomber will move faster and faster and drop more and more bombs. You start the game with three buckets, and lose one each time a bomb is missed. The game ends when all of your water buckets are gone.

There are currently no topics for this game.
Players who were able to rack up 3,000 points or higher were eligible to receive the "Bucket Brigade" patch from Activision if they sent in a screenshot to the company. If players were ever to reaching the maximum point value of 999,999, Activision encouraged people to send in a screenshot to recognize such a "remarkable achievement".
