A downloadable game

C:\Dstroy\ is a Bombermanania game for MS-Dos originally released in 1995. There are several gameplay modes. This includes single player, cooperation, and deathmatch. Up to four players can play on the same computer with split-screen. (No network support)


A:\The game's story that takes place in a world populated by cute ball shaped creatures called Boodies, and their nasty counterparts, the Meuries. One sad Boodies unwittingly becomes the cause of a Meuries invasion, and now the Boodies homeland must be saved from these interlopers.

A:\The core gameplay mechanics are similar to those in Bomberman: the player needs to place timed bombs to destroy walls and hostile creatures that roam the levels. Some destroyed walls will reveal bonuses that, when picked up, provide a certain advantage to the player, like the ability to place more than one bomb at a time, increase the radius of the explosion and so on. However, some pickups are actually harmful to the player and work to their disadvantage, which is to be considered when picking up a random bonus item.


  • In Story Mode (singleplayer up to 4 cooperative players), the player(s) has to defeat all the monsters to advance to the next level. There are 8 worlds (with different blocks and monsters) in this game, each World consist of 5 levels and a final Boss. Some worlds have features like a wall that separates the level into two halves or passageways that teleport you to the other end of the map.
  • Deathmatch has similar rules except that no monsters are present. The objective is to kill all other human players. The Classic Tournament mode is mostly similar to Adventure mode, but this time it's free for all, and the main goal is to destroy the other players. Killer Tournament removes bonuses and destructible walls, and the level gets flooded with Meuries while the players try to eliminate one another.

Hello, any chance for a Linux native version ? Or Steam maybe so we can try Proton in an easier way ?

We unfortunately lost most of the (assembly) code of the game in a tragic HDD accident quickly after releasing the 1.2 version back then.
A Non-official port + update for LINUX was made by a fan in the years 2000, that might be still available online.
