I know that the topic is old, but I never saw people sharing theories about why bombs are not exploding although brought to the top while fighting the Screaming Death Alpha. My theory is that a bomb will go buggy as soon as you match tiles with it. I attached some screenshots of my recording of the last battle to give some evidence.
Start of turn 8:
I discovered a way to bring both bombs to the top but have to match with a bomb tile to do so:
Matching seems to work:
The bomb not used for matching explodes:
The other one remains:
Note: I tried to use the whole-column-special-tile afterwards to make the bomb explode, didn’t work.
My question is if it’s maybe not intended to be able to match with a bomb tile and therefore the bug appears?
