Well, the reports on Closed Alpha 3 are in.

While the death counts aren't outrageous so far by 2 of them, there is a concern coming in. Level 7 is still yet to be played, and my testers are currently running out of bombs consistently. Considering the high amount of summoners, powered enemies, and other things to come, this is a major, major concern as this will end up with James Quest and company as one of the hardest quests in the database, AGAIN, without Kaizo Mode.

So in response:

I will be totally rewarking the bomb count concept in Downfall.

1. You will now start off with 10 Bombs, and bomb ammo gives 5 bombs instead of 4.
2. Bomb Pay Upgrades will be dropped and replaced by Bomb Bags that increase bomb counts by +10.
3. To compensate for these new buffs, Super Bombs will be nerfed. You only get one per 7 Bombs now instead of one per four, so you can't blow through rooms effortlessly. They still cost 68 Rupees.

What was Closed Alpha 3 will become Open Alpha 1, and people will be able to try it out for themselves.

Have a major Downfall for a Merry Christmas. Enjoy people.

Why not just have super bombs be their own counter with their own bags?

You wouldn't like that, I'd limit Super Bombs to one ot two that way

Also thinking about seriously adding a dropset to Achebats. They're still way too powerful.
