Blitzkrieg Online, Topdown Shooter (Submit Ideas)

So yeah I might as well make a topic here to gather ideas.
I'm making an online shooter game, you know that kind of game with like rounds and stuff, not really an MMORPG
or something like that. My inspiration is Halo obviously :P

What I want to know is if you guys can submit any cool ideas for the game in general.
Ideas that would be considered unique.

Heres a screenshot of my lagtest map:
Image

- The blue + signs are just spawn points
- There are two powerups
- A speed powerup
- A shield powerup (increases maximum health temporarily, like the overshield in Halo)

My current dev goes online, how ever all you can do is walk around, chat, and gather powerups.
This is where you guys come in.

What sorts of things should I do with this game? Should it just be a sort of death match game?

Here was my kind of idea. I was hoping it could be a cool little bomberman-type, where you can not only shoot opponents but place bombs and surround them. And it would also help extremely in level design (all I need for the map would just be square crates that I place in a grid-like format)
That's just one idea though. Some cool game types maybe? CTF? Team Slayer? Etc.

So yeah submit your thoughts.

It was pretty cool walking around and stuff when I was testing it out for you. I'd definitely say that you should add a chat feature very similar to Goombas Online.
And I can make map layouts for you. :D

For the bomberman map:

That's as simple as it gets.

for your bommerman one, i would advise having a look at the snes games Bomberman 3 and 5(jap) they are very goood and it would be good to see it as a multiplayer, Also powerupwise i would love to see maybe a Damadge up, so you actualy hit higher per shot, maybe a ammo crait if you have ammo ofcourse, Heal, also maybe if u can get some stuff from the pc game AVP2, would be cool XD, would be cool if u could do like the game "Infectonator" too but your a human instead of an Alien. Will DEFINATLY be adding more ideas, and wouldn't mind if i could test it too. (don't mind)

I'm sorry I guess I was a bit harsh you were just trying to help.

Anyways I added a new image, added crates for a 'Bomberman'-like feel to it.

You need a crap load of power-ups- Not just two. I think that's what Da Cool Man was trying to say.
And, you need a crap load of levels.

That level was just for testing. Now that I'm done with the lag I can make some more stuff.
I just need ideas on game types and things, you know, things that would make it unique.

Well, first, make the window a little bigger. You should make a lot of different guns that all have different abilities or perks. You should have a speed, power, defense, and infinite ammo power-up. Hmmm... What else comes to mind... ? Maybe invisibility and walk-through-walls.
I'd suggest playing CSPSP. Your game really reminds me of it.

That looks just like your Goomba one. I liked Goomba Wars. Where is it?
