Workaround could look like this:

1. Bomber starts to fill itself with air

2. Fall speed goes down, since bomber will behave like a baloon

3. Bomber explodes like normal.

So, instead of letting the bomber behave like a faller, it should get
an additional force pushing him upwards, so that:

 faller-speed += gravity - bomber_upforce;

Floater->Bomber must be useable to bomb holes into the wall to the
left/right (quite a lot levels use that), Faller->Bomber is ok if they
aren't really useable for this (if levels use that a floater
should/could be added). Since floater don't accelerate and have a slow
constant speed, the bomber translation shouldn't cause to much of
height-loose, if any.
