Bomberman is one of two arcade games published by Irem. It features a single and multiplayer mode and goes by different names in each region it was released in. A sequel was created a year later called Bomberman World for the arcade as well.
As taken from the game's normal mode intro:
"In the year 2091, robot contests have gained popularity. Bomberman and King Bomber have become the best robot team in the world. One day, King Bomber turns and suddenly attacks mankind. Bomberman and his brother, Bomberman 2, must confront King Bomber and defend the people."
In the early days of Bomberman games it was common to see Black Bomberman become the villain. King Bomber takes that place in this game and World. It never explains exactly what happens to cause King Bomber to become evil. It's assumed since they are robots that it is a malfunction with their system.
The player must defeat all the enemies on screen to advance to the next level. Unlike most Bomberman titles, you do not have to find the exit to advance. Your power ups reset to their default abilities on each stage with items being readily available at the start of each boss fight. There are six stages in each world and six worlds total. This mode can support up to 4 players in co-op.
- Stage 1
- Stage 2
- Stage 3
- Stage 4
- Stage 5
- Stage 6
For starters, there are the names.
- USA - Atomic Punk
- Europe - Dynablaster
- Japan - Bomberman
The JP version is rumored to only support two players in each mode while the other versions can handle up to 4.
