Bomberman (also known as Dynablaster in Europe) was the first game of the series to be released on the TurboGrafx-16 console, before Bomberman '93 and Mega Bomberman ('94). It is loosely based on the original game, though the inclusion of differently-themed worlds, bosses and multiplayer would make it the basis for later games.
In the future, Dr. Mitsumori developed the second Bomberman unit, Black Bomberman, based on the design of the original and his ability to think and reason for himself. However, there was a programming error. One day, Black Bomberman goes berserk and kidnaps the good doctor's daughter, Lisa, taking her to the top of a mechanical castle. Witnessing this crooked event, Bomberman wastes no time to save her by defeating Black Bomberman's army of monsters.
The English manual had a few details not present in the Japanese storyline. It specified that Bomberman was the first robot created by Dr. Mitsumori, and was strictly programmed for justice due to his potential. It also mentions that it takes place hundreds of years from the present.
There are eight stages in the game.
- Stage 1: The Wall
- Stage 2: Rocky Mountains
- Stage 3: River
- Stage 4: Forest
- Stage 5: Lava Cave
- Stage 6: Inside of the Castle, Part I
- Stage 7: Inside of the Castle, Part II
- Stage 8: Inside of the Castle, Part III (Final Stage)
Bomberman supports up to 5 players in multiplay mode. It plays identically to the single player, although the items are limited to Bomb Ups and Fire Ups. There is also a Skull mode, in which Skull items are found, with similar detrimental effects to those in other Bomberman multiplayer modes.
For one reason or another, the game was released in Europe on Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, and MS-DOS, under the name Dyna Blaster.
- Most of the music in this game is remixed and can be heard in the Super Bomberman and Panic Bomber Series.
