The 11th planet of Bomber Nebula, named Owen, faces a sudden earthquake. Deep within its underground, the terrible Evil Bomber had been trapped for ages. He finally rises to power and steals the Bomber Capsules from Bomberman. Bomberman and his friends then vow to take back the Capsules and defeat Evil Bomber...
GameplayThe game features traditional Bomberman gameplay where the player must use bombs to defeat enemies on a grid-like map. At the beginning of each stage, a different object is displayed that must be completed to clear it. There are five stages and a boss stage in every level. Every fifth level involves collecting gems on the map, and if the player collects enough, two bell items will appear near the exit. These two items will offer the player help during the boss fight. A White Bomber will appear and drop items, and a Black Bomber will appear to injure one HP on the boss.
The player can select which stage they want to play, but must clear all three stages to advance to the next series. After doing this twice, they can access the final area, called Evil, where Evil Bomber awaits.
MotorcyclesAfter defeating a boss, they leave behind Bomb Capsules that can be used in the shop. The player is then taken to the shop screen, where they can purchase abilities. There are eight abilities, and four of them are motorcycles. After purchasing one, the player can select them before each level, each offering additional HP and (except for the first one) other abilities. The game has exactly enough Bomb Capsules to purchase everything in the shop.
The previous Bomberman GB titles featured a motorcycle as a reward, but only featured one. They did not have this much variety.
