Bomberman is a strategic, maze-based computer and video game franchise originally developed by Hudson Soft. The original game was published in 1983 and new games in the series are still being published to this day. Today, Bomberman is featured in over 60 different games. Being commercially successful, with over 10 million units of games sold, the series "has since become known as the first name in multiplayer games".
Occasionally, Bomberman games feature the grid-base action. Players are put in a stage where they have to destroy soft blocks, possibly uncovering items. New items have been created for different games, while some have been a permanent power-up. Items may be necessary to defeat opponents. When one is bombed, the player is "dead".
Player capacity has risen from two players to ten players. Online play is also available.
