Bomberman World is an arcade game that is the second in the Bomberman Arcade titles. It features a single and multiplayer mode that can support up to 4 players for each mode. It is a sequel to the original Bomberman game for Arcade.
As taken from the Arcade intro:
"King Bomber tried to reform himself but has reverted to his evil ways. He issued orders to robot armies throughout the world. This time he created chaos by taking control of the UN building. The Bomberman brothers thus began their ultimate battle to save the world from an evil take over."
In the original Bomberman Arcade game, King Bomber was a hero but suddenly turned evil. Once King Bomber was defeated, he was forced to do manual labor to atone for his crimes. Everyone believed he had become good again when he suddenly changed back to evil.
There are six worlds with six stages each. The player(s) must defeat all enemies on screen and then they proceed to the next level. Unlike traditional Bomberman gameplay, you do not have to find the exit to advance. After each stage the player(s) loses all their powers and must start off with one bomb and two fire again.
After the fifth stage in each world is a bonus stage. It's a stage filled with candy shaped soft blocks and they contain either power ups or items that offer points. Throughout the first five levels in a world are letter items hidden in the soft blocks that spell out the word BONUS. For each level acquired, it increased the amount of time in the bonus stage allowing the player(s) to collect more items.
There are a few unique items in this game like the ice cream cone which makes the player be able to use touch damage to kill their foes.
This game goes by different names for each region.
- USA - New Atomic Punk - Global Quest
- Europe - New Dynablaster - Global Quest
- Japan - Bomberman World
This game was created during a time when Bomberman's identity was subject to change. In Europe most games at the time were referred to as Dynablaster while in America it was common to see Atomic Punk in the title. However Japan has always used Bomberman as its title which eventually caught on for the rest of the world.
