1001 Video Games

The PC Engine version of Bomberman appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Cancelled C64 version

A C64 version was planned, and advertised as if released, but never completed. This version was to only support three players.


The released versions supported five players, a fact memorably illustrated on an episode of the UK TV show Gamesmaster, when the five members of the pop group Take That played it as part of a challenge.
