Back of Box - GBA (US):
    Play the original bomb-droppin' Classic NES game for the Game Boy Advance!

    Bomberman's innovative fusion of rapid-fire action and calculating strategy redefined the overhead action genre and made the bomb-making robot a household name. Now you can play the explosively innovative Classic NES game on your Game Boy Advance! Deep below the surface of the earth, Bomberman toiled for years under the rule of evil taskmasters, but now he's planning a daring escape! Drop bombs to blow up ruthless enemies, demolish walls, and make a break for freedom!

    Ready or not: Here comes the BOOM!


    • Famous puzzle/action blend
    • Demolish walls to clear stages
    • Save progress and high score

    The game that spawned more than 15 others, Bomberman combines action with puzzle-solving and has turned generations of regular gamers into mad (virtual) bombers. The frenzy returns for the Game Boy Advance in the NES Classics series.

    As the title character, you blow up bricks on the field of play in an effort to find the door to the next level. At first, you can only lay one bomb down at a time. In addition to getting out of the way of your own bomb, you have an assortment of enemies you must blow up.

    In each stage, you find power-ups that make clearing away blocks easier by extending your blast radius. However, if you're caught in your own bomb blast, you'll have to start the level over.

    Bottom Line

    Like all good games, Bomberman is easy to learn but tough to master.

    Easy to Learn, Tough to Master

    Equal parts puzzle and pow, Bomberman is still one of the most compulsively playable games of all time. Lay bombs to blow up erratically moving enemies, demolish walls and find the door to the next level.

    Power-ups give you more powerful bombs, but make sure you’re clear of that blast radius. Charming graphics adorn a game that’s easy to learn but tough to master.
