Summary

Good, but it could be better...

The Good

Bomberman Special was based on the NES' Bomberman. Its idea was great, and its gameplay and graphics were good. Music and sound effects were also good, better even than the NES ones.

The Bad

NES version had a thing MSX version didn't: Bomberman speed. Bomberman, in MSX, was very slow, which affects Bomberman's search time. Bomberman needed to be quicker to find the exit, blow up the enemies and quit level.

The Bottom Line

Bomberman was a good game, even on MSX, with the Special release. If you want a good game for MSX, get and play it! But don't expect too much of it...
