Bomberman was a robot in a bomb making factory who longed for his freedom. Rumors circulated that escaping to the surface would allow the robot to become human. Getting out would be the trick. Each room is inhabited by monsters that must be neutralized and the exit itself hidden underneath bricks.
The first of the Bomberman series, Bomberman
is a single-player game with a top down view and simplistic controls. In fact, in addition to movement, you only have a single ability: placing bombs. Each bomb explodes into a cross-shaped blast (four directions) which can destroy either enemies or blocks. Power-ups may be found to increase the size of the blast, place additional bombs, increase the speed of the Bomberman or to walk through walls. Your goal on each level is to destroy all enemies and escape through the exit before the time limit is up. Hitting the exit with a bomb blast releases more enemies which must also be destroyed.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
The NES/Famicom version of the game was programmed entirely by Shinichi Nakamoto
in three sleepless days...incredible for a game that ended up selling over a million copies. Apparently Nakamoto had a habit of chewing gum as he programmed, and when he ran out of gum he started chewing on pencils instead without even looking away from the screen.
