Trivia

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.

Multiplayer

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.
