    Bomber Man © 1990 Hudson Soft.

    Bomberman is an action game by Hudson Soft and the first episode of the iconic series to be released for the PC Engine system. The villainous black Bomberman is on a diabolical mission to control the world, and he has kidnapped Lisa, Dr Mimori's daughter. The genius doctor, inventor and creator of the Bombermen, sends Shirobon, the cute protagonist of the game with his odd looking helmet and tight uniform, to rescue Lisa and traverse the numerous floors of black Bomberman's heavily guarded castle. The goal of the game is rather simple - the player must complete each level by eliminating all the roaming critters that populate them, find the exit door and move up to the next level. But the meat of the game lies elsewhere... Bomberman comes equipped with bombs, and these bombs come with a bit of a twist - they don't explode when dropped or on contact. Instead, they only ignite when their time fuse run out, or if hit by the blast from another bomb. Additionally, bombs create lethal walls of fire in four directions and players must imperatively stay away from their blasting range. That's it, just pepper a power-up icon hidden in each level (such as the ability to drop more bombs, increase their destructive range, walk through walls or remote control bombs), and here you have one of the simplest and yet most addictive concept in video game history. Of course, any Bomberman game wouldn't be complete without a multi-player option, and this version includes such treat and gives up to five players the chance to battle one another in frantic dead matches. As a side note, this version of Bomberman is also compatible with the 'com' link that allows two PC Engine GT owners to fight one another in intense versus battles. Bomberman consists of eight worlds made our of eight levels each and also features a password system to resume play on specific levels.
