Player's Review

One of the earliest Bomberman titles in the series.

The Japanese version was marketed as 'Bomber Man' while in the US it was named without the space in between, for some unknown reason. However, there are slight differences, especially at the ending where it explicitly mentions the character comes back in Lode Runner, something that was removed from the localized version.

This longplay is a bit different from others since this one shows off the secret ways of getting points in this game, though I did NOT do that with the intention of scoring too high or anything. I'm pretty sure only a few people know that the player cannot die in the Bonus levels, neither by explosions nor by touching the enemies, thus allowing to use the 'chain reaction' trick to kill large groups of enemies, regardless of whether the player is equipping the Flameproof powerup or not.

Only two bonuses couldn't be shown since they seem to be difficult to trigger: the Famicom item (50,000 points and requires detonating 248 bombs in chain WITHOUT the Detonator powerup) and some guy's face (10 million points and requires beating all enemies without destroying a single wall).
