Vintage Video Games #30 – Super Bomberman
Super Bomberman is an action game for the SNES and was released way back in 1993. It’s one of the first four player games to ever be produced for the SNES and is also the first game in the Super Bomberman series. Blowing stuff up has never been more fun! The gameplay is a traditional style for Bomberman veterans. The game is played on a grid-like area and the player must set bombs to destroy the enemies on the map. When all the enemies are defeated, the player must find the exit
Special items appear for ammo supply as players destroy walls, enemies, or opponent Bombermen.
Story: Far to the north of BomberMan’s hometown, Peace Town, lies the modern metropolis Diamond City. There, the evil Carat Diamond and his cohort, scientist Dr. Mook, are holding a Robot Tournament with robots specially designed for their combat and offensive capabilities. Hoping to steal BomberMan’s advanced combat capabilities, Diamond has created a fake BomberMan to go to Peace Town and kidnap the real BomberMan. Aware of Diamond’s plot, Black BomberMan heads out alone to face the fake BomberMan. But Black BomberMan is defeated and his castle is taken. Somehow Black BomberMan escapes and seeks refuge with White BomberMan, and warns him of Diamond’s evil plan. Soon, wave upon wave of enemy robots begin their advance toward Peace Town. Now our two heroes must join forces to overthrow the evil Diamond !!
Highlights: The game really comes alive in multi-player mode where you blast and explode your way through 12 different themed stages. Battle Mode can be extremely fast paced and hectic, reflected in the fast paced music score that accompanies it. The Speed Round, which is Stage 12, is considered to be the most competitive as it requires great amounts of skill to control the fast-paced players and bomb detonation.
