Welcome to our special Bombaman page. After the game was released, back in 2004, we have sold quite a few copies of the game. However, because we are so proud of the game, we want as much people as possible to enjoy the game. Therefore, from now on, the game is freeware!
You can download Bombaman and some extra stuff on the download page.
Bombaman is a game based on Hudson's Bomberman series, and was developed for the MSX. Bombaman has been in development for quite a while (a few years actually), resulting in a polished game with a lot of new stuff and interesting features.
If you are interested in how the game came to be, you can read more in the making of Bombaman. There's also a lot of extra information on the game, like progress reports, extra downloads, news items and more available on the old Bombaman site: http://www.teambomba.net/bombaman/.
To celebrate this special occasion, we have created a special edition of the game: Bombaman Extra Ammo. Apart from the unlockables and difficulty settings that were present in the original game, we have expanded the game with some fresh new content. Most notable is the Extra Ammo substory, with its own world, boss and demos. A must play for everybody!
The original game was released for the MSX. Because not everybody has an retro home computer or a suitably configured emulator, we teamed up with the BlueMSX team. Together, we created a special version of the BlueMSX emulator and bundled it with Bombaman Extra Ammo to make the game easily accessible for every user.
Still looking for the original game? Contact Sunrise and ask if they still have copies on sale! The original game comes on 2 disks, in nice box along with a manual and a CD filled with a lot of bonus materials.
Bombaman is quite a big game, with a lot of extras and options. Apart from the gameplay you expect from normal Bomberman games, we also added some extra materials. The highlight is probably being able to play with 4 people at the same time in multiplayer mode! Also, there's a big (60+ levels) single player mode with a storyline and bossmonsters and 3 different difficulty levels. Did I already mention that the game is available in 8 different languages?
Here's a brief summary of what you can expect:
Of course, you are curious what the game looks like! Check out a small selection of screenshots here. And don't forget to have a look at the movies below to get a good impression of the game.
We also made some movies of the game, so you can get a good feel of what the game is like. Have fun with these movies!
The game is available in 3 different versions: a PC version, an MSX version and an MSX emulator version. To play the PC version you will need Windows XP or higher, a Pentium 4 or Athlon 1.4ghz or better and a videocard with more than 32MB of RAM. With this configuration, all settings will be maxed out and you will be able to enjoy the game to the fullest.
For the MSX version you will either need a real MSX2 computer or an MSX emulator. At minimum you will need an MSX2 with 128kB RAM and 128kB VRAM, a disk drive or harddisk, and an MSX-Music, MSX Audio or Moonsound for music.
Because Bombaman is quite a big project, there's a lot of different goodies to download. Most of these are optional, and just for fun. You only need a Bombaman download above to play the game.
