BOMBERMAN thread (17)

What's the best, the definitive, the most downright fun version of (multiplayer) bomberman? And come to think of it, which of the singleplayer modes are actually worth a shit?

As far as multiplayer is concerned, it seems like Hudson are leaving out this or that feature or powerup or putting in something stupid that you can't switch off in every installment...Almost like they're doing it on purpose, so people will buy the next game in the hope it has the truly "perfect" multiplayer.

Best Bomberman game was Bomberman 64, the single player levels were fun and varied and the multiplayer was too much fun.

Oh no, the best was number five on the SNES. Amazing single and multi player with kangaroos.

No, the best was Bomberman '84 on the PC Engine. No contest.

Bomberman Online is quite enjoyable.

Super Bomberman '95.

Bomberman on DS is quite good also (not bomberman land crap, just "bomberman").

i'd go for Bomberman Story DS over Bomberman DS... the single player game is at least moderately entertaining (it's an action RPG, not bomberman land minigame shit), and the multi is basically an upgraded version of bomberman DS with wi-fi and stuff. (the exactly same multiplayer is actually including in bomberman land 2, the version in land 1 is similar but forces annoying bots in wifi mode)

Mhh, I'm not convinced about Story DS. I mean, when I want to play bomberman, I expect a grid filled with spaces, blocks, unbreakables, monsters, and boom blast my way through. Not really anything else. That said, WiFi battles should be great, except I lag way too much in most of the games for a bomberman session to be enjoyable I think.

Second that.

Also, does anyone knows a good bomberman pc version that isn't in jap?

Bomber 95 was pretty decent IMO.

Atomic Bomberman wins, hands down. All the best powerups can be used, and by every player. Blast extender, remote bombs, the glove, the boot, etc. Supports up to ten people.

No Way, The Fanmade Bomberman Ikiji ownz all.

There's an old Bomberman clone that was a favorite of mine for years. Recently we played it again for nostalgia with childhood friends, and fuck it still kicks ass.

Game's called DStroy. Went freeware 2 years ago, someone picked it up and made an enhanced XP compatible version, but I recommend playing the old one on DosBox for full enjoyment (better sound and music).

-Awesome MOD music (though the XP version lacks some channels for some reason)
-Lots of cool bonus, the "?" ones being either very good or bad as opposed to Bomberman's diseases
-A coop mode
-Scrolling Split-screen
-Monsters have a good IA (either in adventure or battle modes)
-Monster form bonus = best fucking idea ever
-There's a DS version though I did not test it yet on the adaptations website. Apparently works fine but lacks sound and multiplayer for now.

-The old version is only in french (well, not that the menus are that complicated anyway)
-No bombkick or grab

Original version:

"Updated" versions:
