A playthrough of Hudson’s 1993 action puzzle game for the Super NES, Super Bomberman.
Played through the single-player “normal” mode.
Hudson’s first Bomberman game for the Super NES was wildly popular when it was first released. Not only did it give the graphics and sound a huge upgrade over the (good but largely ignored) Bomberman II released the year before for the NES. It also came packaged with the multitap, which let you hook up give controllers at once to the system, allowing for four players to play the game’s infamous battle mode simultaneously (5P support wasn’t included until SBM3 was released in 1995).
For our European friends, this installment also marks the first time a game in the series kept the original name for a PAL release instead of being renamed Dynablaster.
Super Bomberman is an awesome game, no doubt. It was far outclassed by later entries in the series, but there’s no denying the sheer brilliance of the gameplay here.
No cheats were used during the recording of this video.
