Bomberman is a maze-based video game developed by Hudson Soft. As the first console incarnation, it is widely considered the first "true" game in the Bomberman series. Its mechanics are still used in the series' games today.
The player must navigate Bomberman through a maze by destroying soft blocks and enemies with his bombs. Hidden in every stage is one item that will either increase his blast radius, speed, or number of bombs he can lay at one time. The player must find the goal that is hidden under one of the soft blocks and defeat all the enemies to open it. If the player's bomb touches the goal after its exposed, it will create more enemies. There are 50 levels in total, and a password system is used to continue the game.
