Okay, so it doesn't have a multiplayer mode. Disregarding that, the original "Bomberman" is still quite fun and satisfying to play, with fifty levels of blocks and baddies to blast through. It lacks the bells and whistles of later Bomberman games (no kicking bombs, no throwing bombs, no warp holes or trampolines), but the action still comes off well. The enemies are varied in both appearance and behavior, and the really cool power-ups (like the remote control, or the ability to walk through solid blocks) are present and accounted for.
Oh, and as another point for the plus column, this game was made long before Max, Pommy, the Hige Hige Bandits, or those darned Charaboms showed up. So, there's that.
If you're a fan of the classic Bomberman gameplay, but you've never sampled his inaugural outing, you should give this a try.
