Bomberman (NES) Review.
The Story of a Robot.
If when being Kid, you had a Nintendo console (NES, Game Boy, SNES, N64, etc.) I bet you have heard about Hudson Soft... Yes, Hudson Soft. Even if it wasn't exactly a very famous company like others, It used to gave us pretty good games. (Such as the Adventure Island series) And... If you heard about Hudson Soft... I'm pretty sure you have also heard about Bomberman the Company's pet. Who hasn't played one of his games?, alone or with a bunch of friends (I say with friends because I'm pretty sure that the most part of you enjoyed of a Battle game on one of his games at least one time.) these used to gave us lots of fun when kids... Today, I'm going to talk about his least known
Game : The 1st. One... Which was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Time to take a seat, and enjoy this review.
Story: On the depths of the Earth, near to the center of the same... There's a big Underground factory. Which is under the control of Evil forces. Our Hero, Bomberman, is one of the Robots that are forced to work under the production of Bombs. However, Bomberman doesn't enjoys this work as the other Robots do. Once, our hero hears about a Legend, this Legend tells that if one Robot manages to escape to the surface, and it's touched by sunlight, it will become a Human. Bomberman decides to figure out if it's true by himself, unfortunately. The other robots of the Factory discover his plan... And then go after him it, The only defence of our Hero, are the Bombs that he produces. Armed only with those, and with his courage. He starts his adventure... (7/10)
Graphics: Let's be honest... Graphics aren't really good. Just take a Look at Bomberman's sprite: It doesn't look like a Robot. It looks more like an astronaut. However, the enemies are pretty decent. The only problem about these is that is the same enemy, but with other shape and color. (Which can be Blue, Orange or Red) Backgrounds are the worst part... It's the same over and over, with the same walls but in a different order. I think they could have done it better on this aspect. (5/10)
Sound: The good side: This game has a lot of different sounds... You can hear the sound of Bomberman walking (it can be annoying the 1st. Time... But with the time you get used to it.), the explosion of the Bombs, etc. Also, there are a few tracks on the game, luckily, these are quite good (Specially the tune that plays when you pass the stage.) (7/10)
Addictiveness: This game can be quite addictive, once you get used to the gameplay and difficulty, it can be pretty a pretty addictive game. (7/10)
Depth: This game has a good depth, The objective of every stage is defeating all the enemies on it , and then find the door that leads to the next one before you run out of time... This work that must be done with the Bombs. To make things easier, there are different items that can help you (Like the Flame, that upgrades the explosion of the bombs, or the Rollers, that upgrade the speed of Bomberman. The bad thing, is there's only one per stage...) There are 50 stages on this game, Also, there aren't two similar stages... Because the location of the exit door and the Items it's random. (7/10)
Difficulty: The difficulty on this game is fair... As long you progress, there will appear more enemies, everyone with different speed and skills. Thing that makes them hard to kill. Also, as said before, this game is completely random... So, you don't know what kind of Enemies and Items you'll find. (8/10)
Final Rating: 7.
This isn't one of the best Bomberman games out there... It has a few bad things on it, but, those are forgivable... Since it's the 1st. Game. If you like Bomberman games, you should give a try to this one. Just play it and you'll see how fun it can be.

Bomberman Box Description: Bomberman is a robot engaged in the production of bombs. Like his fellow robots, he had been put to work in an underground compound at the center of the Earth. Bomberman found it to be an unbearably dreadful existence. One day he learned that any robot escaping from the center of the Earth and able to make it to the surface will become human. Bomberman jumped at the opportunity. Alerted to Bomberman's betrayal, large numbers of enemy characters were sent out in pursuit. Bomberman can only rely on bombs of his own production for his defense. Once there, will he really become human?
Bomberman Description: Bomberman was a robot in a bomb making factory who longed for his freedom. Rumors circulated that escaping to the surface would allow the robot to become human. Getting out would be the trick. Each room is inhabited by monsters that must be neutralized and the exit itself hidden underneath bricks.The first of the Bomberman series. Bomberman is a single player game with a top down view and simplistic controls. In fact, in addition to movement, you only have a single ability: placing bombs. Each bomb explodes into a cross-shaped blast (4 directions) which can destroy either enemies or blocks. Power-ups may be found to increase the size of the blast, place additional bombs, increase the speed of the Bomberman or to walk through walls. Your goal on each level is to destroy all enemies and escape through the exit before the time limit is up.. Hitting the exit with a bomb blast releases more enemies which must also be destroyed.
