Fun Fact: The story goes that Bomberman was entirely programmed by Shinichi Nakamoto over three days with no sleep.

Bomberman was the first in a long-running series of games. The goal was to plant bombs within mazes and use the explosions, which filled the maze corridors with flame, to destroy monsters and open up new paths. Collecting power-ups allowed the Bomberman to run faster, phase through walls, or made bombs more powerful.
