Someone has stolen the golden Bomberman statue, the pride of peaceful Bomberman Town. Bomberman, the town peacekeeper and our hero, set out to find the stolen statue. During his investigation, he met a stranger who seemed a likely suspect for the crime and chased him into a warphole. Now, you must join Bomberman on his journey to recover the stolen statue and restore the symbol of Bomberman Town.
The gameplay is fundamentally the same as in the previous entries in the long-running series. You must go around a block-filled maze laying bombs to clear your way and take out your opponents. The Bomberman series includes a power-up which lets you drop detonator-equipped bombs. In previous installments, players triggered these bombs by tapping a button. In the DS version, you have to shout something into the system's microphone in order to make the bombs go off.
