Hidden Battle Stages

Two battle stages are hidden in the game. The actual method of accessing these stages is unknown, though it's probably similar to the method used in Super Bomberman 2. PAR codes can also be used to select these stages.

Stage 11

Damn you HudsonStarry night

Use PAR code 7E6C6E:0B to access this stage.

Swaying balls

A spaceship flies below the stage. The green blocks will detonate when hit by a bomb. The purple orbs will turn around when walked through.

Stage 12

Joy JoyNot sure where to go now

Use PAR code 7E6C6E:0C to access this stage.

Makes sense

The arrow blocks will move in the displayed direction when hit by a bomb's flame.

Unused Graphics

Eggy eggy

An unused egg power-up icon. This may have been a placeholder for the sprite-based egg used in-game.

Unused Text

Development text left in the ROM. Looks like they upgraded the Multi5 Bios since Super Bomberman 2. The Sound Driver text is new, too.
