Bomberman's Atomic Punk's first arcade outing and the first half of the Irem duology. King Bomber takes a turn to the dark side! Four player (unless you live in Japan) madness ensues.

Unused Enemy Graphics

This enemy, which normally hides behind a soft block disguise to protect itself from explosions, only appears in worlds 1 and 6. However, it has graphics for every world in the game.

Now you see me...
World 2 soft block design.

Now you don't!
World 3 soft block design.

A pretty disguise.
World 4. Uses the hard block design for whatever reason.

So cold...
World 5.

A soft block design seen nowhere in the final game.
