Wario vs. Bomberman? Oughta work.

The first properly-titled Bomberman game on the Game Boy, and one of (perhaps literally) a handful of Game Boy games compatible with the SNES' four-player multitap via the Super Game Boy. Just hope you don't mind a small playing space.

Regional Differences

Different Characters

In Wario Blast, the player either selects Wario or Bomberman and goes through the entire game as that character, while the character that isn't selected appears as the enemies that must be blown up, differentiated from the player's character by their darker coloring (and in Wario's case, different aesthetics for each Bomberman that Wario fights). In Bomberman GB, only Bomberman himself is playable, and he fights the three dark-colored Bombermen that Wario fights in Blast if Wario is the player's character.

SGB Border

Per his inclusion, Wario replaces a blue Bomberman on the SGB border of the international versions.

Story

"Bomberman was patrolling on his Motobomber..."

In the Japanese version, a short story sequence plays after a few seconds of waiting on the title screen. Due to the entirely different story, Wario Blast excludes it.
