Suddenly the figures of Magnet Bomber, Golem Bomber, Pretty Bomber, Brain Bomber, and Plasma Bomber appear before our hero, BomberMan. These five cyborgs, called the "Five Bad Bombers", say they have been built by aliens who plan to take over the universe, and that they have come to capture the original BomberMan. Though BomberMan valiantly attempts to fight off the Five Bad Bombers, he is taken captive. Later, BomberMan awakens in an underground prison cell in the base of the Five Bad Bombers. And once again he rises to protect world peace. Our future is in his hands. He must fight hordes of enemies scattered throughout the huge alien base. Avoid countless traps which have been set for him. Only then can he face the Five Bad Bombers who await him...

PLAYING A NORMAL GAME Playing the Game Insert the game pak into the Super Nintendo Entertainment System(C), and turn the Power Switch ON. Press the A Button to bring up the Title Screen, select NORMAL GAME, and press the Start Button to start the game. A stage is cleared by entering the gate which opens once all enemies or capsules on that stage are destroyed using bombs. Some enemies are hidden inside blocks. One BomberMan is deducted from your BomberMan stock if you touch an enemy, are hit by enemy fire, get caught in a trap, or fail to clear a stage within the given time limit. Once you lose a turn you must start the same stage from the beginning. The game is over once your BomberMan stock reaches zero. The Game Screen Remaining Time This shows the remaining time to clear the stage. You lose a turn if this timer reaches 0:00. Score Your score increases as you defeat enemies. Playfield [ThatŐs where you play.] BomberMan [ThatŐs you.] BomberMan Stock This shows the remaining number of BomberMen that the player has in stock. This stock is decreased by one each time a turn is lost. When this number reads "0" and the player loses the last BomberMan, the game is over. Number of Bombs This shows the maximum number of bombs that BomberMan can lay. Fire Power This shows BomberManŐs current fire power (the range of his bombs). Continuing Gameplay and Passwords After a game is over, you can continue a game from the last stage reached by selecting "YES" on the Continue Screen and pressing the Start Button. If you write down the 4-digit code that appears on the Continue Screen, you can continue the game from that point at a later time. To do this, select "PASSWORD" on the Title Screen to call up the Password Entry Screen. Use the Up and Down buttons on the Control Pad to select the numbers, and the Left and Right buttons to change digits. Then press the Start Button to continue the game. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (6) Hints for the Normal Game! There are two basic ways to clear a stage. One way is to destroy all enemies on the screen. Remember! Some enemies hide inside soft blocks! The other way is to destroy all capsules on the screen. Be careful not to blow up the gates you enter at stage clear. If you blast the gate, this will cause more enemies to appear. Most stages must be cleared both ways. You can steal enemy vehicles and ride them. Some soft blocks restore themselves. Some stairs are destroyed by bomb blasts. Try to clear all stages by avoiding all the dangerous traps!! Capsule Types Stage 1, 2 These [rectangular] capsules can be destroyed when hit by a bomb blast. Stage 3, 4, 5 These [circular] capsules change color each time they are hit by a bomb blast. Make them all glow. The Stages Round 1 Old Castle stage. Be careful! The bossŐs bombs stick to BomberMan! [Sticks of dynamite:] These bombs will blow up if destroyed. Beware that the resulting bomb blast reaches up to four squares away on the grid. These magnets will attract laid bombs. If hit by a bomb blast, their directions will change. Any bombs laid on these [red circular] spots will explode at maximum range. [Picture of] Magnet Bomber Round 2 Red hot stage with blowing flames. Even BomberMan can be burnt to a crisp in seconds if caught in the flame of the melting furnace. Laying a bomb in front of the door to the furnace causes a flame to ignite. After that flames blow out periodically from trenches in the ground. [White squares:] Ground sections like this can be moved when hit by a bomb blast. This fact can be used to cover holes in the ground. Hidden movable ground selections can be revealed by hitting this [glowing red] switch with a bomb blast. [Picture of] Fire Bomber ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (7) Round 3 [Yellow & green ringed spots:] On ground sections like this the Control Pad can be used to make BomberMan jump over blocks and other obstacles. Entering the cannons causes BomberMan to be blown out so that he can get to the other side of the pool. Once boarded, the ship will move so that BomberMan can cross to the bridge girders on the central island. [Picture of] Pretty Bomber Round 4 These steel spheres cannot be destroyed. You will lose a turn if you fall into a ground section surrounded by these spheres. Floating ground sections can be used to reach the isolated floating island. These ground sections never stop moving. [Gray switch:] Hidden floating ground switches can be revealed by hitting this switch with a bomb blast. [Picture of] Brain Bomber Round 5 [Light switch:] This darkened stage can be lit up by hitting this switch with a bomb blast. Land mines will blow up if touched. Some mines cannot be detected until you get close to them. Some ground sections will crack when crossed once and become a hole when crossed a second time. [Picture of] Plasma Bomber Enemy Characters Munchie Jump Gobbles up bombs you have laid. DISTRUCTION SWITCH Guardi Can be defeated by blowing up the HP switch. Electro Emits electric energy in four directions if approached. Mini Bomber Increases your BomberMan stock by one when picked up. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (8) PLAYING A BATTLE GAME A Battle Game is a game played in versus mode against other players or the computer. 3 to 4 player games require the use of the Super Multitap(TM) and the use of any SNES controllers. Battle Game Rules In a Battle Game, players attack each other with their bombs. The last surviving player (or team) wins one battle. A draw game results in a rematch if both players are hit by an explosion simultaneously or if time runs out. The first player to win the number of battles selected on the Player Select Screen wins the game. The fight continues until someone wins the number of battles selected on the Player Select Screen! Single Match This game is conducted in a Battle Royal format where each player fends for him or herself. Control your BomberMan with skill and match wits against other players. Tag Team Match In a Tag Team Match, players are separated into two teams which fight against each other. When all members of the opposing team are destroyed, the team with even one survivor left wins one battle. The best way to attain victory is through cooperation. Sudden Death Mode In Battle Mode a rematch occurs if a battle ends in a draw. But a Sudden Death Mode is available for those who want victory to be decided in a single battle. Try starting the game after entering the password "5656". When time starts to run out, blocks will begin flying on-screen from beyond the screen edges. The player who survives without getting squashed wins! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (9) Golden Bomber What is Golden Bomber, available only in Single Matches? The G-Bomber feature is only available during single matches and is useful when fighting many battles. By setting this feature to "ON"... The BomberMan who wins each match... Will appear in gold for the next battle. As a special reward the winner receives an extra powerup item before starting the next battle. This item is determined by chance from a roulette wheel. Get your powerup item from the roulette wheel and go on to more victories!! If you hit the clogs you will move more slowly. This is a booby prize! Starting the Game On the Title Screen, select "BATTLE GAME" and start the game as described below. If no Super Multitap(TM) is connected, only "COM" or "OFF" are available for 3 or 4 player games. Selecting the Mode You Wish to Play First select whether you wish to fight in a Single Match or a Tag Team Match. Selecting Players Select whether each of the players 1 through 4 is to be controlled by "MAN" (a human), "COM" (the computer), or "OFF" (not used).

Picking up items is important in order to win in Battle Mode. The Skull Item can be blown using bomb blasts. You may even be able to hit another BomberMan with it. Also, you can attack a BomberMan stuck in a dead end like this if you have obtained the Power Grab Item. You win if you can throw a bomb and trap your opponent like this. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (11) BATTLE GAME STAGES Stage 1 This is a normal stage without any traps. Items hidden in blocks are the keys to winning. Stage 2 This stage is slippery with ice and includes six warp holes. Blocks can be moved by pushing against them. Stage 3 This stage is separated into outside and inside sections by destructible blocks aligned in rows. Warp tunnels are located at the top and bottom of the screen. Stage 4 On this stage, drum-shaped soft blocks have been lined up. If a bomb blast hits the trench dug around the center it will ignite a fire that travels throughout the trench. Stage 5 On this stage, leaves block your field of vision. Full power ground sections, allowing bombs to blow up with maximum fire power, are hidden under flower garden blocks. Stage 6 There are two sets of warp zones included on this stage. You may move from red to red or from blue to blue warp zones. Stage 7 On this stage, BomberMan will travel at different speeds after passing through the numbered signs. If he touches a mark he will be immobile for several seconds. Stage 8 On this stage, belt conveyors can be used to transport bombs. The switches in the center of the screen can be used to change the speed and direction of the belt conveyors. Stage 9 After obtaining a Kick Item, any bomb kicked over an arrow on the ground will turn and move in the direction of that arrow. Stage 10 On this stage, BomberMan can be made to jump using the Y Button so that he can move on top of the blocks. BomberMan can also jump across screen borders to appear on the other side. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (12) ITEMS Items may appear when soft blocks are destroyed.
