Bomberman Unofficially Blasts Onto The Sega Master System

Bomberman-Blasts-The-Sega-Master-SystemDespite Bomberman's first arrival in 1983, it took an entire decade before Hudson Soft's iconic blaster arrived on Sega hardware with Mega Bomberman. Having skipped out on earlier hardware from Nintendo's nearest rival, a trio of homebrew developers have made amends by unofficially porting Bomberman to the Sega Master System in BOoM.

Seeing Bomberman on early Sega hardware isn't the only good thing to come from this retro gaming news. BOoM itself is an incredibly notable homebrew release for being the very first four player title to grace the Sega Master System. While there is no readily available multitap for Sega's 8-bit system, those interested will have to grab a soldering iron and follow these complex instructions, as every Master System emulator out there currently is unable to differentiate between each player's input.

Technical feats aside, BOoM is a rather detailed offering for the Sega Master System, one we'd even dare say puts Nintendo's 8-bit equivalent Dynablaster to shame from a graphical standpoint. That said, BOoM is still very much a work in progress which is currently lacking audio, destructible blocks and alternative stages - something the game's developer has already stated he is working on.

This all new release comes via SMSPower's latest coding competition, one which has also brought along a tech demo of Bruce Lee's home computer classic on the Master System.
