Unlike the previous stages of the game, all seven areas of the Battleship are linked together, with no exit goal - the end of the stage is the final boss. Bomberman ascends the Battleship by way of elevators. If all lives are lost and the player decides to continue the game from the Game Over screen, the player must start all the way back at the beginning of the stage, in Area 1. The player must restart the stage even if he or she had reached the final boss.
