Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman!, known in Japan as Bomberman GB, is a video game released on Game Boy in 1994. It is the first entry in the Bomberman GB spinoff series. The game was renamed Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman! for western releases, and featured the addition of Wario, as well as some changes in the story, but aside from that, the game remains mostly unchanged.


Wario Blast

One day, as Wario went out for a stroll, he came across Bomberman's world; Wario began to pillage the world for treasure in hopes of becoming rich. Only Bomberman can stop Wario's greedy, yet evil plans. It is up to the player who succeeds.

Bomberman GB

Bomberman is out for a stroll one day on his Moto, when suddenly he is ambushed by a group of Black Bombermen and is tackled, resulting in five of his Power-Ups- Kick, the Dash Shoes, the Trouncer, Line Bomb, and the aforementioned Moto, being forcibly taken by the Black Bombermen. Determined to get his prized possessions back, Bomberman races out to stop the dark bombers.


The player can choose to play as either Wario or Bomberman, but this doesn't change the gameplay. There are eight worlds in total including three regular levels and one boss level each.

The gameplay is similar to other Bomberman games. The player has to blow up his or her enemies via the use of bombs to advance. The player maneuvers around a grid-like playing field, setting off bombs to blow up unsuspecting enemies and destroy walls to clear the way and to reveal occasional power-ups. The player wins by defeating the enemy character and the other Bombermen or False Warios. The player must win two of the three rounds to advance to the next level.


The following list uses the Japanese names for the bosses from the original game Bomberman GB.


When playing the game on the Super NES with a Super Game Boy, an additional multiplayer mode for up to four players is available. There are a total of eight stages, each of them based on their design and characteristics of the stages of the normal mode.

  • Norio Ohkubo, game designer for this and many Bomberman games, runs a Twitter handle called Nori_Bomber. He has made many posts relating to this game including images of concept art. It's been revealed that the Moto Bomber is based on Honda's Motocompo and that the boss Inapikarin was initially called Thunder Sugiyama after a pro wrestler who appeared on children's TV programs.
  • Norio has also revealed that when the game was being created, they decided it would need another character to broaden the appeal to the market in the United States. Mario was originally considered but they felt it wasn't a good idea to associate Mario's image with bombs. They decided on Wario since he is a villain and it would be seen as more acceptable for him to use bombs.
