friends, deadly foes, and tons of puzzles.

    This is an Action game, featuring Mini-Games and a RPG-Based Game.

[Deep Space. On the rim of ... Bomber Galaxy, on planet Phantarion... 5 meteors
came crashing down...]

    They created Fortress that controled the planet...
    An adventurer, Max, tried to tackle the enemies inside the Fortresses, but
he lost...

Doc: [Come in! Come in! It's me, Doc! Remember the SOS from Phantarion that Max
     went to check out?]

Bomberman: [Yeah. Last week, he reported some strange fortress been built
           there. We haven't heard from him since, and can't get in contact
           with him.]

Doc: [That's where you come in. Go to Phantarion and find Max. You'll need to
     look around first. It's up to you, Bomberman!]

- goto L2 to continue to L. Forest.

-L. Forest-

   Head West (bombing vines), into the warp hole, head North-East (kill all
enemies), into the warp hole, and come up near a trapped Pommy. Place bombs at
the 2 sides of the vine to free Pommy. Pick up the Ring. Back to the warp hole,
and head North. Navigate until you find Louie. Head back to Alpha next.

-Alpha-

- goto Honey's house to return the Ring and get a Sm. Med. On your way out,
  Pommy will stop you and talk, then join you.

  Louie's picture. He will also give you the Sensor.
- goto the bomb shop and fuse a new bomb: Landmine.

-Plains-

    Navigate West. Remember to power-up your Karabon with panels.

-ColdSea-

    Keep going West. Head North, and watch for a weak wall on the top-right
side. Bomb it and go inside for a tip for the future. Now head South-West.
Navigate through the 2 sets of of islands, ending ultimately on the North-East
side. Continue North.

-ShuraRd-
    Try to go East, zig-zaging your way through the place. When you reach a
small canyon, you will be shot back by arrows. Ceedrun will appear and play
a mini-game with you. Win, equip Ceedrun, and continue North, blocking the
arrows.

    Okay, this is optional, but I am going to say it anyways: you are going to
get yourself 3 new Karabons!

Elekong: at the Desert, wander around until you find a small oasis. Enter it
         and Elekong will join you. Be patient, my records for finding it is
         15 minutes of crazy dashing with Pommy Animal equipped.
Th. Tiger: remember the cave where you got the Disinfectant? Keep continuing
           deeper down the cave, use Dorako to light the rooms, and you will
           find a humble T. Tiger at the end.
FireKong: Remember ColdSeas? The first place where you've learned how to bomb
          sapins to make bridges? Well, there is a temple there, and if you use
          Sibaloon's power, you can build a bridge to the temple, where
          FireKong awaits his next master.

    Once you are done, just head for the lower cave at the entrance of the
Desert, when you come from Ita. Continue South to find Omega, a hidden place
where you can find Unagi and can't be teleported to.

-Volcano-

   Watch out for falling Meteors and lava. Make your way West, as fast as you
can, to make it in one shot. Keep going West and enter the cave. Exit and head
North-East asap to stealth through the lava. Head up the the stairs, and into
the East cave. Exit and head down the stairs. The girl wants Teriyaki Beef, so
give it to her and recieve a heart. Pretty nice trade, don't you think? Out the
door, up the stairs, and East it is. Another cave, hoye. Through this one, head
up the stairs, and bomb the weak wall for a little healing spirit. Here is the
forth Base, Golem Base, but first, go West for a little shopping.

    In Bomberman's World, there are creatures called Karabons. They will help
you during your quest. You can also battle them with fellow trainers and in
Karabon Tournaments. You can equip a Karabon anytime to use it's unique power.

    When selected, you can power-up Karabons with panels unvealed from bombed
stuff. Sword means +1 attack, Shield means +1 defense, Star means +1 Special.
The more panels you collect, the stronger your Karabon will be. The level will
grow with the increasement of each status.

-------------------------------[Karabon Elements]------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In Karabon Battles, there is the advantage and the disavantage of Element.
Some Special Attacks do nothing against certain types of Karabon, while others
work great. The following chart tells you all. Read: Vertical (Special Attack)
does [...] damage to Horizontal (Defenders).

/----------\
|  |F|W|R|E|
|==========|    Legend:
|F||n|n|g|x|    F - Fire    W - Water    R - Rock    E - Electric
|W||g|n|x|n|    n - Normal  g - Great    x - No Damage
|R||n|x|n|g|
|E||n|g|x|n|
\----------/

    Some Karabons are multi-elemental. In that case, see it's attack's
element above, in Karabon's section. If it's the defender, then remember this:
if one element is weak to the attack, it will suffer.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------[Karabon Battles]-------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In Karabon Battles, you are allowed to choose 3 tactics for the fight.
There is Punch, which is a simple tackle; there is Defend, which generates a
shield in front of your Karabon and is used when an attack from your foe is
occured; and there is Special, which features a special move depending on the
element of your Karabon. If both Karabon choose Attack or Defend at the same
time, it will occur at the same time. The level of the Karabon determines the
speed of the special attack, meaning if you are at a higher level than your
opponent, you will use Special first.

/==============\
|  NAME  |1|2|3|    Legend:
|--------|-|-|-|    P - Punch
|PnchBlck|P|B|S|    B - Block
|KwikPnch|P|S|B|    S - Special
|Dfns 1st|B|P|S|
|Nice End|B|S|P|
|ShowTime|S|P|B|
|Technque|S|B|P|
\==============/

    My favorite tactic is Technque/Showtime/Nice End. Of course, if I choose
the wrong Karabon, then this is also the crappiest. The choice is up to you.

    In regular battles with other trainers, you get to choose one Karabon. But
in the Colosseum, you must battle with 5 Karabons to win a prize. It's one
after another, and each time, you cannot select the Karabon(s) you've just
used.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------[Colosseum]----------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There are four colosseums around the world. You can compete in them with
your own Karabons to win cash and a special prize. If you have more than 5
Karabons, you can compete in a league, where your bet wins go up, the more you
win! (NOTE: if there is a draw, you lose)

- you are in constant battle the second you leave a town or a hide-away. Be on
  full alert and be as fast as possible, equip Pommy Animal to be even faster!
- bombing is a technique that any Bomberman HAVE to master if he really wants
  to win, and here is my little instruction:
    bomb everything
    don't over-bomb or you will be trapped by them
    - use hit and run tactics
    - use multi bomb tactics (make many bombs blow at the same time by
      aligning them)
    - if you can pitch or kick, great; if you can RC, better; if you can
      detonate, EXCELLENT!!!
    - watch out for the after-blasts. They last around 1 second, but they can
      and will injure you.
- I say panels are greater than enemies. If you have a choice, go for the
  panel first instead of getting the enemy and destroying the panel.
- NEVER DESTROY HEALTH UNLESS YOU ARE 100% HEALTHY
- if you know you are going to be injured, try to damage an enemy or destroy
  some blocks on your way
- try to sneak up on enemies, or if you want, sneak by
- equip a Karabon that's useful. Here's my list of useful Karabons: Ceedrun,
  Thunder Tiger, Pommy Animal, Electric Kong, Fire Kong

|            |be able to place multiple bombs at once. You have to remember   |
|            |how much bombs you can set at once.                             |
|------------|----------------------------------------------------------------|

|------------|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|Line Bomb   |Collect Bomb-Ups, then collect Line Bomb so you can place       |
|            |multiple bombs in a straight line. Press (A) twice to do it.    |
|------------|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|Bomb Kick   |With this, you can kick bombs. Set one, go back, and contact it.|
|------------|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|Roller Skate|The more of these you collect, the faster you'll go.            |
|------------|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|Poison Skull|Don't touch this. The consequences may be: slow, ghost and bomb |
|            |drop. If you get it, try to collect another Power-Up or touch an|
|            |opponent to get rid of it.                                      |
