Version Final (02/05/01)
   Oh my gosh. I've put more information in here than
   what anyone is going to need. Well, everything is
   finished here. The walkthrough just needs to be typed
   up and then I'll be completely done!

Version 2.0 (08/16/00)
   An update. Fixed a few spelling & grammar errors. I also
   added information about monsters. I have also added
   another map and all the information you see above this.
   It's been so long that some of this isn't STILL finished,
   but I'm going to work on a walkthrough sometime soon,
   and finish up on the monsters.

Version 1.0 (01/27/00)
   This basically includes stuff like the story, info about
   the weapons & items, & a FAQ. A walkthrough is planned
   for the future, as well as more information about the
   monster.

Note: If you see anything I didn't add, or if you have a 
question, or if you think something could be done better

STORY
-----

   Once upon a time, in a galaxy far away, Bomberman was
piloting the Bomber Shuttle, carrying monsters he'd fought
and captured to Plant Bomber. Suddenly, the shuttle began
to shake violently as a powerful force began to rip the 
Bomber Shuttle's engines from its hull! Before Bomberman
could react, the engines had been stolen! The Bomber
Shuttle was forced to make an emergency crash-landing on a
nearby planet, and on top of that, all the monsters on
board took this opportunity to escape. It was then that
Bomberman discovered this was all the work of the
mysterious Four Commanders! Will Bomberman be able to
recapture all the escaped monsters? Can he defeat the Four
Commanders? Will he be able to get back to Planet Bomber?
Bomberman needs your help! Are you up to the challenge?

Basically there is one Commander in each zone. Objective:
beat the Four Commanders, get your shuttle engines back,
and rocket back to Planet Bomber.

CONTROLS
--------

 *Up, Down, Left, Right: Moves Bomberman in the appropriate
                         direction; select icon on menu
                         screens.
 *A Button             : Uses 'A Button' weapon; Talk; 
                         selects menu option.

                         Show number of monster destroyed.

Note: You can assign any Weapon to either the A or B
      Buttons. The Equipment is used automatically when
      selected, and the Items you use once you select it.

Note: If you press Select on the monster screen, it will show
      how many of each monster you've beat. It's unknown if
      this does something, like if you get something cool if
      you beat so many monsters, at this time.

************************************************************

MULTIPLAYER
-----------

Note: You'll need two Gameboys, two copies of Bomberman
      Quest, and a Link Cable to play the Battle game.

When you go into the Battle game, you take most of what you
have from the one player game. When you first select
Battle, the person who selected it will choose everything.

The three options are:

    Games, which means how many rounds you go.
    Time, which sets the time limit for each round.
    Item Cng, which asks if you want to switch items between
     each round.

Once these are selected, you pick which field you want to
play on. The choices are:

    Normal
    Field
    Forest
    Beach
    Desert
    Obstacle
    Random

Once selected, go to it!

ITEMS

Note: This section describes the item & lets you know where
      it is found (and how to find it). It will  also list
      where they can be used to either forward your
      progress or acquire another item. N/A means it doesn't
      have to be used.

caves or underwater caves or clouds and stuff. The place

THE COMMANDERS
--------------

Note: When you beat a Commander, you will always get an
Explosive Core, a piece of the shuttle, and one hit point.

3D: Water Commander (6HP)
    -She will throw two bombs, which will bounce randomly
     around the room.
    -If you lay down any bombs, she will spin and throw
     balls that will destroy your bombs.
    -Let her own bombs kill herself. She's usually stupid
     enough to stand in their blast zone.
    -When she starts losing energy she will dig up the floor
     for mini-hearts.

4F: Electro Commander (8HP)
    -Avoid his electric charges. They will follow you around
     for a while, and are EXTREMELY hard to avoid. Your best
     best is to use the Dash Shoes or Sneakers and the Jump
     Shoes to avoid them.
    -The best way to defeat him is to trap him in a corner.
     If you can get him into a corner, put down two bombs
     next to him, like so:

     OOOOOO
     OE
     OBB 
     O

     :where E = Electro Commander, B = Bombs, and O = Walls. As
     the bombs blow up, he'll stay there for a second. Quickly
     place two more bombs and repeat.

6F: Hurri Commander (10HP)
    -Tornadoes will fly around him. The tornadoes won't hurt you,
     but will push your bombs aside.
    -Regular '+' bombs won't work on him, you must use '0' radius
     bombs.
    -Watch for the bombs that he throws because as soon as they
     get near you they'll explode quickly.
    -When a bomb gets near him, he will teleport to a different
     part of the room.
    -Recommend using the Power Gloves to throw a bomb at him. This
     will take precise timing. If you throw the bomb too early after
     he teleports, it won't affect him (he's invincible for a moment
     after teleporting). If you throw the bomb too late, he'll
     teleport again. It takes practice.
  
5C: Pyro Commander (10HP)
    -His hands will fly around and throw fireballs or razors at
     you. Touching his hands won't hurt you though.
    -When his hands come back into his body, he'll drop several
     powered up bombs.

4D: Chaos Bomber
    1st Form (10HP)
    -Will shoot small beams which disappear off the sides of the
     screen. They'll come back and cover the whole screen. You
     must jump or fly over them.
    -Bombs will materialize a moment before they explode.
    -'O' radius bombs are needed to damage him.
    2nd Form (10HP)
    -Shoots small stars that will head in your direction and then
     fly off.
    -Shoots lighting in a 4-way spread.
    -Again, 'O' radius bombs are needed.

************************************************************

BOMB CREATION
-------------

Note: There are extras of the bomb components, such as Ice Shard,
Skull, etc. Unless noted, the extra does nothing but make the
same bomb, which does nothing for you.

Note: For Clock & Boomerang, there are two different bombs that
can be made for each. It's random which one is made, so if you
waste a bomb component, reset the game and try again.

Note: The Fire item: For the + bombs, it will extend the reach
by one square in each direction. For the 0 radius bombs, the blast
will last longer.



Fire           + Any Bomb   = Blast level up.
Explosive Core + Rubber     = Rubber Bomb
Explosive Core + Clock      = Short-Fused Bomb or
                              Long-Fused Bomb
Explosive Core + Ice Shard  = Ice Bomb
Explosive Core + Poison Ivy = Poison Bomb
Explosive Core + Boomerang  = Right Bomb or
                              Left Bomb
Explosive Core + Skull      = Skull Bomb

************************************************************

SECRETS
-------

Extra Hit Points-
  Beat the Electro Commander, then go back to the Water Commander's
  lair. There will be a hidden character where she was. In
  the battle you can't use your menu so choose what you want
  to use carefully & before you go the room. Once you beat the
  hidden character, you'll gain another Hit Point. This applies
  as well to:

  Beat Hurri Commander, then go back to Electro Commander's lair.
  Beat Pryo Commander, then go back to Hurri Commander's lair.

  *Touching these secret bosses in battle won't harm you.

3D: Secret Boss of Water Commander Lair (10HP)
    -Will try and hit you with the Hammer and stun you, though
     that won't do any actual damage.
    -When she starts losing energy she will dig up the floor
     for mini-hearts.

4F: Secret Boss of Electro Commander Lair (10HP)
    -Boss will jump over the bomb blasts.
    -The bombs are powered up and will also poison you (cause
     you to walk slowly for a short time).
    -When throwing a '0' radius bomb, time it so that it hits
     when the boss is landing.

6F: Secret Boss of Hurri Commander Lair (10HP)
    -Will teleport around and the bombs are powered up.

FAQ
---

Q)If I beat an enemy, and then I leave the item behind, can
  I still get it?

A)Yes. Just beat the enemy again.

###############

Q)Do I need to get every item in the game? Will I get a better
  ending? Is there multiple endings?

A)No, most items are not needed to complete the game and you
  won't get a better ending if you collect them all. The only
  different ending happens if you don't beat EVERY monster; if
  you don't, the game will tell you to go back and beat the rest
  of them.

###############

Q)What's the easiest way to beat most monsters?

A)Use the Homing Bomb & Power Gloves or use the Hammer to knock
  them silly, then use the Power Gloves to toss and hurt them.

###############

Q)I beat the Chaos Bomber, and I go back to the game and on
  top of the shuttle there's this little pumpkin person hopping
  up & down. What is it?

A)Unknown. I've tried lots of things, but it won't talk to me
  and I can't kill it. So far, it just seems to indicate you've
  beaten the Chaos Bomber.

###############

Q)There's a cave on 6H. There's a little puzzle in there that 
  says, "If one isn't enough try putting more together". What do
  I do?

A)For this you need a cross-type bomb and the remote control.
  Also the bomb needs to be powered up. Just set two bombs, one 
  on each side so that each bomb will hit two switches. Just hit 
  the detonate button really quickly twice so that both bombs go 
  off at about the same time. Presto!

CREDITS
-------

First thing I have to mention is most of the descriptions
were taken directly from the game. I changed a few of them,
but most remain the same.

Also the story is copied straight from the instruction
booklet.

I'd also like to thank Phil Gevaux at pgevaux@telepub.co.uk for his help.
He contributed a few things, like strategies for beating various monsters,
and answers to some FAQ's too.

Additional thank you's go out to:
 KOMPANITCHENKO Daniel for pointing out an error in my FAQ.
 
This is my FAQ. I made it, so don't use it without my permission.
At least ask, I'll probably say go ahead.
