Bomberman 64 is a Nintendo 64 video game developed by Hudson Soft and published by Nintendo. In Japan, the game is known as Explosive Bomberman. The game includes the classic mechanics that made the series popular, though a single player mode furthers the experience by adding platforming and action elements as well. The game was re-released on the Virtual Console on March 9, 2017.


The game was the first of many Bomberman video games released on the Nintendo 64 in English speaking countries. The game makes use of the joystick, allowing the protagonist to move in many more directions than before. Rather than the bombs' explosions going in four different directions, they create a circular blast. The stages are much more diverse this time around, and the addition of eight different directions in which the player can travel in adds plenty to the already beloved Bomberman experience.


The game was welcomed to mixed reactions. Some critics, such as GamePro, appreciated the newest addition to the series and rewarded it with a 4.5/5. Nintendo Power, Electronic Gaming Monthly and IGN all gave the game a score in the sevens, while GameSpot surprisingly gave it a disappointing 4.6/10.
