Bomberman refers to the 1983 or 1985 debut games in Hudson Soft's Bomberman series. It was originally written as a 1980 tech demo to test their BASIC compiler.[2]

Though it is often known for the 1985 Famicom Disk System and 1989 Nintendo Entertainment System versions, Bomber Man was originally released in 1983 for multiple NEC, Sharp, Sinclair ZX81/Spectrum, Fujitsu FM-7, and MSX platforms (home computers) in Japan. In Europe, it was graphically modified and localised to some of those platforms as Eric and the Floaters[3][4]. In Japan, another game was released before the Famicom Disk System release for the MSX in 1984, known as 3-D Bomberman.

The series features Bomberman, who is a robot that must destroy walls with bombs to find doors, leading to further rooms. Bomberman must avoid enemies, and can obtain items to help him.

In 2004, Nintendo published a Classic NES Series port of the Nintendo Entertainment System game for Game Boy Advance.
