    Default Bomberman fans, tell me something

    I asked this elsewhere but didn't get much of an answer so I'm wondering if I'll fare better here.

    Okay, so I got a multicart with all five Super Bomberman games but... umm... just at first glance, they seem more or less the same.

    Can someone more familiar tell me how they differ? Especially in multiplayer since that's the part I'm unlikely to ever experience.

    For that matter I don't really see how the PC-Engine Bombermans distinguish themselves. I hear Saturn Bomberman is the best, but why is that?

    I like Bomberman, but I am not a big enough fan to be able to tell you why Saturn Bomberman is the best. I do enjoy the series, but I am nearly where you are at. I have a copy of saturn bomberman, so maybe I'll pop it in for at some point and see what I can come up with.

    I used to know the answer to this... I've forgotten the differences and how the games relate between Mega Drive, SFC, and PCE.
    iirc the Mega Drive version introduced riding on the kangaroos, I think PCE Bomberman '94 is essentially the same game as the MD one. I can't remember which SFC game added the kangaroos.

    Edit: some quick searching tell us:

    and why Saturn Bomberman is the best
