My favorite classic Bomberman is tough to choose.

When I was a kid The Second Attack was my all time favorite game, I fucking loved it. The co-op story, the amazing multiplayer, the huge as fuck levels, and especially that cuhrazy storyline.

I tried going back to it recently though and playing it again, it's a pretty rough game. Now the long cutscenes annoy me rather than enthrall me, I think the storyline (which is basically power rangers vs the bible) is just goofy rather than the coolest thing ever like I thought it was as a kid. A lot of the levels have pretty forced and unnatural backtracking. It makes good use of the new bomb types you get, but plenty of times in levels it's still just
press a switch
that opens the way to another switch on the other side of the level
press that switch
that opens the way to another switch on the other side of the level

And sometimes what the switches do is nonsensical. One I pressed made a cage that had another switch inside of it shatter into a bunch of pieces. What the hell? A lot of the backtracking isn't tied to your abilities like in other exploration games. Some of it is, but nowhere near enough. Makes the game pretty frustrating.

But it was my favorite game as a kid and I'm nostalgic as fuck for it. Also it still has the best multiplayer is the whole franchise.

But overall, the first Bomberman 64 holds up much better and is one I can go back to and play anytime. So I don't know which of those two is my favorite.

Sorry for the long rant but TSA is a pretty unknown game so I don't get a lot of chances to talk about it.

Apparently there's an english patch for the rom floating around somewhere. I haven't tried it out yet myself but you can probably find it on google pretty easily.

I did watch them. Picking up/throwing is tied with the same button you use to lay down bombs, which is really clunky. The punch is rare, less useful, and redundant.

punch is very useful because it's one of the most powerful escape tools in every bomberman game it's in and it's pretty op in this game
power glove is on the bomb button in majority of the games it's in, saturn bomberman and ultra/live are exceptions here

Punch, Drill, Detonator, Push, Bead Bomb, Shield, Bomb Change, Ruse and Remote Control are NOT tied to the A button.

The only items tied to A are the glove variants (Power Glove, Juggle Glove, Super Power Glove) and the Line Bomb, that's it.

I don't know what you're talking about, picking/throwing always worked like that (using the same A button) in the Super Bomberman games, for example.
If you're talking about picking players, you can easily disable that feature before a battle.

>The punch is rare, less useful, and redundant.
Dude! Punch is the real deal, it's faster and more versatile than the Power Glove, only using "Power Glove+Kick" is the basic strat, you can do crazy shit if you know how to use the Punch.

hard to pick just one, but saturn bomberman is up there thanks to immense polish and some of the most intriguing features in the series
