Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Bomberman (unreleased)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Factor 5/Hudson Soft
RELEASED:         1993
TYPE:             Shooter
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          This is the original Bomberman game for the Genesis.
                  According to Eidolon, Factor 5 was asked to do a Genesis
                  port of Bomberman and came up with this 8-player version
                  that used multiple joystick port adaptors.  Hudson was
                  impressed, but decided in favor of licensing a local
                  Japanese company instead.

IMPRESSIONS:      Eight players on the Genesis is impressive enough, and
                  the trademark frantic gameplay is still there!  This
                  game's a riot!  Compared to this, Mega Bomberman seems
                  rather stilted and awkward.

VARIATIONS:       Also known as the Bomberman Eight Player Hack.  I also
                  note in passing that although it was never commercially
                  released, this "ROM" demo is still covered by Hudson's
                  copyright on the Bomberman franchise.

this wouldve ben a blast if an 8 player option had been added to mega bomberman! well anyway, this demo is in its very early stages, but still fun (Gens is the only emulator I know that runs it flawlessly) well if you have the capabality to burn this onto an eprom, them try it and get some friends over and play, or netplay with gens!
