''Saturn Bomberman'' is a 1996 installment in the ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' franchise for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn. Supporting the Sega Saturn Modem, it is the first ''Bomberman'' game with online multiplayer ([[OfferVoidInNebraska except in the PAL version]]), as well as the first ''Bomberman'' game released to the general public to allow as many as ten players to battle. To date, only ''VideoGame/AtomicBomberman'' has followed up on the Battle Game.

The legendary monster Crator was imprisoned in the Crystal Tower with [[CrystalPrison four crystals]], but [[BigBad Mujoe]] unsealed Crator and enslaved it with the [[MindControlDevice monster controller]]. Frantically, [[TheProfessor Dr. Ein]] sends a message requesting [[TheProtagonist White Bomberman]] and [[SupportingProtagonist Black Bomberman]] to stop Mujoe and his gang from [[TakeOverTheWorld Taking Over the World]].

''Saturn Bomberman'' follows the tried and true grid formula. In Normal Game, stages are laid out with obstacles, and destroying all of the Core Mechas (mechanisms with glowing red orbs) opens the exit. This continues for five worlds, each ending with a boss battle. In Master Game, all the enemies of the floor must be destroyed within the [[TimedMission time limit]], with a [[TimeLimitBoss timed boss]] every four floors for twenty total floors. The game also marks the first appearance of Dr. Ein and the HIGE HIGE Bandits.

''Saturn Bomberman'' is a 1996 installment in the VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} franchise for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn. It was the first ''Bomberman'' game with support for online multiplayer (which required a modem), as well as the first ''Bomberman'' game released to the general public to allow as many as 10 players to battle.

While on a routine patrol, Bomberman discovers the Crystal Tower, in which is supposed to be the evil monster Crator. However Crator, and the crystals used to keep Crator imprisoned, have gone missing. Bomberman then receives a radio message from Dr. Ein that the evil [[BigBad Mr. Meanie]][[note]]"Mujoe" in Japan; they would stick with Mujoe in later American releases[[/note]] has unleashed Crator, and it is now up to him to find the crystals and crush Mr. Meanie.

''Saturn Bomberman'' follows the classic Bomberman formula: levels are laid out in a grid with enemies and destructible blocks. Destroying all of the glowing red orbs on the top (which are known as Zarfs) opens the exit, allowing the player to progress to the next stage. It was one of the first Bomberman games to incorporate online play, [[OfferVoidInNebraska except in Europe]]. The game was also the first appearance of recurring characters Dr. Ein, Mujoe, and Dr. Mechadoc.
