''Bomberman Jetters'' is the video game adaptation of the Anime/BombermanJetters anime, [[RecursiveAdaptation which is in itself an adaptation]] [[VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} of the video game franchise]]. In the game, the Hige Hige Bandits send the Dark Star, a planet-sized rocket, hurtling towards Planet Bomber. White Bomber is sent by [[SpacePolice the Jetters]] to the Dark Star to deactivate the rocket's engines and foil the Hige Hige Bandits' plot. White Bomber is joined by occasional rival MAX and the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''-like [[{{mon}} Charaboms]].

''Bomberman Jetters'' is the video game adaptation of the Anime/BombermanJetters anime, [[RecursiveAdaptation which is in itself an adaptation]] [[VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} of the video game franchise]]. In the game, the Hige Hige Bandits send the Dark Star, a planet-sized rocket, hurtling towards Planet Bomber. White Bomber is sent by [[SpacePolice the Jetters]] to the Dark Star to deactivate the rocket's engines and foil the Hige Hige Bandits' plot. White Bomber is joined by occasional rival MAX and the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''-like [[{{mon}} Charaboms]].

This game is literally ''all'' of ''Bomberman Jetters'' [[NoExportForYou that Western audiences got to see]], which no-doubt confused many a Bomberman fan (who's Shaut/Birdie/Bongo/Gungu…?). Anyone who was familiar with the anime before the game would have been confused as well: The localized game follows its own plot, makes no reference to the series, and changes MAX's role back from villain to hero, [[{{Macekre}} to say nothing about the dialogue and voice acting]].

Gameplay-wise, ''Bomberman Jetters'' plays like a watered-down ''VideoGame/BombermanGeneration''. The controls are the same, the difficulty is [[ThatOneBoss mostly scaled back]], you hold less power-ups (one less each for bombs and speed), you find most Charaboms just standing around and only use them for one specific function, there are no Charabom battles and almost no minigames, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and there's noticeably less graphical power in the game's engine]]. However, if you enjoyed ''Generation's'' gameplay but not so much its difficulty, you'll probably get some fun out of ''Jetters''. Same if you found some humor in ''Generation's'' silly voice acting: ''Jetters'' [[SoBadItsGood has that in spades]] (assuming you can [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper put up with your teammates]]).

----
!!This game provides examples of:
* AdaptationalHeroism: An odd example. MAX was a villain in the anime, but he was always a good guy in the non-Jetters continuity.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: When an engine is deactivated, the Dark Star doesn't shift course away from Planet Bomber. Also when all four engines are off, it doesn't continue moving towards Planet Bomber due to being in space, and thus having no resistance but plenty of momentum.
* AwesomeButImpractical: MAX's Hyper Plasma Bomb can hurt everything in your camera's sight, but it takes a long time to charge up, and it only has the attack power of a single bomb. If the game didn't try to shoehorn MAX in with the barriers that only the Hyper Plasma Bomb could destroy, its only practical use would be for clearing out groups of Hige Hige Bandits.

Gameplay-wise, ''Bomberman Jetters'' plays like a watered-down ''VideoGame/BombermanGeneration''. The controls are the same, the difficulty is [[ThatOneBoss mostly scaled back]], you hold less power-ups (one less each for bombs and speed), you find most Charaboms just standing around and only use them for one specific function, there are no Charabom battles and almost no minigames, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and there's noticeably less graphical power in the game's engine]]. However, if you enjoyed ''Generation's'' gameplay but not so much its difficulty, you'll probably get some fun out of ''Jetters''. Same if you found some humor in ''Generation's'' silly voice acting: ''Jetters'' [[SoBadItsGood has that in spades]] (assuming you can [[StopHelpingMe put up with your teammates]]).
