Find the Bomb Crystals and adventure through 10 areas!
This single-player mode lets you shed light on the mystery of the Bomb Crystal's peculiar mutations by adventuring through 10 areas. Touch the items and get stronger and stronger!
The Bomb Crystal unexpectedly glows and shatters into ten mysterious lights, which settle on various parts of the land.
The lights appear to corrupt the land with darkness and monsters. Bomberman sets out, and defeating the boss appears to restore the land to its former state, sending the light flying back to whence it came. His first destinations are Bomber Town and the nearby ruins, followed by boarding a passing pirate ship.
The pirate ship disappears into light and flies away, allowing Bomberman to proceed to the desert where he washes away the polluted water by defeating the boss. His journey leads him through a graveyard and a forest.
Bomberman scales the icy cliff towards the newly-formed volcano, leading him to a castle and finally the site of the Bomb Crystal.
The guardian of the site opposes Bomberman, but is felled. The lights are reunited to reform the Bomb Crystal, and everything's swell.

An early showcase of upcoming Nintendo DS games, though the third-party pages are rather spartan. This shows a preliminary title screen of 3D Bombermen standing around.
Surprise, it's more ad copy!
When it comes to explosive multiplayer action, you can't do better than Bomberman. In Bomberman DS, up to eight players can go head-to-head wirelessly by sharing just one Game Card, battling each other across both DS screens with all the classic Bomberman gameplay and power-ups. Some items, like the remote bomb, can also be activated by shouting into the DS microphone! Plus, fallen players can get revenge by flicking the Touch Screen to launch bombs at their opponents.
Bomberman DS also features a full single-player game, in which the DS' second screen is used to store power-ups which can be accessed at a moment's notice with a simple tap of the finger.
Fast, frenetic and full of friendship-ruining fun, Bomberman DS is da bomb!
From a long-gone game entry page on Nintendo's UK website; I no longer know the URL and the whole site's blocked on the Internet Archive, so this is all that's left!
BOMBERMAN DS: Though it's dull for one person, Bomberman DS is all about fantastic eight-way multiplayer gaming. What's more, you only need one cart to support you and your seven friends. 88%.
