from page 5, "It's a Blast!"
The Normal Mode (1-Player) action begins as Bomberman's evil twin pulls a bank heist! He sets up our hero in a frame for the dastardly deed. As the story unfolds, the true Bomberman is whisked off to jail! Is he done for?
Not likely! Proving that no cell can hold him, Bomberman sets off to blast out of the vermin filled jail and put the real culprit behind bars. Multiple levels of intense play await you in this riveting action/maze style adventure!
White Bomberman walks down the street, and witnesses Black Bomberman entering and promptly exiting a bank.
Black Bomberman dumps a sack of stolen money at White's feet and legs it. Just as White eventually grasps that he's being framed, a police car drives by and wastes no time in immediately arresting White Bomberman, hauling him off to jail.
The first world takes place in the prison, where Bomberman has to blast his way out.
He then escapes to a forest.
He then supposedly advances upon a mountain, but the in-game stages are coated with trees, so it's probably another forest. Or just a forest-y mountain.
The fourth world takes our hero to an inhospitable marsh.
The marsh then leads him to a cave.
For the final world, Bomberman digs himself into a second jail, this one more dilapidated than the last.
Black Bomberman stands in the middle of the road for no apparent reason, minding his own business. White Bomberman enters from the left, startling Black.
White gives chase, but eventually chooses to run in the opposite direction.
Black Bomberman is suitably baffled and stops. White Bomberman loops around on the other side of the screen and startles him. Knowing he can't run forever, Black Bomberman admits defeat and grovels for forgiveness. One can only assume he had a really good apology.

A bank robbery. A bomber in black. A hard working young miner. The chase begins.
After being arrested for a crime he didn't commit, White Bomberman blasts his way out of jail and treks across fields, rivers and mountains, all just to get back at a Black Bomberman. As far as revenge tales go, it's a pretty crummy one.
If we're to assume this follows the PC Engine game, then obviously Black Bomberman hadn't learnt his lesson after having his castle destroyed. For no reason other than to be a right arsehole, he frames White Bomberman for a bank robbery - in broad daylight! He doesn't even make a getaway, he just hangs around the scene of the crime until White comes back and chases him a bit. Not exactly a shining moment for either of them.
Responsible for throwing White Bomberman in the clink. Had this fella the sense to ask a few questions first before hauling him to the slammer, we could've avoided this entire ordeal. Such is life.
