Galactic crisis! Get them, Bomber Cop!

The Magellan solar system contains six planets. One day, there's a daring robbery -- Evil Bomberman and six of his cronies steal the seven vital chips from the Pan-Galactic mother super computer!
They've shut down the computer! In an emergency like this there's only one person for the job -- the Number One Super Detective in the Pan-Galactic Federal Bureau, Bomber Cop! Bomber Cop gets his orders and he's on his way -- it's do or die time!

intro

The Pan-Galactic mother computer is active and working away, when its lights suddenly turn off one by one. After causing damage to it, Black Bomberman is seen fleeing the scene with stolen goods.

Bomberman gives chase, and it's revealed that Black Bomberman stole the mother computer's program chips! However, he tosses them into the path of mysterious blue meteors, which carry the chips away...

To each of the six planets in the Magellan galaxy. Black tries to ward Bomberman off with a few thrown bombs, but Bomberman dodges them all...

... except for the last one, which strands him on Ajian Star. Black escapes, his ship disappearing into the centre of the galaxy.
