Really nice work on a fun gameReviewed By: goldenband on 19 Jul 2017
I wasn’t expecting to get sucked in by a game that, truth be told, is really just a compilation of a couple of Bomberman standbys, plus a version of the well-known Same Game puzzler and a bunch of minigames aggregated into a pseudo-RPG mode.
Turns out, though, that Bomberman 64 of Japan – unofficially called the “Arcade Edition” in some quarters, for some reason – is great, low-key fun for when you just want to chill out with some straightforward gameplay. Sure, it basically looks like a SNES release and even has occasional slowdown, but I have to imagine it would’ve found some fans here had it been released in North America.
And Zoinkity’s localization makes it feel like it *was* released here. Playing through it on my flash cart, it was easy to forget that this isn’t an official localization. The professionalism of the hacking work is paired with a translation that feels spot-on for the material – its tone is appropriately whimsical but not self-indulgent. Nothing breaks immersion, screams “fan translation”, or otherwise draws attention to itself; it’s simply a well-polished translation of a fun game, just as it should be. Great stuff!
