Bomberman Tournament is a fun, easy game that takes the basic Bomberman gameplay and stuffs it into a bag with Zelda's overworld/dungeon game structure, then beats the shit out of that bag with a gnarled stick labelled "shallow Pokemon-esque creature collecting/battles". It's sort of a spiritual successor to Bomberman Quest for the GBC and predecessor to Bomberman Story for the DS. (The "tournament" of the title refers to the game's standard link-cable multiplayer.)

It's also the second game to feature Max (the first being Bomberman Max: Red/Blue for the GBC). Tournament follows Bomberman's search for the mysterious cyborg after he disappeared while investigating meteors on Planet Phantarion. Along the way Bomberman will meet and recruit Pokemon Charaboms, this time spelt Karabons. The game's setting, planet Phantarion draws heavily from Neutopia, an early Zelda-alike developed by Hudson.
