[Found]-> Master Blaster (was:Shareware Bomberman clone)

There was a shareware Bomberman clone on the Amiga. What I remember of it:

It would have been around 93-95 that version 2 came out, version 1 may have been in that time as well, or earlier.
You could have up to 5 players (using 4-player joystick adaptor & keyboard), except v2 only let 3 play unless you registered. The characters all looked different (ninja, punk, etc) - v1 had a set character for each player, v2 let you choose who looked like what.

Was better (IMHO) than most of these games, because you would come back after you died (number of lives per screen) - saves the "I got blown up in the first 2 seconds, now I'll just twiddle my thumbs while my friends have fun" problem...
(off topic, are there any PC versions that do this?)

After each level/screen, it would show the ranking with trophy cups next to the players.

They've done it on PC, it seems Amiga and PC version are no more available on their website http://www.diamond-pro.com/about/index.shtml but perhaps Google can find it ?

Found the Amiga version on BTTR!

Getting more than 2 players on the CD32 will be difficult though
(Maybe a keyboard adapter for an extra 1 or 2? )

Either that or WinUAE... (Can it support 4 joysticks? Do you need an Amiga-style parallel port adapter, or can you use 4 USB controllers?)

EDIT: Found PC version at T-Online. Supports up to 9!!! players over the network!

I reeeally want to have a gander at that but can't for the life of me figure out how to grab it... Seems I need a username/password but I only speak English which makes the sign up process extremely difficult =]

Does anyone know of any other links, or have a copy they can host?

I just started looking for the pc version called "Master Blaster 2001". Looks like it is shareware! Cannot find a download for the life of me.

The above mentioned download link at T-Online looks like it only works for people with a T-Online account.

Maybe there's somebody here who has the file, or who is using T-online and could download it and then up it to the zone? That would be great!
