Bomberman Candy Balls I is a competitive puzzle game. The playfield consists of two 7x14 grids, one for the player and another for the opponent. Players control a clown located at the bottom of the screen while balloons (interchangeably referred to as Candy-Balls or bubbles) appear from the top of the screen. The clown is capable of grabbing and releasing all similarly-colored balls in the column directly above it. Balls are cleared when the player releases a ball or balls that results in three or more vertically-stacked balls of the same color; both the vertically-stacked balls and all touching balls of the same color are eliminated. All balls above the cleared balls will then fall upward, potentially creating another clear. This is a "chain reaction," generally referred to as simply a "chain." If the player is able to manually clear a set of balls while another set is in the process is being cleared, it will also count as a chain.
Creating a chain of 2 or more sets will result in the other player being "attacked," by way of rows of balls rapidly entering their field from the top.
A player is defeated when a column of balls reaches beyond the bottom boundary of their field. A secondary method of victory is "Quota," where the first player to clear a predetermined number of balls is declared the winner of the round.
