The first game was a 2D side-scrolling perspective for the format's straightforward nature, while the second was a full-3D perspective in which movement is performed on predetermined linear paths.

Tokuro Fujiwara produced both games as well as the director of the first game. For the second game, the direction role went to Kuniaki Kakuwa.

Both games faced a lackluster performance due to the very low availability of the games in stores, and as a result, they never attained a Greatest Hits/Platinum status.

Whoopee Camp called it quits in 2000 following the second game’s release, with much of its former staff later transferring to Access Games. Today, both Tomba games are very rare and sold at high prices.
