almo - 2009-01-27 I love the vaguely threatening music.
Play it with a friend... OR ELSE.
gambol - 2009-01-27 It was better with two players anyway.
Dib - 2009-01-27 1) When the last boss is sealed in a bubble but just before popping it, pause the game and press select with the 2nd controller to bring them in (requires at least an extra life) then you can pop it.
2) You couldn't simply beat the last boss. You had to take the secret door in level 99 to some extra levels then beat all those. Incidentally you couldn't use only the level skip code(DDFFI, yes I still remember it) to go there, you had to actually enter the door.
Cube - 2009-01-27 The NES version is weird compared to the C64 version.
glendower - 2009-01-27 Five stars for the most sadistic game ever made.
Nikon - 2011-05-20 C'mon, Ghosts N' Goblins (Makaimura) is far more ball-busting than Bubble Bobble.
Xenocide - 2009-01-27 Bubble Bobble punished you for your inability to make friends. The opposite of today's games.
Jack Dalton - 2009-01-27 Bubble Bobble was made back when you could pay game designers in LSD and cocaine.
It's a shame that Bubble Bobble was the high-point of the series... none of the sequels had the magic of the original. And the remakes were horrible.
Bub and Bob are now featured in about 400 derivative Bust-A-Move games.
Nikon - 2009-01-27 I loved the first one. None of the sequels came close to matching the fun I had playing it.
poorwill - 2009-09-09 Eat shit, asshole. Rainbow Islands is one of the best games ever made and Bubble Symphony and Bubble Memories are more-than-worthy successors to the Bubble Bobble throne.
