- Bubble bobble -

he story of bubble bobble is about two boys who have been turned into tiny dragons by an evil creature.Now they must battle their way across 100 levels filled with monsters to gain back their humanity. Played with either one or two players simultaniously each level consists of a single screen with platforms in all shapes and sizes. All enemies have to be destroyed before you can jump to the next and you have to do this within the timelimit as well before more enemies show up and make your life even more difficult.

The only weapon available to you at the start is dragonbreath which in this case doesn't provide you with fire or anything but instead it will blow up a bubble and shoot from your mouth with which you can trap enemies. Trapped enemies float helplessly across the screen at which point you can burt the bubble to destroy them and they will turn into a tasty fooditem which you can pick up for points. Kill all the monsters in the level this way and you can advance one level it's as simple as that. Ofcourse each the game progresses more options will become available as well as the amount and type of baddies. You will occasionally find powerups that will allow you to make bubbles faster or to blow them a longer distance but the best of the lot will give you firebreath allowing you to kill enemies with a single breath. You can also collect letters that form the word EXTEND which will earn you not only an extra life but also transports you to the next level. There are more way to jump a level and they are activated by different things, sometimes a random object that will appear that you can pick up or if you wait long enough a balloon with a portal will pop up. Occasionally these will transport you to outside the level where you have to fight a boss, beat him and you might get a nice bonus.

I played bubble bobble so often together with my cousin that we knew all the powerups that would appear from start to finish. You don't need that kind of commitment to enjoy the game however and even with only one player it's still fun but ask a friend to join you and you'll have great fun with it. This is one of those games that shows you don't have to have incredible graphics to make a fun game. All versions here are practically the same except for the awfull DOS version so choose whichever you prefer and get playing.

Overal rating: 8.5/10

This game was released for many different systems here are some notes:
Apple Released in 1988.
Bub and Bob look a bit squased in this version but otherwise it's ok.
Amiga Released in 1987.
As close to the arcade as you can get without getting the actual arcade game.
Amstrad CPC Released in 1987.
Objects and characters are a bit smaller in this game compared to other but otherwise no differences.
Atari ST Released in 1987.
The same as the amiga version.
C64 Released in 1987.
The version I played the most, it also happens to be the only one with a trainer included so if you wanna cheat a bit then this version is the one for you.
DOS Released in 1987.
I have no idea what they were thinking when they released this. The game moves so slow it's entirely unplayable even though I tried it on multiple systems. Leave it well alone and get it for another system.
NES Released in 1988.
The NES handles the game perfectly.
SMS - Sega
Master system
Released in 1988.
My favorite version but can't really tell why, I often prefer SMS versions over NES ones.
ZX Spectrum Released in 1988.
The lack of color and detail actually hurts the game a bit because the otherwise colorfull levels and baddies are reduced to single color sprites, the essence of the game is still here though.
Others These versions are not available.
Gameboy released in 1991.
Gameboy color released in 1999.
MSX released in 1987.
