Advantages: Very addictive platform game
What a great idea for a new section DooYoo, it has really brought back memories for me, so much so that I'm on the look out for an Amiga emulator.
Now the game.
Bubble Bobble is a platform type game, there are 100 single screen levels for you to get through, and you can either play alone or with a friend. You take on the role of Bub and Bob, with are two really cute little dragons, but unlike normal dragons Bub and Bob can't breathe fire. Instead they shoot bubbles. The bubbles themselves aren’t very harmful, but once a baddie is caught in a bubble either Bub or Bob can jump on the bubble causing it to blow up, thus the baddie will turn into fruit that adds to your points score.
When all the baddies on the level have gone, you them proceed onto the next level.
This sounds very simple and it is. That's what makes this game so appealable. But don't get the impression it's that simple, there are several ways the makers have found to complicate the game. First there is a time limit on each level, there are loads of baddies to deal with, some will fly, some will shoot things and some will drop bombs whilst others just wander around.
To help you there are numerous bonus's to pick up such as magic shoes that make you run like the wind, magic potions that will make you fire bubbles twice as fast, best of all though are the magic umbrellas which will advance you from 2 to 7 levels on.
If you pick up enough fruit you will be rewarded with an extra life.
The graphics on this game are simple, but well done. All the characters are cute. Everything is so colourful and clear and Bub and Bobs movement is fluid.
The music is fantastic although it may annoy some people.
Bubble Bobble is the best game I have ever played on the Amiga; it's just so perfect.
Have a look around the Internet I'm sure you can download a free version, you won't be disappointed.
