  • Summary: The second Bubble Bobble action game for NDS brings back the core of the original series, and a third playable character Bubu is added to the mix. There are also mini games which require the use of stylus as well as the addition of color-coded enemies.

  1. All the key elements of the game are present on this remake. The graphics look quite detailed and colored new backgrounds have been introduced to make it look alive. A new Continue option, unlocked by mini games completion, will welcome the new players. The game itself remains as addictive as it’s always been and it’s an excellent choice if you like this genre.

  2. Bubble Bobble is a classic example of what was once a decent arcade game that has been updated badly, the classic gameplay and multiplayer are welcome but the tacked on extras and lack of features means there is little else to warrant a purchase.

    It's a very uncreative sequel with restrictive multiplayer. The core mechanics are still fun in short spurts, but this follow-up misses a huge opportunity to revitalize a classic design.
  4. A mediocre entry in the Bub and Bob saga, too irritating to ever be absorbing, and missing the sparkle of the mighty original. Some nice ideas meet the frustration of poor level design. [Apr 2007, p.56]
  5. My final thought on Bubble Bobble Double Shot is that it is not worth the investment. It's not really that fun.
  6. The unfortunate fact is that Bubble Bobble has been done too many times before. Yes, it's playable and challenging, but it's also old and far too simplistic for hte modern gaming era. [Mar 2007, p.77]
  7. A sloppily-handled misfire that ruins the original's reputation.

    This game brings back old memories. Very similar to the old game, we all loved but with some new twists. Wish it was available on another gaming platforms like Wii. It is challenging at different points during each level. Very easy to spend hours on. Expand
