  • Summary: Bubble Bobble's release in 1986 introduced the two bubble dragons, Bub and Bob. It also introduced brand new play mechanics, with players defeating enemies by trapping them in bubbles and then popping them. Although the puzzle action game can be beaten by clearing all 100 rounds, it also contains secret elements, such as not being able to get the "true ending" in single-player mode; hidden commands that lead to secret rounds; and a ton of different items. These elements are some of the game's most memorable and important features. Expand

    An arcade classic with a lot of charm and challenging fun. The Wii Virtual Console's ability to save at any time is a lifesaver! For the uninitiated, Bubble Bobble is a simple puzzler involving dinosaurs who capture enemies in bubbles. Your objective is to defeat all the enemies on a single screen in the time allotted, and this is much harder than it sounds! The soundtrack is just one endless loop which is catchy at first but may have you reaching for the mute button after a few levels. This NES port is pretty solid, but fans may prefer the graphically-superior Bubble Bobble Plus! on the WiiWare service. Collapse

    I'm not sure if this game was originally on an arcade machine, but if it is it was ported nicely. This game has all the charm and fun like an arcade game and the music is so catchy. Expand
