484 - Bubble Bobble series

Post by JaySevenZero »

Here's where you can contribute your thoughts and opinions for Bubble Bobble (series) for potential inclusion in the forthcoming podcast.

NB: The games we'll be looking at in this series show are the original Bubble Bobble itself, plus the myriad spin-offs and direct sequels such as Bubble Symphony and Bubble Memories.

Rainbow Islands, Parasol Stars and their spin-offs and sequels will not be covered in this particular podcast.


A friendly reminder that where the feedback for the podcast is concerned, we love it - but keeping it brief is appreciated. We do want to include a breadth of opinions where appropriate, but no-one wants a discussion podcast that’s mostly reading out essays. Better to save yourself time and cut to the chase if you can.

Bubble Bobble was one of the first games I really fell in love with on my Commodore64. The simple, cheerful gameplay was lots of fun and kept child me coming back over and over, even when the frustration was mounting. I never finished it. Never even got close. But I loved it all the same.

I can still whistle that earworm of a tune on command.

For some reason, I never got into Rainbow Islands or any of the other sequels. Rainbow Islands was just too different and didn't feel "good" to play to me, and I didn't try most of the others.

3 word review of the original: "Effervescent dragon combat"

Bubble Bobble is sacred ground for me. Playing with my brothers on the Spectrum and then the ST are some of my most treasured gaming memories. I can’t think of any version I’ve played since, including the original, that isn’t still a joy to play. I’ve never spent much time with any spin-offs though. No need!
