Amiga Action
The success of its predecessors means that Parasol Stars will sell by the lorry load. It would have been easy for Ocean to take the easy option and simply churn out a game to the old formula. Thankfully they haven't followed this road. The gameplay has been improved considerably and a lot of effort has been put into the development of the new product. The game's style is very much like a console product with bouncy tunes, plenty of colour and cute graphics all in a cartoonesque environment. The result is an addictive game that will prove to be as popular as its parents.
Siinä missä Rainbow Islands oli kuitenkin pelillisesti ja ideallisesti askel eteenpäin, on Parasol Stars paluu takaisin vanhaan, tuttuun ja turvalliseen. Kotelon päällä lukee Rainbow Islands II, kun itse asiassa tulisi lukea Bubble Bobble II. Tämä on oikeastaan pelin ainoa merkittävä heikkous. Pelin mainio pelattavuus varsinkin kaksinpelinä nostaa kuitenkin Parasol Starsin klassikoitten joukkoon.
Amiga Power
That it perhaps doesn't entirely live up to our expectations is our own fault rather than Ocean's or the programmers', but don't get the wrong idea - this is a gorgeous arcade game, right up at the top of the league alongside Rodland and all the rest, but it's just not quite the universe-beater you were hoping for. You'd be a fool not to buy it, though.
Amiga Joker
Man braucht also kein Prophet sein, um vorherzusehen, daß Bub & Bob mit diesem Spiel die Herzen ihrer Fans wieder genauso erobern werden, wie ihnen das vorher schon zweimal gelungen ist. Die Programmierer haben jedenfalls das ihre dazu getan, apropos Programmierer: Diesmal gab es gar kein Arcade-Original, die Amigaversion wurde unmittelbar von der PC-Engine konvertiert. Das Ergebnis kann sich wirklich sehen und spielen lassen!

Power Play
Nach drei Jahren macht sich Klein-Bubby mit seinem Kumpel Bobby mal wieder auf Abenteuerjagd. Dieses mal begeben sich die beiden auf eine Rettungsaktion über sieben Planeten, die allsamt von unseriösen Monstern heimgesucht werden.
Inte så originellt men väldigt gulligt litet plattformsspel. Nästan lite för gulligt kanske.
