Summary

One of my favorite games and a truly excellent aracde conversion.

The Good

If you liked Bubble Bobble you should probably check out it's remake, as it features even better graphics and sound.

This is one great game! I really love this one. I used to play it for hours and hours on my trust ole XT, and I remember actually getting to level 97 once (you try it). The graphics are great (considering), the music is great (considering), the controls are just perfect and the game is sheer bliss.

The Bad

It's programmed for 8088s and getting it to run on new machines can be a bitch. Also, it's really really hard (the XT version is, anyway).

The Bottom Line

A really cool arcade game you should probably play.
