DescriptionThis sequel to Rainbow Islands sees a return to the gameplay of Bubble Bobble, but with Bub and Bob in their now-human forms.
The boys must clear a series of screens of bad guys - who take slightly more esoteric forms than the angry caterpillars from Rainbow Islands - and again pick up a whole bunch of power-ups.
But this time they're armed with umbrellas! Oh, okay then, parasols...

Free Amiga demoOcean published a four-level demo for the Amiga version of this game, which is now freeware. It is still available for download here.
