Description

This 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...

Trivia

C64 version

A C64 version was put into development by Ocean and even advertised. Unfortunately, Colin Porch's (programmer) hard drive was thrown out of a window by his wife, and development could not be resumed to meet the deadline.

Free Amiga demo

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