This is the first of the game's title screens.
There's a short animates sequence which simulates walking into a games arcade. There are three machines here and three in the back room
The scruffy bit of paper on the floor is a list of shortcut keys. The 'Backroom' sign takes the player to the other machines. The black sun brings up the games credits and the 'Exit' sign - exits
These are the machines in the back room
This is the start of Bubbles. All games start with an Options bar that allows the player to customise keys and so on
