Bubble Bobble ranks as one of the best Spectrum coin-op conversions of all time, boasting pleasant graphics and extremely addictive gameplay. If you have so much as an ounce of sense in your body you'll rush out and buy this now!

[Retest] Still plays well, but looks a bit old now.
Bubble Bobble is so much fun! The graphics are cute, and though it's quite easy to play it's remarkably addictive. Having seen the other versions, I was convinced that the Spectrum game was going to be a letdown - but far from it. Bubble Bobble is excellent, pretty, enjoyable, addictive, simple, exemplary and a strongly-recommended buy.

Firebird could hardly fail - Bubble Bobble is probably one of the easiest coin-ops to convert to the Spectrum with its definite platform shapes and restricted use of colour, and is ideally suited to the machine's capabilities.

Beim Spectrum stimmt die Geschwindigkeit, der Rest scheint mir allerdings stark zusammengeschustert zu sein. Die Grafik ist lieblos, die Animation zuweilen recht "sprunghaft" und der Sound nur beim 128k Specci erträglich.
