The Amiga version of this arcade classic is still just as addictive, frustrating and playable as the other versions. Bubble Bobble is one of the best arcade conversions we're probably ever likely to see.

[Retest] Still plays well, but looks a bit old now.

[Budget re-release] Quite simply, if you don't already own this buy it now. A perfect ÂŁ7.99 game - its only weakness is that it's so much better in two player mode than one.

CU Amiga (84 out of 100) (84%)

As a one player game it proves to be extremely playable, but opens up more as a two-player game. There's a lot to do and some very nasty screens, and it comes with my wholehearted recommendation.

Power Play (8 out of 10) (80%)

Die Amiga-Adaption des flotten Geschicklichkeits-Spiel ist weitgehend mit der sehr guten Atari ST-Version identisch. Der Sound wurde allerdings noch ein wenig aufgepeppt. Diese Umsetzung ist eines der Topspiele fĂŒr den Amiga. Vor allem zu zweit macht Bubble Bobble einen Heidenspaß: 100 Levels, viele versteckte Extras und die niedliche Grafik sind die StĂ€rken dieses pfiffigen Plattform-Spiels.

Face Ă  un jeu techniquement pas trĂšs exigeant comme Bubble Bobble, on ne peut s’empĂȘcher de penser que l’Amiga aurait pu proposer une version pratiquement identique au pixel prĂšs Ă  celle de l’arcade – mais on n’était qu’en 1987, et la machine de Commodore Ă©tait encore en rodage. Force est de constater, malgrĂ© tout, que la version proposĂ©e ici est dĂ©jĂ  bluffante pour l’époque et que les diffĂ©rences dans les sensations de jeu restent de l’ordre du dĂ©tail.

Amiga Joker (72 out of 100) (72%)

Spielerisch steht Bubble Bobble somit heute noch gut da, wofĂŒr neben dem vorzĂŒglichen Gameplay auch die toll gemachte Steuerung verantwortlich ist. Die abwechslungsreiche Begleitmusik hat ebenfalls wenig von ihrem Glanz eingebĂŒĂŸt, lediglich die Grafik wirkt anno 1993 reichlich blockig. Schön also, daß dieses Spiel nach wie vor erhĂ€ltlich ist, und das sogar zum Budgetpreis von 29 SaurierzĂ€hnen.

Commodore User (7 out of 10) (70%)

Bubble Bobble is a competent conversion of a highly enjoyable arcade game and, apart from the aforementioned irritants, a very accurate one. An extremely playable game which will appeal to a variety of ages.

Your Amiga (54 out of 100) (54%)

The idea for Bubble Bobble is suitably wacky, but then what do you expect from Taito? The two characters Bub and Bob are a hit in the arcades and even though this version hardly uses the Amiga's capabilities to the full there are some nice features that are not on the Atari ST version.

Australian Commodore and Amiga Review N/A

I feel that the Amiga version plays better and smoother than the C-64 version, the graphics and sound are better as you'd expect. I can't define it exactly but the Amiga version just "feels" better although I'm playing it the hard way now. My C-64 library includes a version with infinite lives' you see... There's a lot more which you can only learn by playing the game and I recommend that you go out and buy it straightaway. You won't regret it.
