Bubble Bobble prĂ©sente, Ă  bien des niveaux, les caractĂ©ristiques du bon petit jeu de plateforme des annĂ©es 80, au principe assimilable en une poignĂ©e de secondes, et dont on pense qu’on aura fait le tour au terme de dix minutes de jeu. Grave erreur! Sous ses dehors mignons et sa jouabilitĂ© simplissime, le logiciel imaginĂ© par Taito dissimule en fait une vraie technicitĂ©, et franchir les cent niveaux du jeu vous demandera de maĂźtriser Ă  la perfection des subtilitĂ©s bien dissimulĂ©es qui peuvent changer votre façon de jouer du tout au tout. Si les joueurs occasionnels seront sans doute heureux de s’y essayer le temps de quelques parties, de prĂ©fĂ©rence Ă  deux, ceux qui mordront au concept pourront littĂ©ralement passer des semaines Ă  dĂ©couvrir les mille et une façons d’aborder un titre mettant bien plus la rĂ©flexion Ă  contribution qu’il n’y parait au premier abord. Essayez et vous comprendrez.

Gameplay is simplistic in design, but nicely balanced, and the graphics are colorfully clean. The music is repetitive, but not a deterrent for gamers looking for a smooth, enjoyable challenge. The game generated numerous sequels and spin-offs, including Rainbow Islands -- The Story Of Bubble Bobble 2 (1987).

Game Hoard, The (4 out of 7) (57%)

The cute and colorful adventure of Bub and Bob is, for the most part, a breezy and somewhat plain platforming adventure with a bunch of interesting items to tinker with and level layouts that do their job well enough. The later stages do ask a lot of the players though as they start asking for tight puzzle solving and perfect movement, but for the most part, the enemy-bubbling action is brisk thanks to the small levels, that size meaning they can present a quirky platform arrangement or power-up to play with as brief but interesting focuses. Bubble Bobble is charmingly saccharine and balances a simple premise with a wide variety of items to keep your interest, but it’s certainly more of a pastime than something to invest a heavy amount of time into, especially because it wants you to do far too much to see the game’s underwhelming true ending.

Crash! N/A

A deceptively simple game that proves very addictive and lots of fun to play. A high cuteness factor combined with a neat and bouncy tune that would fit with a children's TV show makes Bubble Bobble very compelling. Invest a few coins as soon as you can . . .
