[Budget re-release] 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.

Your Sinclair (90 out of 100) (90%)

[Budget re-release] The small but detailed monochrome graphics make the action easy on the eyes, and in the best tradition of cute games there are a whole load of surprises to discover. Yup, if you haven't guessed by now, this is Megagame material. On your own you'll find it playable enough - team up with another Spec-chum and it's a riot!

Crash! (90 out of 100) (90%)

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.

[Budget re-release] In short, Bubble Bobble is one of the playable platform games around!

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.

Nauseatingly cute conversion that is nonetheless horribly addictive. definitely has love- hate potential.

Programmé correctement, le ZX Spectrum est capable de proposer des adaptations ludiques très honnêtes, et Bubble Bobble en est un bon exemple. En dépit des limitations techniques inhérentes à la machine de Sinclair, on pourra difficilement trouver un reproche sérieux à formuler à l’encontre de cette version, qui préserve tout ce qui fait la force du jeu.

ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (7.2 out of 12) (60%)

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.
