Defunct Games (Feb 04, 2007)
Overall, Bubble Bobble is a timeless classic that is always worthy to acquire - no matter for what system - if you didn't own a copy of it yet. In the library of games for the Game Gear it especially stands out as an incredibly fun game to which you will always return once in a while.
It is very reminiscent of the old games when the emphasis was on good game play and fun. Sometimes it's better to just stick to simplicity rather than just pretty graphics. The Link Option is also a big plus for an already good game. It's well done.
Bubble Bobble takes only a minute to learn, but many hours to win. It is fun to play for a little while at a time which is perfect for a portable game.

Faire tenir chaque niveau de Bubble Bobble sur l’écran d’une console portable, c’est un peu comme faire rentrer un éléphant dans une niche à chien: un sacré défi. Même si cette version Game Gear l’a finalement plutôt bien relevé – en ayant le bon goût, au passage, de ne pas galvauder le mode deux joueurs – il faut reconnaître qu’on reste assez loin de l’expérience originale. Une curiosité, malgré tout.
