This sequel to Rainbow Islands sees a return to the gameplay of Bubble Bobble, but with Bub and Bob in their now-human forms.

The boys must clear a series of screens of bad guys - who take slightly more esoteric forms than the angry caterpillars from Rainbow Islands - and again pick up a whole bunch of power-ups.

But this time they're armed with umbrellas! Oh, okay then, parasols...

Wrong "C64 version" trivia. 3 Alaka (86237)

C64 version

A C64 version was put into development by Ocean and even advertised. Unfortunately, Colin Porch's (programmer) disks were damaged by his enraged wife (later divorced), and development could not be resumed to meet the deadline.

Free Amiga demo

Ocean published a four-level demo for the Amiga version of this game, which is now freeware. It is still available for download here.
