    The fact that it's almost arcade perfect with 2 player co-op makes this game hard to leave on the shelf.

    A classic title, well-deserved. It had a totally new play style that hadn't been done before and was simply a smash-hit. The NES was an excellent port of the arcade, to my knowledge it was virtually...

    Bubble Bobble is an exiting game. It takes basic game principles and twist and turns them in remarkable ways. For its time, Bubble Bobble probably an astounding game. Bubble Bobble takes place in t...

    Bubble Bobble was a simple sort of game, that made you run around and trap robots and pop them. 100 levels goes by fast.

    Almost everyone knows bubble bobble because it was remade on the PC, and is constantly advertised as a free download able game. Let me tell you, there's a reason why it's free. OK, first of all, th...

    An amazing, simple to learn, hard to master (score-wise) game.

    Simple = Fun.

    Rated on November 30, 2009 by wiredscotty

    I can sum up this game in just a few words. You're a cute dragon who goes through 100 stages shooting bubbles at enemies and turning them into fruit. That's all there is to it. And DAMN is it fun!...
