Did You Know?


Taito, game's creators, announced in 1996 that they had lost the game's original source code during a reorganization process. In order to produce the sequels and ports that had started production around that time, the programmers had to reverse engineer them by playing the older Bubble Bobble games and studying the game mechanics.

Bubble Bobble - best commodore 64 game ever
27 December 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Man I love Bubble Bobble for commodore 64. What a cool game. The music was very good. The game play ruled. As most commodore 64, it takes me back to the 80ties, when I was little. The same feeling must many Others also have. This game was also popular to other computer-types, and with good reason. This is one of the greatest computer games ever: It was simple, good and cosy - can you demand anything more? No! If you love commodore 64 - you will without a doubt know this game. This game became a part subculture and pop culture in the 80ties, and that is why the game appears on this marvellous movie-site. And with all the games which has been adapted to film over these last years, then who knows? Maybe we will some day see a Bubble Bobble movie - I know I want to see one. If Doom has been turned into a movie then Bubble Bobble has just as good potential.

This game is a legend. Bubble Bobble I love you and salute you.
