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.

ONE of those games everyone has played.
12 November 2007 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

THIS game still exist in most arcades as far as I remember this was always playing at any video arcades and it can still be downloaded.

IT seems simple at first put enemies in bubble then Pop'em but it gets harder more and more enemies come at you it's hard to keep track. I still play this online you can play as two boys who turned into dragons there's a spin off rainbow islands where you play in human form. I would love to see a animated movie base on bubble bobble and of Q Bert. They certainly would be better them some of the other video game movies.

This is a true video game classic that will be around for some time.
