Bubble Bobble (1986)
Red Parsley, my humble yet passionately pursued blog, has just played host to its first review of an 'All Time Great' which also happened to coincide with the first 'Perfect Ten' review here. So, what better time for another Game Gallery?
I'm pretty sure there's not many gamers who would challenge the generally held belief that Bubble Bobble is one of the greatest videogames ever made. The fact that it's composed of a massive 100 rounds of action certainly doesn't hurt, but it does mean it's a lengthy trek to play through the whole game. Some people, such as my new Facebook friend and fellow retro gamer, Tobias, are somehow able to play through the entire game without even losing one life. Others however, like me, are not so gifted and can only reach round 40 on a good day! It was therefore an enormous challenge for me to play through the game for this piece which necessitated a great many 'save states'! It was also a privilege and a pleasure, however, to see this great game in its entirety and I happily present the entire roster of Bubble Bobble rounds below as the fruits of my labour :)
(apologies for the unreliability of ImageShack - all the images work but I'm not sure how consistently!)
Part 2 coming soon! :)
