Review of 'Bubble Bobble'

Rating:3 User: YOR

Bubble Bobble could and should have been a great arcade port and fair enough the gameplay alone merits it being so, but the game's ugly graphics let it down badly. Also the sound when you jump is horrible too, it sounds like our protagonist is suffocating and gasping for air. And Tim Follin's rendition of the classic theme is nice but one of the sound channels is hideously off key which today makes it hard to listen to, back then you didn't notice nor cared but it's noticeable now. I shouldn't knock the graphics too much, but nicer looking games exist and one of them should have been Bubble Bobble.
