Bubble Bobble: Old & New: POPPED!

HARDEST. BOSS. EVAAR. Probably. After 8976749836 more goes, I finally killed him! And, with his bubble popped, it was time to watch the credits roll… only… what’s this? I only rescued Patty or Tilly or Fluffy or Boris or whatever her name is. “This is not a true ending!” it says. I now need to do it again in two player mode! Or so I thought.

I’ve been playing this all evening, and after some real bitches of levels (73, 95 and 99 stand out), I finally made it to level 100. The boss. After 8752354523847 goes, I still can’t kill him.

Gah! After playing to level 28 or so last night, I find when I come to play it today that my game hasn’t saved. Rubbish. So, back to level 18. I worked my way through to level 40-ish this time. No bosses yet – I’m sure the original had them at levels 25, 50, 75 and 100.

Bubble Bobble: Old & New

Played single player “New” for a bit, and made it as far as level 28 or so. I then had a go on single-cart two-player with my wife. It’s fun for a while, but unfortunately you can only play the first 12 levels over and over again. And, being the first 12 levels, they’re not even difficult. Needless to say I racked up some 1,500,000 points before becoming bored rather than dying. It’s slightly bizarre that you only get one …
