Bubble Bobble Plus (Wii)

Bubble Bobble Plus (Wii)

Played co-op with my wife this afternoon. All was going well, until we reached level 72. Which is impossible.

I remembered it from the arcade version, and although it was bit fiddly there, on Bubble Bobble Plus it is, in fact, impossable. You start in a narrow column, and can’t get out without jumping on bubbles. Problem is, you’re too enclosed to blow any as they burst immediately.

In the arcade version, you can put your back to the left wall and just about get clearance. But in this version, you can’t. If you’re up against the left wall, you can’t face right without moving away from the wall, reducing the space you have for bubbles. It’s difficult to describe, so here’s Adam Dawes on Youtube showing us how to do the arcade version.

Now imagine that, but without being able to jam yourself into the left side of the level. That’s Bubble Bobble Plus! Grr!


  1. It's tough, but it can be done. Move all the way against a wall, jump and just tap away from the wall, you will have enough space. Success on this level for bubble bobble plus can be seen on youtube.

  2. I can’t believe I wasted 600 Wii Pts on this game b/c I get the same problem. I was able to make 2 bubbles but thats it. I sent an email to Nintendo and their response was…”While Nintendo does not have gameplay assistance dedicated to that game, there is an abundance of help from your fellow players online. Although it isn’t easy, I assure you that it is possible to complete Level 72. To see if there is online help available for your game, use your favorite Internet search engine. Entering the game’s title in the search field should be enough to point you in the right direction; additionally, you can narrow your search by including the following words: walkthrough, FAQ, codes, tips. I wish you the best of luck in your search and in playing Bubble Bobble Plus!”

    So much for Nintendo’s help!!!
