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!
