I've been waiting for this game for awhile. Loved the classic Bubble Bobble game...but 4.99 is a bit pricey for a rehash and I've a not a fan of the new redone version..might wait for 2.99 before I take the plunge.

Released in the US.

Passing on this one for sure. The new mode isn't interesting and the classic looks like a gameboy color port

I can't believe they didn't do classic mode in portrait, or did they?

Dear Taito, Listen to me when I say this!!! I want Jungle Hunt!!!! Jungle Hunt!!! Jungle Hunt!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's all I want!! I pumped a million quarters into it years ago, including the sit-down model, and ended up buying the cabinet version which I had in my first house for 14 years. Bought the xbox version a long time ago, as well! Would love nothing more than to have that in my pocket!! Tell me you're going to release that some time-PLEASE!!!!! PM me if you want! Thanks!

Default Initial impression

Bought it mainly for classic mode, being a big big fan of the original. Zoom only increases the size of the window a tiny bit and there's no portrait mode. Was hopeful of 2-player bluetooth after the 'push start' screen but no joy. On the plus side, it has the original music/sound effects

Edit: So far trying out the new mode, it looks alright using the original characters against a flashy backdrop, but been currently in zone B, it's just a case of tapping the monsters to encapsulate them in a bubble, then tap again to pop and make chains. So far kinda easy and definitely repetitive.

No 2-player is a shame...

It looks like an arcade perfect conversion, no 2-player apart. Bubble Bobble original hardware wasn't so powerful...

I don't mean to be rude but the new mode looks like it was designed by 8 year olds and the price is a complete joke.

Thanks but NO thanks

I will see for myself what it's worth since I bought it this morning.

Given the previous taito's remakes (rainbow islands on xla, ds, bubble bobble psp and ds) I keep my hope rather low.


EDIT :

The remake of the original bubble bobble is pretty decent.

Controls are responsive, graphics are faithfull to the arcade version.
On the other side of the coin, the game screen is really too small and the zoom option... humm... doesn't improve the situation since it's a 110% zoom (100% being the original size).

Since the release comes with openfeint, I can foresee an update in a not too distant future.

Great classic,hard to believe someone could ruin this.Looks like some demented old fart spent his lunch money and break putting it together.Ever heard of trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear,well it appears someone has made a sows ear out of a silk purse.
When I 1st saw it I thought it was an April fools joke but soon realised it was October.
