Filler Video #21

Bubble Bobble Part 2

Additional Information and Corrections:

  • I tried to do this video without a script because of how short on time I was... I definitely perform better with a script than without. Even had to make some stealth edits because I got a couple facts wrong. >_>;

  • Most of the reasons why I don't like YouTube revolve around how they handle their policies coupled with the lack of any real tech support if things go wrong. Not to mention about 80% of the people I've ever watched on YouTube have run into difficulties with them sooner or later and some of them have even had their videos deleted or their accounts terminated. Really, I don't want to have to deal with any of that, then have to somehow explain to all my viewers that it's not my fault that things are going screwy. :P

  • Although one of the last NES games there were still about 30 or so more (licensed titles) following this one. Still, with over 700 games on the NES...

  • There's only 80 levels in the game as opposed to 100, so it's a little shorter than other Bubble Bobble games.

  • Some of the powerups are only attainable after beating a mini-game from going through a gate and they last as long as you can go without using a continue! This includes the Alarm Bell, which works just like in other Bubble Bobble games, a special pyramid which makes scoring items fall down after every level, and even a 1UP medallion that drops five one-up powerups for you to collect!

  • One thing that's very curious is that it IS indeed possible for this invincible enemy to appear if you're taking too long, but this takes a huge amount of time, upwards of a full minute on more! I don't think I've ever seen this enemy appear during normal gameplay, only when intentionally trying to get it to appear... at least, in single-player mode. When I was doing my two-player run this thing was appearing far more often than usual. I think there might be some dynamics going on with the difficulty depending on how many lives you have... that's just a guess though.

  • One of the bubble types I neglected to mention because it only shows up a tiny handful of times are the Explosive Bubbles. Basically, if you touch them, they explode, and the explosion will kill you if you're too close, though it will also kill enemies. Generally, you want to avoid them because the only way to safely pop them is from a distance by popping a string of bubbles.

  • I actually played through the two-player mode using both players and noticed that it's actually far more challenging, since when the game changes to the other player, the entire level resets! This makes certain levels far more difficult than usual since if you die after defeat most of the enemies, you have to defeat all of the enemies all over again! :O
