A game featureing Bub
. The little fellows
sit at the bottom of the screen
operating an pointer on a big wheel.
The pointer directs bubbles to the top of the
screen where any coloured bubbles reside.
You control Bub or Bob
and use them to aim the pointer.
You fire the bubble with the fire key.
As the game progresses the bubbles
on the top of the screen progress towards you.
If they reach the bottom of the screen you are dead.
You remove the bubbles by matching
three bubbles of the same colour together through
firing bubbles from the pointer. Irresepective
of how many similar coloured bubbles are collected
together, they only pop once another one of that colour
is places in the arrangement by you. If bubbles
of any other colour are attached only through
the set thet you hvae popped to the top of the screen, they fall out of the bottom of the screen,
hastening the amount of time
it takes to clear the level.
In the two player version any bubbles you make dissapear
appear on your opponants screen.
I was playing this game when Manchester United
were played Bayern Munich
in the Europen cup final. In the four minutes
in which Man U scored all of their goals I was
busy with a tricky level of puzzle bobble
and missed all of the goals. Oh well.
