The latest entry in the Bubble Bobble series features 100 levels and a new 4-player cooperative mode integrated into the game. As a bonus, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends includes the 1986 coin-op original, Bubble Bobble showing how far the series has come from the initial solo or 2-player modes.

The “EXTEND” feature is new to the series and acts as a skill upgrade system. To unlock upgrades players will need to collect letter bubbles in levels to spell out “EXTEND.” These bubbles appear briefly and need to be collected before they pop.

If a player can collect all the bubbles in a world and defeat the boss then they’ll be rewarded with a new skill or an upgraded skill. Players can unlock the following EXTEND skills: long shot, thunder bubble, bomb bubble, stop wind, and dash skill. Before entering a new world, players can tinker around with skill combinations to make sure they are equipped to tackle tough challenges.

Another new feature to Bubble Bobble 4 Friends are chain reactions. Chain reactions occur from multiple burst bubbles with trapped enemies. By creating chain reactions you can earn more points and more and higher quality food.

Our Take

The 1986 original Bubble Bobble was a delight! Having played the original recently at Ground Kontrol here, I’m very excited to see if this new sequel can re-capture the magic. Hopefully, the new mechanics added in with EXTEND and chain reactions update the series without losing what made the original so charming.
