The sequel to 1986’s excellent arcade hit Bubble Bobble see’s you return as brothers Bub and Bob this time transformed from Dragons in the original to Boys in this version.

With similar, albeit updated, colourful animated sprites and collect the fruit for point objective, this game takes the previous single screen action into an increasingly challenging series of vertically scrolling levels.

Instead of firing bubbles at the nasties that appear on screen to impede your progress this time it’s colourful rainbows that double up as temporary platforms to aid your progress up the screen.

It’s a fun arcade accurate port.  Possibly the overall most enjoyable of the three games included in the Amiga’s Flight of Fantasy pack.  That said it doesn’t hold a candle to the superior ’86 original.
