Bubble Bobble returns in fine form, showing off to a new generation why it’s earned such a following over the decades. This new version looks great, is full of nostalgic charm, and most importantly, tons of dinosaur bubble-filled charm.
Taito really had a challenge here with the concept of revamping Bubble Bobble, because if you change the game’s ‘tired & true’ formula too much, it can result in a game that doesn’t feel the same. On the other hand, if it’s just the same basic game it can come off as a “cheap cash grab”. Luckily, Taito understood the market and the Bubble Bobble franchise by keeping the things we love about the original while still being able to pull us in and keeping us there with some new elements and updated graphics.
That said, there’s not much to dislike in Bubble Bobble 4 Friends if you’re looking for some simple yet solid arcade action. Whether you play alone or with friends, there’s fun to be had, and with 100 levels to get through, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into. Its modern facelift looks great, but it is little more than an old classic in disguise.
