bagronken's Bubble Bobble (Game Boy) review

What's that? Timmy fell down the well?

100 levels of pop 

I first played this game as a child, back in the days of the the great white brick, also known as the original Game Boy. I never completed it back then, but recently set my mind to re-play my old games and I had a hard time putting this old gem down. 
While the controls are a bit stiff for my taste, the music is absolutely fantastic and really draws you into the bubble-popping gameplay. Some boss fights are a tad too hard and a bit cheap way, but at least the Password Pak system saves you from repeating any levels when dying and finally beating them is really rewarding. 

Pros & Cons

+ Amazing music 
+ Good gameplay
- Bit stiff controls 
- Tad uneven difficulty
