Game Introduction

Bub and Bob, from Bubble Bobble, are asked to rescue the Rainbow Islands. They get the power to create rainbows to jump on and hit enemies with. There are lots of special items: speed-up, power-up, kill everything, invulnerability. Also, there are lots of secrets and dozens of items that can only be seen if things are done in a certain order.

Game Play

Kill enemies by hitting them with rainbows or by crushing rainbows on their head. There are seven levels each with four rounds. Holding down the jump button will allow you to jump onto rainbows without crushing them.
