Bubble+

It was late '87 when Infogrames released Bubble Ghost, but there's little in this sequel to justify a two year wait, except a few new levels.

The objective is to blow a bubble from one side of the screen to the other, but it's a lot harder than it sounds. You use the mouse to move the ghost around the screen and the Shift key to make him blow the bubble. You have to be careful directing the bubble across the screen and avoid touching walls or obstacles.

As the game progresses you need to negotiate increasingly difficult obstacles, from candles which need to be blown out to an electric fan which blows your bubble towards a set of knives.

Verdict

Unfortunately the game offers you practice on any level, from one to 35, which essentially acts as a cheat, taking away the excitement of seeing how the levels change and the reward element for successfully completing a level.

Bubble+ is far from being 16-bit state-of-the-art, but with amusing graphics and tricky levels it makes a welcome change from run-of-the-mill shoot-'em-ups.
