Bubble Bobble remake? (BB4CPC)
« on: 07:54, 05 January 11 »
Hey guys,

Does anyone have any news on the Bubble Bobble remake?

I can't find much information on the web but I have found its CNGSoft (who made the CPCE emulator) was making this and certainly has been in development since 2008.

Yes I talked with CNGSoft and he is back working on it again and it's progressing.
I have seen another version which does a bit more than that one.

This looks absolutely gorgeous. I love it when coders and artist take a   game that came out on a CPC, then update in all ways that are wonderful!   I saw a remake of the R-Type graphics on the CPC and that looks   great(haven't seen it move yet though...).

looks gorgeous........ but does it have sound  ;)  ???




hindsight is a wonderful thing as the saying goes - in the 80's / 90's when games were released remakes weren't considered seems silly this wasn't undertaken a remake of say poor games like jail break with better scrolling, easier control and movement, sound & fx, some extra bonuses etc  say a year out from release perhaps would have generated more money for software houses and coders.

To the untrained eye, it probably looks like a blocky mess, splashed with a colourful display. For me it's the CPC at its best! woo-hoo!!!

I hope there's an option to send them a blank cassette tape to put the game on, as it would be nice to play this on a real amstrad.

Years ago, Amstrad Action cover tapes came with the option to transfer to disk... used to love that!


Wasn't aware it could be done the other way round?

Absolute lovliness! I just had a look at the original cpc port. It's almost like 2 different games (no disrespect as I did enjoy that port too).

From what I can tell, you can't push bubbles at all, they just pop as soon as you touch them.  You can push bubbles even on the *cough* Spectrum version, so it should be doable.

Also, will the Power Up/Original Game/Super codes from the arcade version make an appearance?

The real Bubble bobble had quite a complicated bonus system... that was never fully implemented in any port...
