Bubble Bobble (Arcade) is the Retro Game of the Day for 11 July, 2016

This is going to be another quick one: today’s RGotD is Bubble Bobble, a neat little platformer involving… um… blowing bubbles at enemies, capturing them inside… and… turning them into fruit?  Yeah, kind of weird.  But again, retro games didn’t have to make any sense, as long as they were fun. Remember fun?  I sure do.

Emulated on MAME with standard gamepad, works pretty well.  I just had to rush through today’s with no preparation time and the end result was I was pretty bad at the game… oh well.
