User Summary

The Bubble Bobble game franchise started with the arcade game Bubble Bobble in 1986, and is a strange mix of different games. The first sequel, Rainbow Islands, featured the same main character but a different game system. The second sequel Parasol Stars, from 1991, shared the subtitle "The Story of Bubble Bobble III" with the arcade game "Bubble Memories" from 1996, which was preceded by the arcade game "Bubble Symphony" from 1994, called "Bubble Bobble 2" in the west. To complicate even further, there was a Famicom (NES) original "Bubble Bobble 2" in 1993. In 1994, Taito also released the action puzzle game "Puzzle Bobble", a completely different game series where the player shot bubbles that bounced, trying to connect similarly coloured bubbles together, in the spirit of the Tetris-type colour-coded games of that time. Puzzle Bobble alone spawned several sequels and was in the US renamed to "Bust a move", a name which later collided with the 1998 dance rhythm game "Bust a Move" from Enix. The dance game was renamed "Bust a Groove" in the US.
