Hi friends! It's time to play Bubble Bobble, the world famous classic Taito game. Although it is otherwise very popular, scoring in this game is generally very underrated. It's shock full of fun things you can go for to increase your score underway, and I'll be dedicating a separate post for documenting the best strategies to go for. More than anything though, simply surviving long enough is always guaranteed to get a decent score. This is one of my favourite games of all time, and I really hope a lot of the talented video game players in here are willing to go for a fun casual competition. If you already have an old score on record, please submit it here to get started, and everyone else, please give this game a spin! No continues (1 credit) - Single player only - Default settings Post your highest score and preferably also the round you died on (or "ALL" if you beat the final boss). Screenshots or videos of gameplay is strongly encouraged but not required. Auto-fire/turbo allowed. Savestates, cheats or passwords aren't. Bubble Bobble (Arcade/MAME/PS4/Switch/PS2/GBA) Default settings: Normal, 3 lives, extend at 30K, 100K, 400K # Username Score Round Date 1 SNESNESCUBE64 1,432,250 40 Bubble Bobble (NES/FDS) Just hit 1P Start # Username Score Round Date 1 LHCGreg 981,020 46 2017-05-01 A note on ports: Unfortunately most ports of Bubble Bobble are either very bad, or completely different from the arcade game. I'll be keeping a separate scoreboard for the NES version, because it's a good port even though it's very different, and generally much easier. I know a lot of people have that game, and are probably more experienced in it. However, "arcade" scores will be accepted only from the following ports: PS2 and Xbox (on Taito Legends), GBA (BB Old & New, "old" mode), PS4 (Arcade Archives), Switch (on BB4Friends) and of course emulation. If you have the option, I highly recommend the PS4 digital release. It's super cheap, lag-free, and the first actual arcade perfect port of the game. And the PS4 makes streaming and recording runs via Twitch a breeze. The version included on BB4Friends should be on point as well, but I personally find it too laggy to be playable. The other ports are decent, and I'm not currently aware of any mechanics in them that alter scoring in any major way. A note on arcade cabinets: If you happen to have an actual Bubble Bobble arcade game near you, please confirm the game is not a bootleg. Contemporary bootlegs of this game were so common back in the 80s that if the owner isn't 100% certain it's an original, it's most likely a bootleg. This is important because bootlegs (accidentally) change the gameplay so drastically, that it's essentially a different game. One of the biggest changes is that they suffer the same issue as the PS1/SS ports where most enemies that should be shooting projectiles at you never will do that, making the later stages much easier. Bootlegs some times say "Super Bubble Bobble" or "Bobble Bobble" on the title screen, but others can only be spotted by paying attention to enemy behavior. A note on resetting the game: The arcade version carries over certain counters between plays. That means you can set up the game to give you high scoring point items on subsequent plays. This is just a fun casual competition, so resetting the game between attempts isn't required, but I do expect players to not intentionally abuse this mechanic. On the PS4 port, playing the "hi score mode" is the preferred way of playing, as it deals with this, and prevents other potential cheats. HAVE FUN !
I've been playing the pikmin 3 deluxe demo a lot. It's a very solid demo. There is 1 timed mission called Tropical Forest that you can keep replaying. Your high score will eventually get uploaded online once you get the full game (which comes out October 30th), but for now there's no way to see how you stack up against everyone. So pikmin players, what are your high scores for the Tropical Forest mission? Mine is 5,620
