Taito's Bubble Bobble Revolution game for Nintendo DS has a game-halting bug in the U.S. version. Apparently in the big boss battle in level 30 the boss never appears, meaning that the game just sits there on an empty level waiting for a boss who will never come.
All faulty cartridges will be replaced 8-10 weeks from now.
"Taito's arcade library remains one of the most impressive in gaming history so let's revisit 2 of their most iconic series and see which one offers better bubble-busting games." - A.J. Maciejewski from Video Chums
"We've all been there. Back to the wall. Knee-deep in the dead. When all of a sudden... the screen freezes. Congratulations, you just wasted six hours of your life. And man, did you get off easy.
Because some bugs do more than freeze your game. They can erase save files, ruin other games, and even damage the hardware they're played on.
They are... The Worst Videogame Bugs of All Time. "
In Nintendo DS terms, Ubisoft's Gameloft division is best known for the Asphalt: Urban GT series as well as the port of Splinter Cell, games that aren't really that noteworthy in the dual-screen handheld's library. After playing the team's Brothers in Arms DS, Gameloft could have their first massive hit on the portable. IGN will hold off any final thoughts for when they review this release in a few weeks, but so far this game is one impressive handheld experience.
