Games Asylum: "When Bubble Bobble 4 Friends arrived on Switch roughly a year ago, publisher ININ decided to launch the arcade revival in Europe first. Why? Simply because the first Bubble Bobble was a runaway success during the late ‘80s, with most European computer formats receiving a highly rated conversion. The Master System version from 1991 was also outstanding.
Decades on, the arcade original remains brilliant – the ability to capture enemies in bubbles before bursting them is still a fun and playful mechanic, holding much appeal."
