My girls fav

Mustachio75, Amazon

  • Summary: Pretty good n64 title. Great for my 7 and 5 year olds. The Powerpuffs are their favorite. Simple controls and characters they live. All in all a great but and I was quite surprised it shipped in original unopened packaging.

Nearly unplayable

  • Summary: Graphics: B+ The graphics are nice looking and are improved over the Playstation version, though I don't think that they are the best that the DS has to offer. The style is truly adorable and the character models are particularly good.

Truly fun DS game marred by sluggish controls

C. Bakehorn, Amazon

  • Summary: The successor to the Taito classic Bubble Bobble was Rainbow Islands, a game that featured very similar run-around-and-kill-enemies gameplay. Rainbow Islands Revolution, the DS remake made by Rising Star Games, is nothing like the old-school classic in execution.

It's Rainbow Islands, but not as we know it.

Marc Bell, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the first time writing a review on Amazon for me. I felt incredibly compelled to let the world know what to expect from this game. From a hardcore gamer, and retro gamers perspective. Bubble Bobble is one of my favourite games of all time.

Rainbow Islands Revolution

  • Excerpt: Having liked the original Rainbow Islands on the C64 and PC I could not wait to give this ago. At £19.99 (Now even less to purchase) I was somewhat surprised and a little dispointed.
  • Pros: Like the Original
  • Cons: Stylus moments to control Bubby & Bobby

Hugely disappointing, annoying control

Rasmus Dyhr Frederiksen "rasmusdf", Amazon
4 May 2007
  • Summary: Really a disappointment - the game is not much like the original game. And the touch screen control is a disaster, requiring you to both steer a bubble, as well as draw rainbows, unfortunately, you often need to do this simultaneously, but can't, resulting in a lot of frustration.

Oops

Badgergirl, Amazon

  • Summary: Why, oh why did I buy this. I saw it as I was at the checkout in Game and thought 'yes!' as I was a huge fan of the Amiga version. Big, big mistake. This is dreadful. Be warned, there are very, very few similarities between this and the orginal. And of course I won't get my money back at Game.

Well I enjoyed it!

D Raymond, Amazon

  • Summary: You play as as little boy inside a bubble. Being in the bubble means you drift around with the wind, and you can tell which way this is going by other, smaller, bubbles that drift across the screen. You drag him around with the stylus, which you also use to draw rainbows to kill enemies.

An old classic game but not quite the same

Emily Shrimpton, Amazon
4 May 2007
  • Summary: the game doesn't quite have the same effect when using the stylus to create a rainbow, but then again the classic games never seem to be the same. Still a good game just a bit repetitive.

Big and bright 20 years ago, but this pales in comparison.

  • Summary: This game was pretty big when it came out; addictive sequel to Bubble Bobble with the brightest graphics around. But this version is pretty dire in comparison. In an attempt to make use of the unique DS features, this has been made into a touchscreen only game.
