Another Bubble Bobble Game Horribly Broken

Bubble Bobble Revolution BoxartAccording to a post on Go Nintendo, it looks like the latest version of Bubble Bobble for the DS is terribly broken. According to one of their readers, when players get to the boss fight on level 30, the boss is conveniently absent. Invariably, players are left to wonder what the rest of the game is like since making it past this fight is impossible.

When questioned about the boss’s absence, Codemasters replied with:

“We have been looking very hard into this issue with Nintendo and have now determined that all of the cartridges that have been shipped in North America are faulty.

Needless to say we are extremely sorry that this situation has arisen and would like to apologise to you for this issue.

We have already started the process whereby a corrected version is to be manufactured and will ensure that all customers have their copies replaced. Unfortunately this will take 8-10 weeks (simply because of the time required to manufacture new carts). We will update you with what you will need to do to get a replacement game, as soon as this has been determined.”

This reminds me of when I tried to play the Bubble Bobble remake released on the original PlayStation in the late 90’s. In one of the later levels (around 80 or 90) due to the altered bounce mechanics it was impossible to get out of your starting area. I was never able to finish that stupid game either.

Here’s some video of the actual non-fight in Bubble Bobble Revolution:
