batlbubl: MAME ROM Information.


Battle Bubble (c) 1999 Limenko.

Battle Bubble is about 2 lovely mice fighting against rascals who kidnapped their girlfriend. On their way to rescue her, they encounter 'bubbles' in their way. See how they wipe out the bubbles with bubbles.

It features 32 stages, and basic rule requires players to pop off all the bubbles in their way to clear stages. Throw your bubbles into the bothering bubbles of the matching color to pop and remove.

Protect yourself from the troublesome bubbles by blocking them with your bubbles. Collision with the bubbles diminishes player's health. Tricky traps like icy stage and boss stages make enemies even harder to deal with. In couple play mode, the game can be easier or harder depending on the harmony with the partner.

MAME Info:

0.37b15 [Luca Elia]

< Japan >


- When you finish a level, sometimes the game runs like slow-motion. Kale (ID 00525)


- 0.143u3: Fixed rom names.

- 0.139u2: Phil Bennett fixed Bang Bang Ball and clone audio malfunction after using -autosave.

- 0.105u1: f205v and Corrado Tomaselli added clone Battle Bubble (v2.00). Brian Troha fixed dipswitches in Battle Bubble. Added 'Language' dipswitch to Bang Bang Ball.

- 6th April 2006: David Haywood - Despite being Korean I'm tempted to say this looks like a licensed version of Bang Bang Ball. At least the board doesn't look much like a bootleg having original graphics and sound chips rather than the standard bootleg clone chips. The memory map has changed, but the game is the same, but with different graphics.

- 5th April 2006: f205v dumped Battle Bubble (v2.00).

- 0.62: Added YMF278B stereo sound and missing sound1 rom (Yamaha YRW801 2MB rom with samples for the YMF278B OPL4).

- 13th August 2002: Olivier Galibert added the YMF278B sound emulation to Bang Bang Ball.

- 0.37b15: Luca Elia added Bang Bang Ball (v1.05) (Banpresto / Kunihiko Tashiro+Goodhouse 1996).

- 17th May 2001: Luca Elia added Bang Bang Ball to the Metro driver.
