Welcome BobbleGirl.

my score: 1,620,310

INP using WM106 If you would like to view my game.


See links below for some good tips:

Bubble Bobble info page

special items: Bubble Bobble info page

Level guide

-What I like to do on the first level is to put all the enemies in a bubble and jump on top of them.
If you jump at lease 51 times, according to the special items page, you will get the yellow sweet that gives you the rapid fire on the next level.
From what I've seen, you don't need to jump 51 times, around 30 usually works.
This makes the game a lot easier.

-Always pop as many enemies at the same time as possible: This will give you more points 1000 for one 2000 for 2 - 4000 for 3 - 8000 for 4 - 16 000 for 5 and so on. The fruits you get will also give you more points. Also when you pop more than 3 enemies, you will get letters to spell EXTEND. If you kill 3 you will get 1 letter, 4 you will get 2 letters and so on. When you pop more that 3 enemies but don't end the level, the letters will appear right away. If you don't get the letter in the current level, they will come back at the beginning of the next level.

-If you get to level 20 without loosing a life, you will have a special item, if you get the item you will go to a special level with only diamonds in it. There is almost 400k just in this level. After that, if you go to level 30, again without loosing a life, you will have the treasure room again and one last time if you go to level 40 without loosing a man.

-Try to get your tens and hundreds digits lined up. For example 10990, 270110, 345660. Blow as many bubbles as you can, as far as possible from the enemies that are already captured in bubbles. Then pop all the enemies, make sure that you don't hit any other empty bubbles before you do because it will increase your score by 10 making this trick not work. All the empty bubbles will change to fruits worth 700 points each. This way you can get 5000 or 6000 extra point at each level.

If anybody need any help please let me know.
