Clearly I missed this whole challenge thing. How does this work now? How do we compete?

I haven't even tried this one yet, actually. I'm holding off. Bubble Bobble irks me quite a bit, but most of that is the music, and I won't be listening to it.

You're a bit late to the party Dr., this is the final week of the competition. I think there's an SNES one planned at the end of next month.

Okay, I finally got a chance to try this.

I think I hit him 6 times.

That's a total for all my runs.

Fuck.

That reminds me, I've got something to submit... I spent all today drinking pretty much. I wonder how Bubble Bobble is after a rum and coke.

I bet it's a trip!

Some of these are driving me crazy trying to remember where they're from.

These are hard. Can we just play TMNT again?

For the record the last song is not from a game. I just wanted to include it. That is all.

So the final boss is Super Drunk. I can't believe that slipped by the NES Censor Nazis. They must have been...well, super drunk.

But we're fighting him on Super Bubble Bobble mode.

Plus, we need to beat him when he's powered up.

So our goal is to beat Super Super Super Drunk?

Actually, he's only Super Drunk in the Japanese version.

In the North American version, he's Grumple Gromit, and the regular Drunks are called Willy Whistle. When you beat the game, the credit sequence shows the original Japanese named for the basic monsters, but iirc, it doesn't show the boss.

I really don't understand this challenge. Anytime I throw a bubble at him, it just goes through him.

Ok, so I managed to figure it out, but 2 hits was my best effort.

I was really bored last night and went through the whole game to get to the boss.

Should I submit the video? Razz

Yeah, but Super Super Grumble Gromit sounds dumb.

I wouldn't. Unless you played through Super Bubble Bobble, you fought a different end boss (slightly different, but different nonetheless) and possibly had more lives to work with.

My run:


And a little bonus for those who want something new and challeng-y to do.



Start a 2-player game of Bubble Bobble, but only play the first player. See how far you can get. Game is over when P2 runs out of lives and you can't "donate" one from your own supply (by pressing start/select). If P2 runs out of lives, you need to bring him back in as soon as possible.

I got to L14.

Nice run Satsui.

The next NES Challenge, if it has this game, should probably be like a Non-Continuing run or 1 life run of the game Smile It's a lot of fun... plsu I've found some levels you may actually need more than 1 life to complete due to the irritating location of enemies.
