Bubble Bobble Rom/Emulator file, which is available for free download on RomsEmulator.net. You can use emulator to play the Game Gear games on your Windows PC, Mac, Android and iPhone. The health system in this game is very weird. I question why a life has 1 heart which makes a heart power up the same as a life power up. When I've got 19 lives and 4 hearts and I translate it to 23 lives, that's a bizarre heart system. Download from the largest and cleanest ROMs and emulators resource on the net. Mobile optimized. Systems include N64, GBA, SNES, NDS, GBC, NES, MAME, PSX, Gamecube and more.

  • 4Unused Region Settings

Character Select

Much like Puzzle Bobble 2, you can select the playable character in both Puzzle and VS CPU modes when holding specific button combinations at the map screen. You can even select the characters left over from Bust a Move Again, since the ROM is always the same for every region!

The button combinations are different between 2 and 2X, but in the latter the list of available characters is much more complete.

VS CPU StageCharacterCode

These characters are unused in this game. Two of them are used, however, in Bust-a-Move Again.

Bust-a-Move Again PlayerHands1P + A + LeftThis character uses a cannon.
Bust-a-Move Again CPUComputer1P + A + Up + LeftThis character uses a cannon. Sound effects are different compared to Bust-a-Move Again.
UnusedSketch Bubblun1P + AIt uses Bub/Bob's sound effects and palette depending on player. Character ID invalid in Puzzle Bobble 2.

Unused Character


Even with the Character Select button combinations, there is one unused character that is unavailable through normal means:

A pink rabbit with a striking similarity to Sonic.

To do:

Put the following code in MAME's pbobble2x.xml cheat file and activate it to play as this character.

Notably, he actually appears in Puzzle Bobble 2's title screen and in the VS CPU Hard Ending, but in that game there is no valid character ID for the character.

Error Handler

Much like the other Puzzle Bobble games on the Taito F3, this screen appears whenever the game crashes.

Unused Region Settings

Since the game was never released outside Japan, these region settings are unused.

Bust-a-Move Again Mode

When the game region is set to US, the game behaves like Bust-a-Move Again, a leftover from Puzzle Bobble 2.

Other than the missing US-specific music, this mode clearly wasn't updated as:

  • The title screen hasn't been updated.
  • There are some palette errors, like with the pointer machinery.
  • Puzzle Bobble characters can still be seen in some screens.
  • After the Merry Christmas/Happy New Year demo ends the game crashes.
  • Test Mode settings are slightly broken. Play Price can't be selected: the cursor goes over an invisible option instead.
