This 1997 Sega Saturn conversion is an official sequel to Bubble Bobble, and is a brilliant game in its own right.
The Sega Saturn version is arguably the best version available (there was an arcade version, but you only had to buy this once), and is a must-find-and-play retro game in my humble opinion.
