If the Arcade version of Puzzle Bobble released for the Amstrad wasn’t enough to get you excited, then you’ll love this latest news story on Indie Retro News. As trawling through the lemon64 forums, we have found out that as of today you can download the brand new Arcade conversion of Puzzle Bobble which has been released for the Commodore 64 thanks to ACIED, NM1564 and Hend as a 100% replica of the Puzzle Bobble arcade version in every respect!
Puzzle Bobble is a tribute to Taito and the C64 with it being completely free without any commercial intent. Taito will be respected as well as the logo and trade mark, with the source code being released at a later date for other developers to make clones or other versions. The game uses high fidelity sound effects and 4 bit samples with the use of patterns instead of regular sfx to obtain the best possible sfx for gaming, the game is bitmap based as an advantage of using as much colour as needed for the background and playfield, and the best of all a lot of graphical features, as well as much much more including a two player mode, joystick and paddle support!
