Doot doot doot, dootdoot doot doot, dootdoot doot doot doo-doooooo
It was very popular in Sweden, the NES had a lifespan from first to last game of 9 years and BB was in the top 30 most sold games for the system in this timespan. Old copies of this game still cost about 40-50$ for a loose copy :P
They don't look quite that bad on the artwork, but not great either.
yeah i pump the breaks a little due to the DS rehashes
Back in its day, definitely--the European computer versions were atypically well-made and that style of game was particularly well-suited to those machines, so that whole subgenre was pretty big at the time.
Oh, I'm sure it was popular back when it first launched, but that statement suggests it still is extremely popular in Europe today; given that there hasn't been a title in the series for a good few years now, I'm not sure that statement holds up in 2019.
I mean, it's on the NES Mini, it's on Arcade Archives, etc so there's probably recent data telling them who still cares and where they are.
Puzzle Bobble has been endlessly imitated and rereleased; I'm not too sure what a new title in the series could do. We don't get that many arena co-op platformers these days.
