Hack of Bubble Bobble

Description:

This complete Bubble Bobble hack is based on the music of Needlecraft, a currently defunct band from Missoula, MT. It was created to coincide with the unveiling of their first full-length LP, and was given away at the record release party in the form of a download slip packaged with a photo print of its theoretical cartridge and a “Game Pak Instruction Manual” designed to look like an actual NES booklet. (While the print files for most of the booklet have been lost to the ravages of time, the back cover was preserved and is included in the zip file along with the cartridge image!)

The hack itself features a complete redesign of each level, along with new graphics (characters, items, enemies… the works!) and a new plot based on Needlecraft songs (primarily “Dogmen from Outer Space,” “Hunk Out!!,” and “Haunted Car Chase”). While most Bubble Bobble fans are probably unfamiliar with Needlecraft’s music, it is the author’s hope that they’ll still enjoy the reimagined levels, challenges, and humorous look this hack provides.

For those interested in listening to what this strange band of yesteryear sounded like, feel free to listen to the album this hack was released with at https://needlecraft.bandcamp.com/album/needlecraft
