Player's Review

"Meet Bub and Bob, two of the busiest beasties you ever saw, as they battle their way across 100 levels of controlled chaos in search of their girlfriends (ahhhh!). Jump around picking up goodies and secret weapons as you seek to outsmart your enemies, but beware, hang around too long and you'll face Baron von Blubba, from whom there's no escape!"

One of the best arcade conversions on the C64. One of the best games I bought back then and it still stands up and plays well today. Great music and overall well presented. A bit easier than other conversions but it can still throw some tricky situations at you requiring some trick jumping to glitch the collision detection. Unfortunately while most of the arcade game mechanics are intact, the ending is not leaving only the bad ending when completed in one player. No credit roll.

In the longplay I play through the main game trying to avoid any umbrella warps although the odd Extra bonus will skip a level. I then show a second run using the Super Mode cheat which puts some of the tougher enemies right at the start of the game throwing projectile's. I had to reset the game to input the cheat mode which also reset the scores. In the second run I do make use of umbrella warps as well as showing all secret doors by not losing any lives. The game strangely does not award me with enough Extra letters to get that bonus.
