Trivia[]

This game is a hack of Rainbow Islands: The Story of Bubble Bobble 2 made by some bootleggers in Europe. However, it include very major differences on it (both in-game and in hardware):

  • The Rainbow Project screen when the game is powered on was replaced with a lot of corrupted red tiles;
  • The Taito copyrights on the Title Screen was either replaced by Seyutu Electronics or blanked;
  • The main character face was redrawn, resembling more like Disney's Pinocchio. In some versions, it could have a yellow or a red nose;
  • The main character creates a arc of stars instead a rainbow arc;
  • There are no music in the Darius Island, being completely silent;
  • The music in Bubble Island goes off rhythm and corrupts itself overtime;
  • Most of the Secret Rooms in the hack are broken;
  • The collision detection on platforms are weakened (at least for enemies);
  • The PCB does not contain a uPD78C11 chip (used for copy protection);
  • The music and effects of the game are provided by 2xYM2203 instead of a single YM2151.
  • Insect Island and Combat Island are renamed Fly Island and Army Island, respectively.
