Bubble Bobble Part 2 (Japanese: バブルボブル2 Bubble Bobble 2) is the sequel to Bubble Bobble, and the fourth Bubble Bobble game overall. It was released by Taito for the NES in 1993. Bub and Bob must rescue Betty from the Skull Brothers, who are the pieces of Baron von Blubba's soul split into three after his demise in Rainbow Islands.
The gameplay of Bubble Bobble Part 2 is similar to the first Bubble Bobble, with a few new features. Bub and Bob can now charge their bubbles up in order to inflate and float up to the top of the level. Two new Elemental Bubbles are also introduced: the Wind Bubble and the Ion Bubble. The Star Bubble from Parasol Stars also returns. New enemies appear as well, and some of them must be shot multiple times with bubbles in order to defeat them.
Bubble Bobble Part 2 features a new health system, in which Bub and Bob can collect hearts to refill their health. If they run out of hearts and are hit again, they lose a life. If Bub and Bob lose all their lives, they must use a Continue to move forward in the game. The player is given five continues, but can collect more by getting the Pencil item.
Bubble Bobble Part 2 does not feature simultaneous multiplayer, instead having the players taking turns. Despite this, if the game is cleared with Bob, Bubby still appears in the ending.
There are four main areas in Bubble Bobble Part 2, and two bosses in each. After each boss, Bub plays a minigame against a creature named Barcelon. The minigames are Volleyball, Basketball, and Gem Collection.
Bubby and his girlfriend Betty were relaxing by a tree, when two Willy Whistles commanded by the Green Skull Brother kidnap her and throw Bubby out of the way. Bubby transforms into Bub, and sets out with Bob to rescue Betty.
Bubble Bobble Part 2 only features one ending. On level 70, Bub and Bob must defeat the Green Skull Brother to rescue Betty. Then they go after the rest of the Skull Brothers to finish them off. After Bub and Bob defeat the Red Skull Brother's true form, Bub is met by a Fairy. The fairy casts a spell, which turns Bub back into Bubby. Betty then runs out, and and the two are reunited at last.
