Day 10 : Bubble Bobble on C64 (1987)

by on Mar.21, 2010, under lutris

At last! I think we’re finished with the boring games and we can start playing some awesome stuff !

Today’s game is Bubble Bobble by Taito. It was one of my first games on the Amiga many years ago but here we’re going to play it on the C64. (I’ve never seen a real C64 in my life, that’s a shame.)

The emulator of choice for old Commodore machines is vice, it’s maintained, it’s in the Ubuntu repos, nothing wring there. You can get the roms here, just extract them to ~/.vice , you should have a file named ~/.vice/C64/kernal.  Kernal ?! WTF ! Well, it’s an actual mispelling of Kernel, you can read about it on Wikipedia.

Everything else is pretty straightforward, new runner for vice, with the usual options. Don’t forget to make use of the new resolution option as vice doesn’t deal with resolution switching by himself.
