Legendary bubble dragons Bub and Bob are back… in human form! In this critically acclaimed Taito classic, available for the first time on modern consoles, the now-transformed Bubby and Bobby embark on a quest to save their neighboring planets. But this time, instead of blowing bubbles, our favorite duo swing colorful parasols packed with magical powers. Use parasols as a shield against enemy projectiles or to stun, pick up, and launch enemies as if they were projectiles! Released in 1991 as the sequel to Rainbow Islands, Parasol Stars marks the third installment in Taito’s hit Bubble Bobble action-platformer series and it hasn’t lost any of its colorful charm over the years. High score chasers can rejoice because, just like in the bubble-filled predecessor, the slick gameplay will quickly fill levels with sweet and fruity collectibles that can be collected to climb the leaderboard. Search for a variety of items that will grant you all kinds of special powers, from bouncing energy balls to screen-clearing magic. Play solo or bring a friend and take on the challenging levels together! Much like using enemies as projectiles, launching your friend at enemies can be a good strategy. But be careful, as you'll not only stun the enemy you hit, but your friend turned projectile as well. In 2-player co-op mode, tactical teamwork is key to beating levels and getting the highest scores. Parasol Stars is a retro gem brought back for modern consoles, whose bright, beautifully designed worlds will draw you in, and its simple yet addictive 1-2 player gameplay will have you coming back again and again to reach the top of the leaderboard.
