Bubble and Squeak is a Platform video game published for the Amiga in 1994 by Audiogenic Software. It was originally developed by Fox Williams under the name Barney & Clyde, and they ported it to the Sega Genesis for which it was published by Sunsoft under license from Audiogenic. The game is a childlike Sci-Fi fantasy platform game in which players control a little human boy named Bubble along with recent alien acquaintance Squeak. The Platform levels are separated by brief underwater scrolling shooter bonus segments.
The story takes place on the planet Grool, a planet inhabited by mostly short, anthropomorphous felines. The idyllic and mundane lifestyle of the feline aliens is interrupted when an alien invader known as Kat of Nine Tails kidnaps Grool's sentient populace, inadvertently leaving one of them, Squeak, behind. Shortly after, Squeak encounters a human boy known only as Bubble who agrees to rescue Squeak's captured populace.
Players controlled Bubble and at any time during gameplay could command Squeak to either 'follow' or 'wait' for him. Squeak, who was invulnerable to enemies and enemy fire, had his own AI and would help collect items or give Bubble a boost via piggy-back, letting Squeak toss him up to tall heights or by simply standing on top of Squeak's head. Among such items included gems, coins and a submersible icon which was necessary to play the shooter stages; some items could be picked up and carried to other locations such as springs and the only icons the player could pick up in the shooter stages were extra lives and Speed-ups. In both modes of gameplay, Bubble was equipped with unlimited ammunition, either stars or torpedoes.
