Bubbler is a ZX Spectrum video game developed and published by Ultimate Play the Game in 1987. It was Ultimate's final title for 8-bit home computers before evolving into Rare. The game is an isometric platform game in the style of Marble Madness (1984).[1] Development of a Commodore 64 version was outsourced to Lynsoft but the release was cancelled as Ultimate thought the game was running too slowly.[2]

Reception[edit]

Crash magazine reviewer Ricky disliked the impreciseness of the controls.[3] Sinclair User were more impressed by the game; they did not consider it to be one of Ultimate's most original game or particularly well presented but thought it was very addictive. It was awarded a 5 star rating.[4]
