About TouHou Spell Bubble:
Touhou Spell Bubble mixes Puzzle Bobble’s iconic game design with the much-loved Touhou Project’s world and characters and adds a rhythmic element to the game play, enhanced by a lineup of 40 voice actors and illustrators. The game comes with 50 music tracks, including 12 exclusive songs, and over 100 tracks currently available via DLC.

In the land known as Gensokyo, where humans live together with creatures from Japanese folklore sealed away from the outside world, a new form of entertainment has taken root. Coloured balls, infused with magic, are projected at each other and vanish when their colours match. The game is Spell Bubble, and its popularity has grown until to the point where a grand tournament is due to be held, but all is not as it seems and it’s down to Reimu to investigate!

  • Puzzle & rhythm fused by magic – A simple to control puzzle game with an added layer of rhythm-action to produce a whole new experience.
  • 1-2 local or online versus play
  • Story mode – Travel the land of Gensokyo, battle its inhabitants and find out who is behind the Spell Bubble tournament.
  • Ranked and Private matches

  • Challenge Mode – Battle against a series of characters of designated difficulty and A faithful port of the classic Bubble Bobble for 1-2 players, with scanlines and screen ratio options for a truly authentic arcade experience.
  • 50 music tracks from Touhou favourites

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
