    Pop'n Pop © 1998 Taito.

    Pop'n Pop is a puzzle game using balloons. This is not only a puzzle game blended with a shooting invaders style game.

    Move the player character with the joystick and change the position and release the balloons upwards using the 2 push buttons. Line up 3 or more of the same color balloons to pop them and clear the round by bursting all the balloons.
    Many bosses appear using a variety of tricks to impede your progress.

    There are 3 game modes.
    • Puzzle Mode: Play by yourself or with another person to challenge the computer.
    • VS CPU Mode: Play against the computer by yourself.
    • 2 Player VS Mode: Play against your opponent with your selected characters.

    TECHNICAL
    Runs on the "Taito F3 System" Hardware.

    Prom Stickers: E51

    Players: 4
    Control: 8-way joystick
    Buttons: 4

    TRIVIA
    Pop'n Pop was developed by Dreams for Taito and released in February 1998 (even if the titlescreen says 1997).

    All the characters in Pop'n Pop were selected from previous Taito games. Bubby&Bobby from Rainbow Islands, Sayo&Miki from Kiki-KaiKai, Bob&Jim from Don-Doko-Don, and Tiki&PyuPyu from New Zealand Story.

    The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'AAA'.

    UPDATES
    The US version has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
