Game Details

Very strange - wave ends when the plug is pulled and you are washed away - Only a big healthy bubble will survive!

Oddly enough, similar in play and control to Gottlieb's Reactor.

  • Published for PC, Saturn, and PlayStation (USA) by Williams/Midway in Arcade's Greatest Hits/Williams Greatest Hits.
From Don Morlan, 1985 Guiness Book of World Record holder for original Joust:

Early version exists with attract mode featuring no large bubble knocking the sponge or brush into the sink for 2000 points that was present in later versions. In game play, brushes or sponges can NEVER be knocked down the drain on this early version. Also, the early version has grey 2x signs near the drain instead of red 2x signs and the point values for the cleaning lady are also grey instead of yellow orange. With the loss of points from not being able to knock things into the drain for 2000 points, this early version is extremely challenging.

Bubbles games had the Sinistar-esque 49-way optical joystick, not an 8-way joystick.
