HG 101 Forum Thread on Obscure Arcade Secrets

Today’s find somehow doesn’t involve a Youtube video! On the forums for Hardcore Gaming 101 there’s a thread, inspired by the lengths players must go through to reach the true ending of Bubble Bobble, about arcade games with super obscure secrets. I don’t even think I know what they’re talking about with the Rainbow Islands secret, involving playing through the game seven times doing a minor thing different each time. It sounds like a bit of a money sink to me, but this was the era of Tower of Druaga after all. The thread is here.

If you don’t know about the absurd secrets in Bubble Bobble, the best guide I know of to those is still the Bubble Bubble Info Pages, last changed in 1998 but still on the web after all these years!
