So, here's a page of miscellaneous Bubble Symphony... Things.



First up, a little secret in the Japanese versions of the game (including the Sega Saturn port). You're allowed eight letters for your name on the high score table, but if you enter eight of the same character (AAAAAAAA, BBBBBBBB, etc.) then it will be replaced with a name that's actually supposed to be that of a different, randomly-selected Taito game. We did our best to find all of them, but since it's completely random- not determined by which letter/character you use for all eight spaces- there's no guarantee we've got the lot. If you know of any we're definitely missing, send us a screenshot at the usual address! We've arranged them in alphabetical order as they appear in Bubble Symphony, which is why you're going to say Space Invaders is in the wrong place but it isn't and we're only using the names used in Bubble Symphony (so it's Kaiser Knuckle instead of Global Champion, Mizubaku Daibouken instead of Liquid Kids, etc.) for consistency.

Next, related to the prototype version of the game, here's a full list of the stage names and how they compare to the final game. Couple of notes before we begin. First, two of these levels, Remember/Entrance Room and Barbecue, have very slightly different designs in the final game but they're mostly the same. Secondly, the boss stages are a little different as the specific layouts and enemy combinations are mostly unused in the final game. Also, they get proper stage titles in the prototype, not seen in the final version.
