Pop n' pop is a single/multiplayer puzzle game released by UK publisher Vektorlogic for Windows in 2000. This is an officially licensed port by Taito, apparently it's a cross of original arcade version and PlayStation version.
The game plays similarly to Puzzle Bobble (Bust a move in the USA): burst all the bubbles by matching 3 of the same kind but the balloons can be thrown vertically only and the targets to shoot at move left to right and vice versa. Available options include:
- Story Mode (1 Player with advancing difficulty)
- 1 Player vs Computer
- Player vs Player
- Challenge Mode (Test yourself on your skill)
- Pentium 133 or greater
- 16 MB of RAM
- Windows 95/98/NT 4.0
- Soundblaster Compatible Sound Card
- 16 Bit VGA Graphics Card or Better
- 100 MB of HD Space Available
The game is considered extremely rare (most probably due to low production numbers and/or bad sales) and despite being listed on Amazon UK, the official publisher page disappeared long ago and it couldn'tt be bought commercially or downloaded online until November 25th, 2017, when user Tatsumi uploaded the game onto Zippyshare.
