Holly really had you in a corner climbing the final section there. Sometimes she totally spams with her bullets and floatly things that surround her and other times you can just easily climb up.

I attempted inviting a second player into the game at the last moment as well and got no joy. I've noticed the green comets on a couple of levels but I doubt they would change anything in the final outcome. I'm beginning to think Taito just screwed up big time on the ending of this game. Talking of the 2 players while it's fun to play you totally have to be in tandum since if 1 player is left behind and the bottom of the screen catches you up you loose 30 seconds. I think a speed run/building up of time would be really tricky.

I think Taito should have offered some extra downloadable areas like with Bubble Bobble Plus or fix the ending. Is there an email address we can all complain to?

P.S- Holly is a TTT (Total Tower Tease) and I'm doing TGI' Fridays on 4th July in Birmingham-wanna join me for cocktails and bitchin'?

Yeah, it really did suck getting cornered like that. I thought I had a system because the last time I climbed right up that section without getting hit. But those satellite things really suck. My housemate certainly provided some interesting commentary - I think his whining made the video a little better actually.

I'm with you on thinking that Square Enix / Taito probably just blew it on the ending. Something really doesn't feel right about it though. It would be nice to get some clarification straight from the horse/s.

While I'm okay with the fact that they went with developing an all new game that is nothing like the original, but they really just missed a lot of the spirit of the original. I was watching some video of the original arcade version via MAME on YouTube, and it really makes you realize how different Towering Adventure is. I'd really like to see the arcade version pop up on WiiWare for sure, but I doubt that will happen.

Thanks for the invite for the fourth, but I can't join you in Birmingham this year - although I should be in the UK sometime in 2010!

@Gentleben: thanks. I just ran through the game. Beat the robot with 1041sec left, made it to the top with 293sec. I even brought in player 2 at the last second, thinking the game would want 2 players to get some sort of acceptable ending (it is a Bubble Bobble game after all) ... but she just kills you both.

Oh yeah - and I filmed it:

Hoping someone can figure out this whole 'ending' situation, because that was really lame.

If Gentleben got the gems in order and confirmed that didn't do anything different, the only thing I can think of in the game I missed were those green comets that appear on a couple of the levels. I doubt hitting them would do anything different though.

That's weird about the ending.

Has anyone tried attacking Holly? I haven't.

Another question: what is the actual height of the tower?

(I didn't even know about the rainbow jump function until I read this thread, and I managed to get to 7665m without it. I imagine the tower is 8000m, so with a level 7 rainbow jump that should about do it.)
