It wouldn't be a week without a romhacking mention and sure enough here is ' Sailor Moon Super S: Floating Panic ' also known as Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Super S: Fuwa Fuwa Panic, that was recently translated into full English for the SNES by Dynamic-Designs. This colourful game is a Sailor Moon themed competitive puzzle style game originally released in Japan way back in December 1995 and published by Bandai!
You could almost call this game a Puzzle Bubble clone except with Sailor Moon characters and extremely girlish overtones. In each of the set stages you have to pop all the balloons before they reach the bottom to win the round. By popping balloons of the same colour adjacent to each other, you'll get more points.
Another additional part to the game is power ups which can appear when popping certain balloons! So yes lots of balloon popping involved which is pretty much the core part of the game, but if you'd like to more it would be well worth checking out the romhacking write up, as this game is way too cute for me!
