Key points

Compilation of Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands, with a new DOS port of Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands receiving an official DOS port.
Both games featured in the collection are not exactly arcade-accurate ports like they claim to be, leading to minor inaccuracies in Bubble Bobble, and the secret islands missing entirely in Rainbow Islands.
The music in Rainbow Islands is altered due to licensing issues.
