The Bubbline, known as the Bubbler in the Aeon Genesis translation (バブリン Baburin), is a semi-hidden weapon obtained in the Mimiga Village's Assembly Hall. It is the first obtainable weapon that can continually fire when the shoot key is pressed and held.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The Bubbline's inventory icon shows three bubbles, each a different size. The original sprites have white bubbles with a blue outline. The remastered mostly has transparent bubbles, the bottom which is completely blue.
The original gun sprite is completely blue with a dark vertical stripe near the pointed end. The remastered is mostly light green with a blue base. There is a dark horizontal stripe at the top of the green component near the handle.
Location[edit | edit source]
This weapon may be obtained at any point of the game as long as Quote has access to Bushlands.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
As the name suggests, the Bubbline shoots bubbles. Once equipped, it has a limited ammunition of one hundred bubbles which regenerates automatically when the Bubbline is not in use. The bubbles regenerate more quickly with each level up.
Although the weapon starts as a manually firing gun, its shooting becomes automatic in its level 2 form. At level 3, the projectiles orbit around Quote as long as the Fire button is pressed. This ability provides somewhat of a shield from enemies and destructible projectiles. Only fourteen bubbles can orbit Quote at a time; after the fifteenth bubble is fired, the oldest bubble will "pop" into a jagged white projectile, and fire itself in the direction the player is facing. When the Fire button is released, all bubbles on-screen will "pop" and launch simultaneously.
