A blatant ripoff of Buster Bros. by Capcom which takes you through 50 levels of

        STORY
o---------------------o

This is a clone of Buster Bros from Capcom. You play as a little boy who shoots
bubbles to clear them from the stage. They're supposed to be balloons but they
are bubbles trust me.

o---------------------o
       CONTROLS
o---------------------o

D-pad: move left or right
A or B button: shoot
Start: pause

o---------------------o
     GENERAL INFO
o---------------------o

Each round starts with a giant bubble that bounces around and functions like a
bouncy ball in which each bounce will cause it to lose it maximum height and
eventually it will roll around the ground. When that happens, you are screwed
"with a capital F if you know what I mean."

You can only shoot upwards.

The balls will split in three ways. First there is the giant bubble that splits
into four medium sized bubble. When one is shot, it becomes 4 smaller bubbles.
Once a small bubble is shot, it is gone.

You start with 6 lives. Once they are gone, then game over.

You gain an extra life for clearing a level. Can have no more than 20 lives.

The hit detection is severely off. If one bubble even gets very close to you
without touching, you'll still die.
