In Baron's Tower, which appears in Story Mode, players can enjoy so-called a survival mode in which they must erase a constant stream of bubbles.
This can be played by one to four players, competing for high scores with other players around in the online rankings.
The rankings are split into three difficulty levels and by number of players.
VS MODE LOCAL PLAY
This is a mode in which players can play against the computer or other players.
Players can send bubbles to their opponent's side by sticking three or more bubbles of the same color to each other and gradually erasing the approaching bubbles, or by erasing or dropping off a large number of bubbles at once.
In addition to 1 vs 1 competition, players can also enjoy 2 vs 2 cooperative matches; a series first! In which teams of two players can play together.
1 VS 1
2 VS 2

PUZZLE BOBBLE VS SPACE INVADERS
To celebrate Space Invaders' 45th anniversary, we're announcing a new game featuring a collaboration between Space Invaders and Puzzle Bobble.
In this mode, players try to erase the bubble-encapsulated invaders by sticking three or more bubbles of the same color together.
Bubbles can only be fired straight up, so players move their characters left and right to aim and defeat the incoming invaders while dodging their attacks.
Up to four players can play cooperatively.
Here you can check the characters and costumes unlocked in Story Mode and learn more about them via their profiles. You can also collect and listen to music from the stages.
