Cult Video Game Essentials: Clu Clu Land (1984)

Clu Clu Land is an arcade and Nintendo Entertainment System game released in 1984 in Japan, later released in North America in 1985 as a Nintendo Entertainment System launch title, and in Europe in 1987. It was released for the Wii Virtual Console in North America in 2008 and in Europe and Japan in 2009, for the Nintendo 3DSVirtual Console in Japan in 2013 and in North America and Europe in 2014, and for the Wii U Virtual Console in 2013.

In Clu Clu Land, the player is a bubble fish named Bubbles who swims around in a maze trying to uncover all the golden Ingots.

Clu Clu Land ’​s story starts with a type of sea urchin, the Unira, stealing all of the treasures in the underwater kingdom of Clu Clu Land. Bubbles, the hero, sets out to retrieve the treasure. The object of the game is to uncover all the gold bars called Ingots in each stage while avoiding the Unira and Black Holes. Ingots usually form a shape such as a heart or a mushroom. The only way Bubbles can turn around to change directions is by means of Turning Posts located throughout the stages. Bubbles can stun the Unira by using a Sound Wave. When they are stunned, Bubbles can push them into a wall to get rid of them and receive points. If Bubbles is hurt by the Unira, she will lose a life. A life is also lost when Bubbles falls into a Black Hole, or when time runs out. The game ends if Bubbles has lost all her lives.

In later levels, the player must pass over the Ingots twice to uncover them, and passing over them in later levels will re-bury them.
