    Wow! Is Bubble really riding Squeak gripping his jowls like a horses' reins? Haha, we tricked you! Now you're stuck with this cutesy platformer! Take that game-buying public.

    I was sure this box art was only used for the CD32 release, but no, I've just checked and all three versions are the same.

    Ah, it's the Mega Drive version I was thinking of (http://segaretro.org/Bubble_and_Squeak). Even here Bubble looks a bit too malevolent for comfort, though a big improvement over what we got!

    I never really understood the attraction of this babysitting mechanic. It's like playing football wearing a ball and chain. I've never tried that personally, but I'd hazard a guess it's a bit of an encumbrance.
