The game became popular and led to a series of sequels. The main goal of the game is to rescue Bub and Bobs girlfriends from the Cave of Monsters and it is an early example of an action game with multiple endings, which depend on the players performance and discovery of secrets. In the games plot, Baron Von Blubba has kidnapped the brothers Bubby and Bobbys girlfriends and turned the brothers into Bubble Dragons, Bub, Bub and Bob have to finish 100 levels in the Cave of Monsters in order to rescue them.

Each level is limited to a screen, with no scrolling, however, if a screen has gaps in its bottom edge, players can fall through these. Each level has a number of enemies that must be defeated in order to advance. The players must blow bubbles to trap the enemies, then burst these bubbles by colliding with them, each enemy defeated in this manner turns into a food item that can be picked up for extra points. Defeating multiple enemies at once awards higher scores and causes more valuable items to appear. All bubbles will float for a length of time before bursting on their own, players can jump on these. Magic items appear from time to time and grant special abilities and advantages when picked up, special bubbles occasionally appear that can be burst to attack enemies with fire, water, or lightning. Furthermore, if a player collects letter bubbles to form the word EXTEND, he/she earns a bonus life, a player loses one life upon touching any free enemies or their projectiles. Enemies turn angry—turning pink in color and moving faster—if they escape from a bubble after being too long or the players spend a certain amount of time on the current level. They return to normal if either player loses a life, after a further time limit expires, an additional invincible enemy appears for each player, actively chasing them using only vertical and horizontal movements. These disappear once the level is cleared, or when a player loses a life, when there is only one enemy left, it immediately becomes angry and remains in this state until defeated.
