Drunk's Castle (ドランクじょう Doranku-jō?) is a recurring location in the Bubble Bobble series. It is a castle belonging to Drunk, and serves as his base of operations in numerous games.

Description[]

The depiction of Drunk's Castle varies between games, though it is generally depicted as a gothic-style castle surrounded by darkness. In Puzzle Bobble 2, the castle is shaped like the Mechanical Prototype Bubblen, and is situated atop a large mountain that is adjacent to Icewall and surrounded by pointed crystalline peaks.

Bust-A-Move Millennium gives a slightly more traditional take on the castle, with it no longer bearing a unique shape and resembling classic depictions of castles in various media. The castle is shown to be situated on a hill in this title, and is only seen at night.

Bubble Bobble Revolution features yet another design for the castle, with it now bearing a giant statue of Drunk adorned on the walls at the front of the castle, with numerous other statues themed after the game's enemies stationed next to it. The castle now has many towers with pointed roofs grouped together at the top of the castle, and is protected by an ornate gate. Drunk's Guard, the ninth world of the game, takes place in front of the castle.

The castle one again receives a different design in Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, now depicted as a large toy castle due to the game's toy-based theming. The castle is now a white color, and has purple spires adorning the castle's various towers, and toy rose bushes placed along the castle walls. Drunk's throne room serves as the location for the final battle, with a large red throne being visible in the background of the stage.

Bust-A-Move Millennium[]
