So, we've entered "Super Bubble Bobble" mode and played until the end, and still we get this:

I read something about having to enter a gate every 20 stages and collect the letters of the word "RAINBOW!". Is this how to get the true ending, and did anybody here manage that?

Yeah, this is something I always wondered about myself. If I'm not mistaken the English manual also states that you need a rainbow item to get the true ending or something along those lines. I did get the bottle item which produces rainbows all over the screen just once while playing super bubble bobble mode and still when I beat the game I got this ending. I have gotten almost all items which are listed in the English manual but never a true ending.

It's even possible to get a warp in level 95 (rare instance) which will warp you past level 100 but then the game sort of gets stuck. Never saw the Japanese manual; maybe there is some hint in that?

I have the Japanese manual, but couldn't find anything about it in there.
Apparently, you should enter the gates that appear in rounds 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 99. There, you'll have to gather all of the diamonds to get one letter of the keyword. I suspect you must collect all of the letters to get the true ending, and I have a feeling that you're also required to play in 2-player mode.

Your post made me go back and check it out and write down the secret messages they gave (I left out the spells because everyone probably already knew about those):

Normal mode (messages below are what it says in the game, regardless of it being proper English):
20: Bobby Im Betty. I talk you secret!
30: Bubby.Decode upper spell.
40: Use spell in game mode select.
60: Superdrunk dont like thunder..
70: Bubby.Take back your truefigure!
80: Help hech other untill the last.
90: You most get drug of rainbow.
99: Friendship is important in last!
100: For get power of rainbow.

The message in level 99 indeed implies you have to have 2 players when beating the boss like you said. The message after beating the boss indicates that the "spell" ULDLDUUL gives you the power of rainbow.

Super Bubble Bobble mode:
20: First keyword...R
30: Second keyword...A
40: Third keyword...I
60: Fourth keyword...N
70: Fifth keyword...B
80: Sixth keyword...O
90: Seventh keyword...W
99: Eighth keyword...!

To trigger warps or gates in any of the levels you mustn't die in the 10 levels before the level it is in. If you use a "spell" to start in a higher level (let's say 23), then it suffices not to die from level 23 until level 30 to trigger it. Another way to trigger it is to die in one of those levels (e.g. level 40) and then continue.

I wasn't trying to beat the game, just to write down those special messages for some clue I missed in the past so I cheated but in doing so I got the true ending (unfortunately). It appears you can use the "spell" to start in level 85 and just get the gate in level 90 and 99. If you beat the game with player 2 also on screen you get the proper ending.

Probably during normal play they encourage you to get the other gates by warping you to a spot from where you can try again. I don't know if you "retain" gates you've already gotten in the first time around when you get "zapped" to some level. And can't tell you if continuing means that you lost those gates you've gotten or not.

How do you enable the "Super Bubble Bobble" mode?

In the 1 player or 2 player select screen enter the following sequence with the cursors or joystick: ULDLDUUL
In each of the bonus levels you get a hint at (see three posts above this one) there is one of these sequences you can enter to either get special powers, start at a later level or something similar.

In the above messages I never see an actual spell, nor that you have to press it with cursor keys... did I miss something?

ULDLDUUL (sequence to activate the super bubble bobble mode): stands for UP LEFT DOWN LEFT DOWN UP UP LEFT. All of the sequences are displayed in the game as such. The other one I know by heart is RURDRURD (Only works after you have activated super bubble bobble mode): This gives you shoes to walk fast and all three different types of candy for improved bubble shooting. I thought those sequences were general knowledge, but if people do want them I can look them up in a file. I referred to those sequences as a "spell" in that earlier post.

Well, submit a newspost *hinthint*, preferably already with clear cut text, so one of the site maintainers can easily post it. It increases the speed by a factor 1000, trust me on that. Extra bonus 1000 upon that when relevant pictures or video links are provided.
