Puff and Blow each have a Methane Gas Gun which fires a cloud
of immobilising gas. If this comes into contact with a bad guy
he will be absorbed into the gas and then float around the screen
for a limited time. Bad guys are harmless in this state.
Puff and Blow must suck the floating gas clouds into their guns
and blast them out against a vertical surface. Bad guys then turn
into bonuses which can be  collected. Be warned! - the gas cloud
dissolves with time after which baddies become active again and
extremely annoyed.
Super Methane Brothers is a platform game converted from the Amiga by
its original author. It is very similar to the Taito game Bubble
