Open Source Gaming Review: Frozen Bubble

Frozen Bubble is a pop-cap style game that puts the user into a world of colored balls, ice and penguins. While that might sound a bit silly, that's the whole point. The game works on the same principle as several very popular pop-cap style games such as "Dinosaur Eggs" and even the classic game "Puzzle Bobble" that started it all. The concept of Frozen Bubble is simple.

The screen is filled with colored balls that hang down from a gradually descending press plate. Your objective is to aim your igloo cannon at these balls and fire your own colored balls at them. If you match 3 in a row of the same color, any attached colored balls of the same color, or any below them, immediately fall. It's almost like playing connect three in reverse. Of course, if the balls that haven't fallen yet touch the igloo, it's game over.
