Revision of Frozen-Bubble - A Ridiculously Addictive Puzzle Game from Sat, 02/23/2008 - 00:45


Frozen-Bubble has blissfully stolen hours and hours of my life with its addictive gameplay and flippin' awesome soundtrack. It's an easy game with a simple premise: shoot colors bubbles onto the game board in an attempt to match up three or more similarly colored bubbles. Doing so will cause them to fall from the board, taking connected bubbles with them. If you clear all of the bubbles, you move on to the next level. If the bubbles pile up and cover the entire screen, you lose the game and restart the entire level.

Because my description is probably dense and hard to grasp, here's a video. By the way, no one gets to make fun of my mad Frozen-Bubble skillz.

The developer website lists the features well:

Colorful 3D rendered penguin animations, 100 levels of 1p game, hours and hours of 2p game, nights and nights of 2p/3p/4p/5p game over LAN or Internet, a level-editor, 3 professional quality digital soundtracks, 15 stereo sound effects, 8 unique graphical transition effects, 8 unique logo eye-candies.

Let me emphasize again: the soundtrack is amazing. It sounds really, really good. And the multiplayer is a lot of fun, especially over the LAN.

Install frozen-bubble using Synaptic, the Add/Remove... dialog, or by typing the following into the Terminal:

sudo apt-get install frozen-bubble
