Puzzle BobbleTaito Corp. released Bubble Bobble to the arcades in 1986 featuring two cute little dinosaurs named Bub and Bob. The bubble-blowing platform game was a huge hit and spawned several sequels. In 1994, looking to expand the successful franchise into puzzle games, Taito released Puzzle Bobble in Japan and Bust-a-Move in the U.S., thus creating a wildly successful and brand new class of action puzzle video games.

NiLS has created this Flash version of the classic puzzler and it looks and plays just like the original. Use the arrow keys to aim, and press the space bar to shoot. It's just that simple to play.

The object is to clear each board of bubbles by using the special bubble launcher. Shoot the colored bubbles to link 3 or more of the same color, thus eliminating them from play. The faster you clear the board the higher the bonus points awarded. Take too long and the play field inches ever closer to the launcher. If the bubbles reach the bottom line of the play field, the game ends.

The music is a bit repetitive, but otherwise the game plays great.

Dunno who was first, dont care, but this exists as a standard game in Mandrake Linux distributions called Frozen Bubble. The levels are exactly the same.

It's amazing how accurate a re-creation it is of the original arcade version I played many years ago.

Coloruid> starchild You've got yourself some sets of squares and they are all different colours. What you have to do is paint them so that they are monochrome in the end. Sounds easy? Then try doing it in a limited number of moves and while they're all shaking like crazy.  ...
Aveyond 4: Shadow of the Mist> Dora Boyle wanted to rule the world... but that didn't pan out so well, and three years later he's sulking in a town filled with other retired villains. But when a strange mist threatens the world (and his dog), he may have to become a hero... whether he likes it or not. A fabulously fun and cheeky indie RPG with plenty of humour and gameplay.  ...
