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.


its like bustamove i like it its fun


this looks and sounds and feels like something that nintendo would make. it just has that nintendo yoshi/kirby-like "cuteness" to it. does anyone agree? i think this is a good game.


[email protected], i dont even think you even played past the first level of frozen bubble. right when i got to the second level, i saw that they werent alike.

I was just wondering if there's any way of getting more credit lives or pausing the game?



Awesome. I remember playing this on the Snes. :D
But, I wish you could pause the game and also switch the sound off.


Hmmm, I'm getting a "server not found" error message....

[Thanks for the note. Link fixed. -Jay]
