Play Bursting Bubbles for delightful puzzle game
entertainment and fun. There are two very different modes of play, Frantic
and Puzzle Mode.
With Frantic Mode, it is a battle against the
clock in a all out race to rearrange the bubbles into groups and pop them
off the screen before the bubble meter boils over. Sounds silly but this
mode will have on the edge of your seat!
Puzzle Mode is more of a relaxing adventure in
bubble popping. Here it is strategy and skill that will prevail instead of
nerves and quick reactions like in Frantic Mode.
Rearrange bubbles and pop them off the screen.
Each pop drives the bubble meter lower, but watch out, waste your popping
on small groups and suddenly your surrounded by unmovable and unpopable (is
that a word?) shiny black bubbles that will leave you racking your brain
in an effort to manipulate them away from your precious bubbles.
Great entertainment for the whole family and maddeningly addictive!
BURST GROUPS OF LIKE-COLORED BUBBLES
You can burst groups of three or more bubbles. You get exponentially more points from bursting larger groups of bubbles. You can get large
groups by rearranging the bubbles. Large groups are especially important in
REARRANGE THE COLORS INTO GROUPS
To move a bubble just left click on the bubble and left click again where you want to move it. A faster way to move them is to hold the left mouse
button down and nudge the mouse in the direction you want to move the bubble.
WHY WON'T A BUBBLE STAY MOVED?
For the bubble to stay moved, one of the two bubbles moving must touch a group of at least two other bubbles of the same color, thus forming a group
of 3 or more like-colored bubbles. If they do not, they will move back to
their original locations.
TWO WAYS TO BURST BUBBLES
To burst the bubbles, right click or double left click on one of the bubbles
in the group you want to burst. You need a grouping of 3 or more bubbles to
make them pop.
SPECIAL TYPES OF BUBBLES
FROZEN BUBBLE - pops an entire row
BEACHBALL - pops all adjoining bubbles
FOAM - pops all bubbles its own color
RAINBOW - matches with any color, easy to move
BLACK BUBBLE - cannot be moved, listen for 'uh-oh' every time you get a new one
CHAMELIAN - changes color
completing a level
Pop enough bubbles to reduce the bubblemeter to zero and move on to the next
level. If the bubblemeter boils to the top, the game is over.
GETTING A GOOD SCORE
The larger the group of bubbles you pop at once, the (exponentially) more points
you get for popping them and the more the bubble meter moves. As an example,
popping a single set of six bubbles is worth twice as much as two sets of three
bubbles. You also get more points the higher the level.
FRANTIC VS. PUZZLE MODE
In frantic mode, the bubblemeter increases as time goes by. In puzzle mode you get more obstacles, but no time limit. Popping a group of
only 3 bubbles will not move the meter much in puzzle mode.
USING THE PANIC BUTTON
You start with three panic button credits. Each completed bonus level gives
you 1 to 3 new ones, the higher the level the greater the number. Clicking
on the panic button eliminates 13 black bubbles, however in puzzle mode it
only eliminates black bubbles if you are stuck, otherwise it will do a move
