Rebubbled (Bubble Struggle II)

RebubbledRebubbledDo you remember the popular Bubble Struggle (also know as Bubble Trouble) created in 2002 by the Croatian Krešimir Cvitanović. The good news is that the (very) long awaited sequel to this game was released in an alpha version two days ago!

Our little devil is back in Rebubbled, and once again, your goal here is to pop all the bubbles in a limited time to progress to the next level.

If the gameplay is close to the original game, the author put a lot of effort to improve this second version of Bubble Struggle: better graphics, smoother animations, tons of levels, tons of new power-ups (the flower and the freeze are my favorite ones), several bubble types, ladders, trampolines and more!

Use the arrow keys to move your character and press the spacebar to shoot the bubbles bouncing in the air.

Difficulty is well managed and increases gradually as you make progress through the game. Later levels are very difficult: fortunately, Rebubbled allows you to restart from the last level you played, so you won’t have to play the same level again and again.

As mentioned above, Rebubbled is not completely finished yet and some extra features should be added soon (sound, level editor and a 2 player mode).

That being said, the single player is very addictive and a lot of fun and we can easily say that Rebubbled is much better than the original.

Have fun!

Bubble Struggle

Categories: Arcade, Flash, Free, Games, Online   3 comments - August 14, 2006

Bubble StruggleBubble StruggleBubble Struggle (originally known as Bubble Trouble) is an arcade game developed in late 2002 by the Croatian Krešimir Cvitanović. Your character is a little devil that has to move back and forth avoiding and shooting bubbles that bounce all around the playfield.

Your goal is to pop all the bubbles in order to progress to the next level. To add more pressure, the author added a timer for every level, and you will have to clear the playfield before the time runs out or you will lose a life. Some bubbles contain power-ups such like weapon upgrades, shied, extra-time or extra-life. They can also contain some money for extra-points.

Use the left and right keys to move your character and press the spacebar to shoot the bubbles bouncing in the air. Note that there is an option to define your own controls if needed.

The author implemented a level code feature that is very useful for players who don’t want to replay any level more than once (except the first one) to finish the game, or for those who want to train themselves with later levels that are pretty difficult to complete.

With decent graphics and animations, a two player mode and 22 levels, Bubble Struggle is much more entertaining than Bubbles, a game featured in Free Games News mid-June. Overall, another true jewel that has been played so far nearly 16 million times!

Have fun!
