Your goal is to clear all the bubbles from the board, scoring as many points as possible. You shoot at them with more bubbles, and when three or more of the same color come together, they all explode. Point your mouse to where you want the next bubble to go (the arrow at the bottom will indicate that direction), and click to fire the shot.
The more bubbles blow up at one shot, the increasingly more points you gain (six ones at one shot is better than two three-bubble shots). Besides, those bubbles that fell apart from the rest will explode too. It is well worth trying to arrange such avalanches, as they will give you ten times more points than ordinary bursts.
If your shot fails to detonate any bubbles, you get a foul, and when there are several fouls, a new line of bubbles appears at the top. The number of misfires allowed before bubbles will advance again, is shown in the bottom left corner.
Various skill levels differ by the number of shots that you are allowed to fire without success.
There can be no draw in this game, either you clean all the bubbles off, or they move all the way down on you.
It includes four great game modes, Arcade - for people who like quick action, Strategy - the classic mode, Sniper - if you are a good shooter and Marathon - mode with endless levels.
There are other improvements, your photo in the TOP10, 3D explosions, smooth flying of the bubbles - download and try this new release.
