Old silly game called Bubbleit

Post by Alex » Mon Mar 05, 2018 1:26 am

An oldie but addictive. Played this years ago. Was great for babysitting 6-10's. 20 odd years ago.
The coloured bubbles came in from the left, match 2 or more and click them, they would drop off the bottom giving points. New bubbles coming in to replace them.
Sounds easy, ye.
Did I say addictive?
My highest score was 16,400 and change.
Was real happy.. Until 7yo niece played.
18,000 + and laugh + again laugh + + laughter.. Oh she rubbed it in. :lol:
Stopped watching then.
Really should have gotten a copy of the free prog then. But alas.

Can't find any connection to it on the net atall now. Not even who wrote it.

Tis not a biggy. Just thinking it was more fun than card games.

If anyone has it, would be nice to know.
LOOK OUT!!!

It was on pc. I was running win98 back then.
was bubbleit though may be 2 words bubble it.
The trick to the game was to keep as many bubbles on the board as you can and to drop as many same coloureds that were touching at a time for higher points. Game is over when the board is full but there are no bubbles to drop. No 2 same coloured touching.
It was so addictive that a lot of offices had it banned from their machines.
But then it just disappeared.
