Game On Linux: Frozen Bubble

Frozen Bubble is a free software clone of Puzzle Bobble. The only difference is instead of using cute dragons as avatars, they use cute penguins. Penguins>dragons.

You job is to eliminate the colored balls from the playing area. Link three or more balls of the same color and they fall down. Every few shots, the ceiling of the playing arena will drop down, along with all the balls stuck to it.

Frozen Bubble contains 100 single player levels, completive 2p/3p/4p/5p multi-player over LAN or internet, a level-editor, 3 professional quality digital soundtracks and 15 stereo sound effects.

To install Frozen Bubble
in a terminal type:
sudo apt-get install frozen-bubble

Works great on the Dell Mini/Vostro, no special configuration needed. Be warned this game was so addictive it supposedly lead to a delay in Debian a few years back.

Have a question or problem that this article doesn't cover?
Ask our Ubuntu Mini 9 Google Group for help.
