Description

XBubbles is simple logic game. The rules of this game are easy. Every turn five balls of eight different kinds appear on the game field at random. Each turn you can move one ball to any free position but ball can not jump over another one. Your task is to assemble five or more similar balls in a line in any direction. When you put the last ball in the line all balls in that line will disappear and you get a free turn. The score reflects your bonus, it’s calculated by a complex rule, taking in account number of turn’s you passed, number of extra balls in completed line and so on. When MacOSX was released I rewrote Bubbles in Cocoa and gave it a slightly different name: XBubbles. Any further development of Bubbles was discontinued. Your Bubbles registration code is valid for XBubbles.
