Oh Nooooooo - another riff on Frozen Bubble rears it's ugly head!!!!

Yes, that game concept is addictive. There's also a commercial program called Snood that works much the same way. It's a computer virus AFAIC. Except it infects the user. Most people lose a few hours the first time they play it.

FrozenBubble and its relatives have been banned from all my computers.

----

P.S. Gave it a try. Not bad at all! It introduces a few wrinkles of its own, which is always cool. But I really don't like how the endgame works in this one. It's sorta interminable. It's also way too easy to aim, and some of the physics on the bank shots behaved a little oddly IMO. At least they did on my machine. It is fun though. Took me three tries and 15 minutes I shouldn't have wasted to clear the board.

And now that I've tried it, I will do my best to not remember the link to it. Because that way madness lies. ;D

My just-turned 3 y/o son accidentally discovered these games and a whole stack more. I shall post them up here.
Some are really rather good, some are poorly-made, some are addictive.
I have to help him play a lot of them as he hasn't yet developed the knowledge or co-ordination to use the keyboard/mouse game controls properly.
He likes what he calls the "bamming" games where you shoot zombies or other monsters or enemy hordes with a gun or bow and arrows. Now when I chase after him pretending that I'm a cookie-eating monster and he's a cookie, he doesn't run away anymore, just points a finger at me and goes "BAM!" and I'm dead.
