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.
