Screenshot from 'Frozen Bubble' "Frozen Bubble" is a simple but highly addictive game involving knocking down clusters of frozen bubbles. The bubbles come in several colours, and strategy involves getting as many bubbles down as possible with each shot.

There is no violence, horror or innuendo anywhere, and you can make new levels with a simple text editor (like vi or Notepad).

Logo for 'Frozen Bubble' The game is Open Source (GPL) and is written entirely in PERL, so you can inspect it, learn from it and change it if you wish.

The author works for Mandrake Linux, and others are interested in porting “Frozen Bubble” to other Unices like FreeBSD, and also Mac OS/X and Windows.

The game can be easily installed by hand from source (./configure; make install) or packages are provided for several of the common Linux variants.

Year of Release—2002
