Bubble Trouble is a homage to Frozen Bubble and Puzzle Bobble.
Frozen Bubble got me though some long lectures in college so I thought it would be a perfect game for PICO-8. Now it can get me though some long meetings instead.


  • 20 hand-crafted levels
  • Randomly generated levels
  • Precision aiming
  • One-Handed mode (on the pause menu)
  • Bubbles
  • A penguin with a bubble cannon
  • Epic sprite rotation
  • Music that loops (but not every 6 seconds)
  • Explosions

I hope you enjoy!

That feeling when you try to angle a rebound to get into a specific spot and it goes exactly there! Great recreation

@kallanreed, The game looks very polished. It's still having the same situation where you are given a color that does not match the board.

Remember I mentioned this in your early release ?

Here you have a yellow bubble and no yellow bubbles above. Bust-A-Move and clones would not permit this and instead change to the next colored bubble that does appear in the board above. Otherwise you just lose a move by shooting a color that does not at all appear above.

@dw817 I actually decided to leave it like that. You can see the next ball so you have to plan accordingly. You won’t get a next ball that isn’t on the board.

Thanks for the game! One problem that I have is that it's difficult to tell red bubbles apart from slightly different red (possibly green?) ones. But I may be slightly colourblind :)

Nice game I like how there is different levels!

One of my favorite kind of puzzle games, along with the above mentions I also know this as Puzzle de Pon, which is my favorite iteration. Did a great job, RNG didn't seem too bad, and the above "next" issues are in the OG games I've played. I think I overflowed the score, though, hahaha.

@Pepperly, I think you won the game! I'm always amazed at how bad I am at games.
