Linux has its own Puzzle Bobble clone!
Popping bubbles is fun. Match three bubbles of the same color, and *pop* watch them fall.
It seems every platform has some variation of this intriguing concept, and so does Linux with a game called Frozen-Bubble.
Frozen-bubble is available for free from the repository. In Linux Mint 18.2, open the Software Manager Games category, and search for bubble.
You can also install it from Synaptic. Search for frozen-bubble.
Frozen-bubble in incredibly simple, but enjoyable. Move the cannon left and right using the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard, and press the up arrow key to fire.
Full-screen mode did not work, but the game still played well from within a window. Gameplay was smooth and responsive. No issues encountered.
Need a quick distraction when using Linux? Try Frozen-Bubble, and have fun!
