Are you ready to take on the bubbling challenges of Bob? Control Bob as he collects blue bubbles, all the while dodging the dangerous red bubbles and occasional bombs. You'll need nimble fingers and quick reflexes to make it to the top in this action packed game. But don't worry, learning the game will only take a minute or two. Mastering it, however, will take hours upon hours of practice.
The game has two modes of timed gameplay: a three minute game and a minute-and-a-half game making it perfect for playing while you're commuting, standing in a line or just looking for a moment of great entertainment. What's even better is that Bob the Bubble uses OpenFeint so you can earn achievements and compete against high scores globally and also in your local area. Both game modes have separate leaderboards and achievements so you can earn double the Feint Points if you master both modes!
* Open Feint achievements and leaderboards
* Colorful cartoon graphics
* Awesome soundtrack
* Easy-to-pick-up gameplay
* Two timed game modes
We started as a group of childhood friends interested in reading comics and playing games. Over time, video games have gotten increasingly violent and, quite bluntly, lack much of the creative spirit that once drove gaming. Our goal is to come up with fresh and interesting ideas and we strive to make games that are fun and challenging for everybody. Some of us also have little children and we believe it is important to act in a responsible way. We believe games have great potential to entertain, teach and tell stories and we want to show that it is possible to reach the potential. We are still learning, but we will get there!
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later (iOS 4.0 Tested)
* 13.9 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Bob the Bubble 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
Most people ask why the company name "Fifty Sixty Software?" The story behind the name is a phrase from the once great Finnish ski jumper Matti Nykanen when pondering about his chances: "the chances are fifty-sixty." We take this to mean a win-win situation as we get to work on doing things we love, and we believe the people who buy our software get a great experience. Copyright (C) 2010 Fifty Sixty Software.
