Astraware has continued to release many games over the past year, and it is pleasing to see so many releases still appearing for Palm OS month after month. Bubble Babble is initially available for Palm OS and Windows Mobile, with more platforms expected in the future.

Seeing the screenshots of Bubble Babble gave an impression of a classic Astraware puzzle style title and I was not disappointed when I first played it. Firstly, it runs perfectly on my 320×320 screened Samsung i780 and the tutorial is not only cute, but very useful. After a few minutes I was linking letters, splitting words and desperately moving letters around the screen with my stylus. Think of this as upside down Tetris with words and you will get a rough idea of what I am talking about.

The idea is to make as many words as possible and once you have made a word you need to drag it to the top of the screen to make it count. Dragging a word you have made in error to the bottom will split it and you can start the word again. While doing this, you have to try to stop the letters floating to the top and being lost. It is an interesting mix of word skill and frantic playability that is surprisingly addictive. On my first test play I was sat there for over 45 minutes which is a first for me.

There are four styles of play which are Challenge, Target, Mystery and Freeplay. Each offers a good variety of play and the Freeplay mode somewhat reminds me of Bejeweled in that you can in theory play the game forever. I like the variety, but personally I favoured Challenge over the others.

The graphics are very cute and you can even collect shells of varying types to add to your collection. This made seem a bit too cute for some, but I have always liked games that offer an extra target and this adds to the overall immersive environment.

It is hard to write a lot about Bubble Babble because the rules are very simple, but consider this a positive. Just like Bejeweled, it is simple to learn but quite taxing on the brain as you progress through each level. I’m not saying that this is a classic, but it is indeed an addictive puzzler of the highest order. Everything about it screams ‘Astraware’ and who knows; it could become a classic to sit alongside Bejeweled and Text Twist.

Bubble Babble is well worth the asking price and it has already become a hit in my family. My wife loves it, my 8 year old son has also been playing it (I can see it helping his spelling) and my 4 year old daughter just giggles at the cute colours and graphics. What more could you want from one game?

Bubble Babble will be available from www.astraware.com within the next 48 hours. Try it!
