By Michael HartleyMath frozen bubble is a bubble shooting game with a difference. It is based on the Java Version of Frozen Bubble, which is an ordinary (but great fun) bubble shooting game. However, Math Frozen Bubble is designed to also test your arithmetic skills! Read on, or scroll down to play.
That's right, mom and dad! Show your kids this game, and they'll practice their addition and their times tables for hours, all the while having great fun with the bright colors and zappy sound effects!
In Frozen bubble, the player shoots different colored bubbles at a rack of bubbles at thetop of the screen. If there are three or more bubbles the same color together, they will pop. The aim of the game is to clear the screen. Just like any other bubble puzzle game (or what do you call them? bubble breaker games? bubble buster? bubble trouble? whatever!)
When you play Math Frozen Bubble, you'll see that each bubble has a number on it! When you form a group of bubbles whose colors match, well...
- On level one, the bubbles pop, as per normal.
- On level two, the game looks at the numbers on the bubbles, and adds them up. If the sum is an even number (say 2, 4, 6, 8 or so on), the bubbles all pop. Otherwise, you have to keep shooting!
- On level three, the sum must be a multiple of three (say 3 or 6 or 9 or so on).
- On level four, the sum must be a multiple of four (say 4 or 8 or 12 and on)!
- And so on! So the levels get harder and harder, since the player has to carefully add the numbers on the bubbles to see if they are worth shooting at!
- Use the left and right arrow keys to aim your bubble shooter.
- The up arrow key is the "fire" button. Use this key to fire off a bubble at the rack.
- Try to match the colors of the bubble you fire with the colors in the rack.
- Make sure the sum of the matching bubbles is a multiple of the level number. The level number is displayed in the bottom left corner of the screen.
- If there's no suitable place to shoot the bubble in the bubble shooter, you can also discard it by pressing the spacebar. Don't do this too often though. You may regret it!
Feel ready? Then pop away!
