The objective of the game is to remove all the bubbles off a stage without the bubbles going underneath the line.

Types of Bubbles

Aim carefully!
Aim carefully!

Normal Bubbles: There are no special qualities on what these bubbles can do. Just pop 3 or more bubbles of the same color to free the characters that are held inside.

Star Bubbles:

Shoot this special star bubble at a normal bubble to cause all the bubbles that are alike in color to pop! However, if you shoot it at another star bubble, it will have no effect whatsoever.

Metal Bubbles:

A very special and mighty bubble that destroys any bubbles in its way: however, it will pop when it reaches the top.

Jama Bubbles:

You cannot bust these bubbles. You must get rid of them by popping its neighbors.

Jama Block:

This bubble can never be popped, and you can't drop them due to bubbles sticking to them.
