Release Date

2007-04-??

Bubbles! (Also known as Pop the Bubbles!) was the signature minigame of jiggmin.com developed by Jacob Grahn that was first released in April 2007.

Gameplay

Bubbles continuously float in a small frame from one side to the other that the player can pop with their cursor. There is no score tracker, giving the game more of a casual experience than competitive.

Versions

Original

The first variation of Bubbles! was introduced in the second redesign and featured several notable differences from the more well-known second. This version was located inside the header and featured horizontally moving bubbles from left to right.

The bubbles floated far more rapidly and were smaller in size, making them more difficult to pop. This version was available until early 2009.

Old Bubbles

Second

Jiggmin's third website redesign in 2009 brought another version of the game that permanently remained apart of the layout. As the header was no longer made in Flash, it was placed in its own area below the sub-header. Bubbles now vertically float from the bottom at a slower pace and are larger, allowing players to easily pop more of them and making the experience more laid-back.

Bats?

A special variation called Bats? was created for a Halloween skin in 2012 that replaced the staple bubbles with bats. While they retain the bubble's poppable traits, a confused "Pop?" comes out of them instead of "Pop!".

Bats

Trivia

  • Bubbles are the vehicles in Kongregate Racing.
  • A bubble was jiggmin.com's favicon at one point.[1]
  • Despite there being no place to type, the second and Bats? versions contain unused code for swear filters that are typically in Jiggmin's multiplayer games.
