Any games like bubble bobble?

Are there any games out for the ipod now that are like bubble bobble? With the whole "shoot the colored sphere to make three" thing.

Thanks!

I remember Bubble Bobble for the NES but I'm not getting the "shoot the colored sphere to make three" part. Since when was Bubble Bobble a match 3game?

its probably puzzle bobble and it does have those dinosaur characters from bubble bobble in it, but i would like to see a bubble bobble like game in the app store.

There is a game called Chippy that is pretty similar - the name even states that it is "inspired by Bubble Bobble. I have played it, and while it is not perfect - its is pretty good.

Link to Chippy

Sorry - misread - similar to Bubble Trouble...

yea its like where you shoot the little colored circle out of the cannon and you have to make combos of three otherwise the balls keep getting closer to the bottom of the level. Thanks for the similar apps tho!

Unfortunately, there's no game exactly like the old Bubble Bobble. Its just one of those one-of-a-kind games that no one tried to replicate or remake yet.

Yeah, there's one that's pretty much EXACTLY bubble bobble but the name slips my mind. Let me see if I can find it
