This looks cool! So it is similar to a Bubble Booble play mechanism? But of course with some major twists it looks like. But same idea?

Similar in that you have to match the same colors up above. In Linkoidz, rather than being given new items and firing them up above, you have to pull them in from existing columns, then put them into other columns.

Check out this other video, it has a little gameplay tutorial section at the start.

It's more like Magical Drop or Astropop than Puzzle Bobble, if you've played either of those, but it plays faster, and was designed with a touch screen in mind .
