App description: Bubble Trolls is a physics based arcade game where you use ripples to help Grunget the Troll ride a bubble downstream to his home under the bridge. Along the way you must avoid obstacles (including rocks, logs, turtles, fish, rapids, and more) that can pop the bubble and drown Grunget.

*** FEATURES ***

- Unique, addictive gameplay that is easy to learn, but difficult to master.
- 3 challenging courses. (25 in full version!)
- Game Center leaderboard integration. (Full version only.)


Grunget is cranky, all he wants to do is get home, and you must work very hard not to kill, drown or otherwise upset him. He will complain if you steer in the wrong direction, leave him stranded on a rock, or if he is scared.

- Tap the water to make ripples that will push the bubble in the direction you wish to go.

- Dont tap directly on the bubble -- bubbles are fragile -- it will pop and Grunget will drown.

- Dont overload the bubble with too many ripples. If you are overloading the bubble, it will turn red and Grunget will complain to warn you that it is about to pop. If the bubble turns red, let it cool off before hitting it with more ripples.

- If you leave Grunget stranded, you can pick him up with your next bubble. As you approach, tap on the stranded Grunget and he will call the bubble over. He will automatically jump in as soon as the bubble is close enough. Bubbles can hold 2 trolls maximum. With 2 trolls, the bubble will be larger and more fragile, but you will get extra points for finishing.

- Grunget loves to eat ham. Collect the hams scattered around the courses to keep Grunget happy and earn extra points.

- When you reach Grungets lagoon, the bubble will automatically steer itself to shore and deliver Grunget safely home.

Power Ups:

Float Bubble pick up the purple butterfly wings and the bubble will safely float above all obstacles for a short time. While flying above the water, ripples wont work, so tilt your device in the direction you want to steer. Make sure that you dont land on any obstacles or critters, or the bubble will pop!

Tough Bubble pick up the red and white life preserver, and the bubble will be protected for a short time. You can tap like crazy, and the protected bubble will safely bounce off any obstacles.

Riverdale, Maryland US April 22, 2011 - Leading independent game developer Broken Switch Studios, Inc., today announced the launching of its new title Bubble Trolls on the Apple App Store™.

Bubble Trolls is a physic based arcade style game where the player must help a Troll travel downstream to his home via a Bubble Taxi. The player creates ripples by tapping the water to move the Bubble Taxi past a myriad of hazards and critters determined to pop the bubble and eat the Troll. Players are aided along the way with powers-ups that make the bubble harder to pop or cause it to float in the air.

"Bubble Trolls is a crazy, fun and addictive ride that will have you tapping and laughing. The levels are deceptively easy at first but quickly turn you into a tapping fiend,” said Broken Switch’s Creative Director Bernard Moore. “This game was fun to make and for better or worse our Troll, Grunget, is a reflection of those who worked on him”.

Bubble Trolls Features:
Over 20 Levels of increasing difficulty
Over 20 possible achievements
Comical characters
Leader Boards
