Is this a port from Palm or PPC? Why don't the bubbles run the full width of the screen?
Don't just do "5-minute ports"! This will not help the 770 platform.

I love bust a move.

I visited the Frozen Bubbles site ( http://www.frozen-bubble.org/downloads/ )and the information there seems pretty clear that it was designed on Linux boxes (hence the penguins).
My guess is that the two-player version is 640 x 480 in order to fit the widest number of screens (circa years ago, eh?), and the 1-player version is half that. (See pictures at http://www.frozen-bubble.org/making%20of/ .)
I don't see anything that indicates there are PocketPC or Palm versions.

So, will it support multiplayer gaming on the same network or via adhoc? :D

Quick and (very) dirty guide to running Frozen Bubble on the 770:
- get r00t
- have dpkg work by creating the missing file and directories it complains about not having
- get FB .debs for ARM from any deb source
- dpkg --force-all -i the debs
- DISPLAY=:0; export DISPLAY
- run /usr/games/frozen-bubble -ns -vs
- look at the error message, find the .deb containing the missing file and install it
- repeat last 2 steps until no error
- play :)

Why don't the bubbles run the full width of the screen?
The number of bubbles in a row is an important factor in the game's hardness, so you can't really alter that. And you don't want them non-round either.
Maybe if it played in portrait mode it would look better ?

Just curious: is it optified ?

No, it isn't.
