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 visited the Frozen Bubbles site ( )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 .)

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?

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

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 ?
