Tiny Bubbles is an organic puzzle game about matching colors in clusters of realistic soap bubbles. The game was inspired by my grandfather, Cyril Stanley Smith, who was a scientist at MIT and did research on bubbles. The player’s job is to fill bubbles with colorful air to strategically reshape the cluster. You can also break bubble edges and combine neighbors to mix new colors. When you create a match of four or more colors, the bubbles deflate and this creates cascading animations. The game has over 170 puzzles in 7 worlds and there are different game modes: puzzle, arcade, and infinity. Available Spring 2018 on iOS, Android, and Steam.
