In Bubble Puzzle 97, you control a cannon that will shoot differently colored balls, or bubbles, to the top of the screen. You aim your cannon so that three balls of the same color touch each other and disappear from the playing field. Your goal is to remove all balls from the level. Each ball is imprinted with animated facial expressions that react to your play, and each level presents faster speeds and more complex bubble structures (see screen shot).
This version of the game includes updates for Windows 95, automatic detection of a defective DirectX installation, joystick/joypad support, a new configuration tool, and a bug fix.
