Retro-Style Arcade Action

Dodge and pop bubbles with your anchor while collecting power-ups and managing Bubble Pirate’s constant gravity-switching mischief! When you feel at your Piratey-est, test your skill in the ultra-challenging Hyper Mode… The game may be faster and harder, but you’ll find treasures beyond your wildest dreams. Coins as far as the eye can see!
