Bubble Shuffle Bubble Shuffle is a word game with an undersea theme. Each level consists of a puzzle where a number of letters has been put in a bubble. It is up to the player to create as many words as possible using the available letters. When stuck, the bubbles can be shuffled to put them in a new order. Players can work their way up, starting with four letters, to more difficult levels with seven letters. To progress to a new level, a specific target number of words needs to be met, or one word using all letters.

There are four game modes, two timed and two without time restrictions. The game is hosted by the character Wordsworth Smartygills who guides the player through the game and provides clues. When discovering difficult words he also awards the player with seahorse pets. [source:mobygames]
