Bubble Island, the game that popularized the bubble shooting genre on Facebook with its signature speedy gameplay, launches on mobile today. Redesigned from the ground up with mobile in mind, Bubble Island reimagines the gameplay experience players know and love for the iPhone and iPad.

Since launching in 2010, over 60 million players around the world have played Bubble Island. Bubble Island on mobile continues in the vein of the Wooga’s breakout mobile arcade hit, Diamond Dash, by placing a strong emphasis on social, connected gaming. Friends can take part in cross platform competitions while sharing gameplay experiences directly to Facebook.

Founder and CEO of Wooga, Jens Begemann, is excited about Wooga’s expansion into the mobile market. “Bubble Island mobile is a huge milestone for everyone at Wooga and marks the start of a very exciting six months. Having seen such long term success on Facebook, we’re excited to bring Bubble Island to the iPhone and iPad”.

In order to bring the fun gameplay experience to mobile the team carefully adapted the game’s core mechanics for mobile. Every level of the game has been redesigned for the iPhone, while adjustments were made to the speed and size of the bubbles to ensure the game feels just right and stands out from the crowd by offering a uniquely fast gameplay experience.

Bubble Island on mobile continues Wooga’s expansion into the mobile gaming market. The release kicks off a busy six months for the Berlin based developer that will see the team of 250 employees double their portfolio of games, with Diamond Dash on Android and Monster World on the iPhone and iPad just two of the many new games to come.

To celebrate the debut of Bubble Island on mobile, a major update will also go live for the web version of the game. The update refreshes the gameplay to bring exciting challenges to new players and long term fans alike.
