Survios environment designer Christina Orcutt spoke with Screen Rant about Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey’s many color blindness options.
In celebration of Bubble Bobble’s 35th anniversary, Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey is taking the series’ puzzle game spinoff into 3D for the first time. The jump to a new dimension also brings three distinct Colorblind mode accessibility options, letting players with red-green, blue-yellow, or other types of color blindness enjoy the game on console or in VR.
Puzzle Bobble, initially known as Bust-a-Move in the U.S. and Europe, is a match-three puzzle series that sees players clear formations of multicolored bubbles from a screen by firing same-color bubbles at them. Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey’s 3D puzzles turn the bubble formations into “three-dimensional clusters that spin and rotate with realistic physics when bubbles collide,” according to a press release from developer and publisher Survios, which should add further depth to the central bubble firing mechanic. The game will feature 100 levels in Story Mode, as well as endless puzzles in Infinite Mode and a 1v1 Duel Mode.
