The idea of Popillon is simple. Pop the
bubbles (or other shapes) to get points. The more bubbles you pop at one
time, the more points you get. Depending on the settings, if you clear a
column, more bubbles appear for you to remove.
So, what is what does Popillon offer over other
games based on the same idea? First, there game allows for a great deal of
customization, not only in the rule set, but also in the game's appearance.
The thumbnail above shows just one such customization.
Game options include the use of wildcards, variable number of colors (four
through six), different size boards, unlimited undo's, and a number of shifting
options (how the pieces will move after neighboring pieces are removed).
Some of these options are only available in the registered version of the game.
Currently, all available skins are included with both the demo and the
registered copy of the game. If you have the demo of version 1.0 (not
1.0a), you will need to download the newest demo or register your copy to get
the extra skin.
If you have a skin you would like to add, please let me know.
Before updating, you need to know exactly which version of Popillon
you have installed on your computer. You can find the version number in
the menu "Help->About Popillon." Once you
have that information, download the appropriate patch and then run it on your
