Bubble, an addictive JavaScript game

From a casual browse around the net, I found a game built in Flash which had been ported onto the iPhone. It was a simple puzzle game, but I have never been able to find it again.

From my searches to re-discover that gem, I came across Bubble, a game in a similar vein and probably more refined than the one I was looking for. what makes it even more impressive is the fact that it's all JavaScript based and seems to work flawlessly.

The game doesn't seem to be bloated with lots of code, and works great in FireFox. I haven't tested it in other browsers, but I don't imagine there being many, if any, issues.

The people behind Bubble have also introduced a log stacking game, which isn't too shabby itself! The presentation is lovely and the use of JavaScript is truly inspiring to me. I wouldn't mind taking a crack at re-producing the Bubble game, but I very much doubt I'd ever make it as elegant and easy to use!

One of the best things is the fact that it should work on a iPhone/iPod Touch because it doesn't require Flash, just a browser with JavaScript enabled. The size of the games, I'm guessing, should match the screen on these devices and would look pretty sweet.
