Hi guys. I have recently thought of the idea of making a game like Bubble poke, but I need your guys' help. When someone clicks on a color group, I was wondering how the code could check to see if any other colors are touching the bubble that was poked. Thanks for any good suggestions! Personally, I was thinking of a "check snake", where the code just scans the entire matrix like a snake for any touching bubbles. The problem with that is that it would take forever. I was seeing if you guys had any better suggestions. Thanks!
My idea is, when the player picks a bubble, check the 4 adjacent bubbles, and then if any of those are the same color, check the 3 adjacent ones that are around it, and so on and so forth. That way, you aren't checking the entire board.

That is a good idea. I will try that. Thank you! And if anyone else has any more suggestions then feel free to share your idea!
Yea you basically need to implement a flood fill.

Is that what I described? If so, cool, because I didnt know that I knew how to flood fill 😂
I was able to implement a flood fill! The ti-84 plus does it kinda slow, but it works! I am sure that when I translate this source code to C for the CE calculator, it will run much much faster. Here is the flood fill code:

Code:
```If G=105 Then 0→R Output(8,12,"LOAD. 1→M [A](K,J)→L 0→[A](K,J) For(D,1,10 Output(6,13," Output(6,12,D M+R→R If M>0 Then 0→M For(A,max(1,K-D),min(8,K+D) Output(6,15,A For(B,max(1,J-D),min(10,J+D Output(7,13," Output(7,12,B If A+1<9 Then If [A](A+1,B)=0 and [A](A,B)=L Then 0→[A](A,B) M+1→M End End If A-1>0 Then If [A](A-1,B)=0 and [A](A,B)=L Then 0→[A](A,B) M+1→M End End If B+1<11 Then If [A](A,B+1)=0 and [A](A,B)=L Then 0→[A](A,B M+1→M End End If B-1>0 Then If [A](A,B-1)=0 and [A](A,B)=L Then 0→[A](A,B M+1→M End End End End End End```
