The first Bubble Blast game was already a huge hit, being downloaded over a hundred thousand times from the Android Market. Bubble Blast 2 will hope to build on this success and aim higher. Whether they succeed or not depends on whether they manage to capture the addictive nature of the first. Lets have a look.
Functions & Design
Lets start off by saying that Bubble Blast 2 is very similar to the original, the aim of the player is to burst all of the bubbles on the screen within a certain amount of turns. One turn equals one pop of a bubble, so the player must pick the right bubble to burst in order to start a chain reaction of pops, otherwise he will simply run out of turns. There are three types of bubbles Red which pop when being hit, then green, yellow and blue bubbles. Blue and yellow bubbles are a little harder, they both need to be hit a few more times before being ready to burst. Blue bubbles need to be hit four times, yellow three times and green twice. When these bubbles get hit they grow in size up to the next variant of bubble, eg: blue to yellow then yellow to green.
Bubble Blast 2 offers two different modes: there is puzzle mode and arcade mode. Puzzle mode is simple, the player will work through the puzzles and they will eventually get harder and harder. There is over 1300 levels to work through so it’s unlikely any casual gamers will run out of levels on this game. The second game type, Arcade mode is a mode where you are given a certain amount of turns,with these lives the player must try and get through as many puzzles as he can. Also in arcade mode you will accumalte points to build towards your total score at the end, which will then be compared to everyone elses high scores around the world via a high scoreboard.
Bubble Blast though being very similar to the original is still a very addictive little game, great for burning a few minutes on the train to work or on the way to class. Later levels in the game can become quite challenging sometimes and can get your brain ticking. Bubble Blast 2 is a great addition to the series thus far, and we’re sure there will be plenty of people out there who will spend more than a few hours playing this addictive game.
