This bubble-shooting experience by the Japanese Bubble Shooter studio is an extraordinary game. You can see that’s it’s not like other games in the genre from the first sight. It has excellent visuals and lots of original features. No wonder it was downloaded for over 70 million times!
Graphics/Sound – 10/10
I’ve tested dozens of bubble-shooting puzzles, and Bubble Shooter stands out of the lines due to its original style. It’s not set in another candy valley or another generic scene. Bubble Shooter will take you to an original vision of space and various mysterious ancient dungeons. The roster of bubbles and other tiles is also impressive. The soundtrack in the game is rather simple, but it manages to add up some flavor to the gameplay.
Interface and Controls – 10/10
Bubble Shooter has a beautiful interface with catchy original arts. The gameplay interface perfectly fits the style of visuals, too, and doesn’t distract you from playing. Controls in Bubble Shooter are very simple. You have to move the golden cannon by swiping left and right to choose the best position and then tilt it left and right to adjust the best angle for shooting. Next, you have to tap to shoot and watch what happens.
Gameplay – 10/10
The gameplay of Bubble Shooter is highly addictive, and there are 2 ways to prove it. First, look at the number of downloads. Second, try to play it for a few minutes, and you will see. Bubble Shooter is set in an original universe that combines space and ancient scenes. It’s very exciting to complete levels and unlock new stages one by one.
Your objective is to shoot the bubbles from a golden cannon in order to match colors and remove similar balls from the board. There are several types of bubbles that have different colors. Besides, there are alive guard shields that protect them. Sometimes they require 2-5 hits to break.
The balls loaded into the cannon’s barrel are always of different colors. That makes matching a big challenge that requires good concentration and inventiveness. It’s crucial to shoot on the proper angle to complete levels without losing all moves.
In the hardest cases, you can apply some powerful power-ups, such as explosives, multi-color bubbles, and many more. All the bubbles that you explode fall down into one of 5 stone boxes. They symbolize elements on nature, such as earth, water, fire, wind, and plants. If the color of the falling ball matches the color of the symbol, you get the highest bonus.
Lasting Appeal – 10/10
There are hundreds of levels in the free version of Bubble Shooter so that you don’t have to pay to unlock any of them. Just complete objectives and progress. Your overall score will grow, raising your place on the leaderboard as a reward. It’s also playable in both offline and online modes.
Bubble Shooter is an excellent game that deserves the attention of every fan of dynamic mobile puzzles. It involves original mechanics, exciting boosters, many rewards, and pure addictive gameplay. You can download it on the App Store and Google Play for free.
