Bubble shooter games proved to be a long living genre despite the many innovations of flash gaming today. Yeah, itís a classic already. This game, straightforwardly entitled Bubble Shooter, captures most of the thrills of its predecessors, and presented with a minimalistic approach.
The game is so small that you wonít see a loading screen if your connection is fast enough, and thatís good because you can jump in the game hassle-free! You donít have to choose between game modes and even the settings are made easy for the casual gamer. Youíll be playing at novice level which is the gameís default. The mechanics are simple and probably familiar; you shoot a bubble with the launcher at the bottom of the screen. String two of the same color of bubbles together to pop them. Move your mouse to aim and an arrow will show the path of your projectile, and try to pop many at once for a higher score since you can post them for other bubble shooter players to see. Competition is good in any game.
You can always try to shoot at your leisure, but you have to be careful at where you shoot. Accumulating too many bubbles on screen pulls the cluster down, and if even one bubble touches the bottom of the screen, then itís game over for you my friend. Actually, that problem arises early in the game since the cluster of bubbles is already big from the start. If your shot fails to make a bubble group explode, then itís considered a Ďfoulí. Too many fouls and a new line of bubbles will appear on the top of the screen. The number of misfires allowed for you before another line appears is shown at the bottom left of the screen, as silver balls.
You can see the color of the next bubble from the one mounted on your launcher so youíll know where best to launch it if there is no available group for that current bubble, and you donít want it to block the other colors. Did you get that? You will, once things get hectic. Also, the bubbles that fall apart from the rest explode too. For example, you clear red colored bubbles, and two blue bubbles are clinging onto those red ones, then they disappear too. Good for you. Also thereís this thing called an avalanche, when you happen to clear many bubbles at a time. Theyíre worth ten times more points than ordinary bursts.
Come here and play the scary maze game that will give you a shiver and make your hair stand up.
Since the game is minimalistic, there isnít much to worry about except to clear the game youíve been given. If you want to change things a bit, you can change the setup of the game in the top right corner of the screen. Adjust the board color into your favorite, you can also change the difficulty but you have to download the deluxe version first. You can choose to autosave or activate the animation of the game (Yes, there is an animation. Random bubbles shake up in the screen).
