This free new game is a fast-paced, classic matching and popping bubble game. Players swipe or tap to fling bubbles and match up colors to clear the game board before time runs out. Players of Bubble Shot! will also have access to four types of power-ups, called Beam, Bomb, Freeze, and Barrier, designed to help players of different styles, or players on different game boards, do well. Each of these power-ups grants the player a short-term special ability to help solve the screen. The “Bomb” destroys a circle of surrounding bubbles, the “Beam”extends the length of the targeting beam, “Freeze” pauses game time, and the “Barrier” ability clears extra bubbles. Players gain power-ups and bonuses by winning Goldfish coins, and of course Bubble Shot! also allows players to shares scores and challenge friends through Facebook, for head-to-head battles or just bragging rights.
The game is available as a free download from the app store, and the trailer is here:
There are so many versions of the addictive match-three for iOs, Android, and PC, and so many themed versions as well. It will be interesting if Bubble Shot!’s bold colors and power-ups can make it stand out in such a crowded field.
