Editors' Review

+

We have to admit that when we first laid eyes on Bubble Breaker, we weren't impressed. It was nothing but a small rectangle full of colored circles arranged in a grid, and clicking on them in groups of two or more of the same color made them disappear. This didn't seem particularly fun or exciting at first, but once we played a few rounds and figured out exactly how the game worked, we couldn't tear ourselves away.

The object of the game is to attain a high score by popping bubbles, but this isn't obvious in the beginning, since there are no instructions or Help file. We finally figured out that the bubbles' point value increases depending on how many bubbles are in the group; a group of two bubbles is worth two points, a group of three is worth six, a group of four is worth 12, and so on. So although the game is easy to play--just point and click--achieving a high score involves plenty of strategizing to get lots of bubbles of the same color grouped together. There are four different bubble sizes to choose from, and you can also select custom colors for the bubbles. The four game modes--Standard, Continuous, Shifter, and Mega Shifter--provide varying levels of challenge.

Our major complaint about Bubble Breaker, aside from its complete lack of documentation, was the fact that it installed a Bing toolbar and WeatherBug without our permission. We're not a big fan of programs that bring uninvited software with them, and there are no doubt versions of this game that don't. But if you don't mind uninstalling programs that you never wanted to begin with, Bubble Breaker is an excellent choice for an addictive puzzle game.
