Inside Out Thought Bubbles

Last Updated on

  • Movie tie in – Character power ups – Age setup in app
  • Poor optimisation and crashes

Inside Out Thought Bubbles takes the idea of memory bubbles from the hit movie and brings it your mobile device. Shoot and match memories across the 800 levels with power ups from your favourite characters.


The game opens up with Joy greeting the players and introducing them to headquarters, placing a new happy memory alongside the other ones. Joy is just one of the characters you’ll get to follow along with as Fear, Sadness, Anger and Disgust also make an appearance across the film inspired locations of Family Island, Boy Band Island, Imagination Land and many others.

Mechanically Inside Out Thought Bubbles is your standard bubble shooter, you’ve got several colours of bubbles (called memory balls), an aim assist to help you hit those tricky shots and several hundreds of levels. The objective for each level changes up regularly from clearing the entire board of memories to capturing memory orbs or saving mind workers. While simple its made more complex by limited numbers of coloured memory orbs and obstacles such as faded memories.


Regardless of your objective it revolves around two key mechanics, using your available pools of memories and making best use of the power up of your selected character. While some levels have a set character most do let you pick who you want to play as which changes your power up for that level.

Sadness for example can create a line of clouds to wipe out orbs while Joy can perform large matches by converting a colour. Anger, Fear and Disgust have similar abilities to clear the board quickly that also tie into their emotion such as the fire path generated by Anger, the ability to send balls flying as Fear and a repel function with Disgust.


  • Inside Out themed mobile game.
  • Match coloured memories in 100s of game levels.
  • Use unique abilities of the Inside Out cast.
  • Visit familiar locations from the film.
  • Set an age restriction within the app to make for child safe gaming.
