Bubble Worlds takes you across 5 different world locations and 180 individual game levels as you quest to get 3 stars on every single level. While not as flashy as other big budget releases on the market Bubble Worlds offers up a healthy variety of levels and does it without the usual in app purchases making it attractive for those that just want no fuss bubble popping gameplay.

This is also the first thing you’ll notice when opening up your Bubble Worlds app with the simple approach and design aesthetic which leads the game to focusing more on interesting and challenging levels rather than the flashy graphics and excessive in app purchases of other large popular bubble matching games. While this might not to be everyone’s tastes Bubble Worlds is clear in its intentions that it is designed for players that want a no fuss challenging game without the bells and whistles designed to separate you from your cash on in game purchases.

Starting with a historical theme Bubble Worlds takes players across levels such as forest, snow and mountain ranges which provides some basic gameplay variety as you work your way through the 180 levels. As mentioned each level comes with its own star rating although 3 stars is rarely handed out for anything less than perfect gameplay and ideal for the completionist bubble popping gamer who wants to challenge themselves to unlock all the available stars.

To assist in reaching this achievement Bubble Worlds includes power ups known as props which can be activated before a level begins for a set amount of coins that are earned solely for each level completion.

Props include extra gold coins (generally worth activating to boost your level income and offsetting the cost), improved aiming, fireballs to remove all bubbles in your path, powerful coloured bubbles to pop anything and extra bubbles to complete the level. With this design Bubble Worlds achieves a nice game flow for the intermediately experienced player with the ability to take earned coins from successful 3 star levels to assist with the ones that you had a little more difficulty with.

This difficultly can stem from numerous mechanics in Bubble Worlds through obstacles that are introduced early on and have their own unique interactions with likes of stones, glass bubbles and poison requiring varying strategy to overcome. Thus, Bubble Worlds is ideal for the intermediate to advance player that isn’t looking for a simple bubble game that lines up perfect matches for the first 50 or so levels without any real challenge to the player.

Summary:

  • Simple design with lack of in app purchases offers allows players to focus on bubble matching gameplay.
  • 180 unique game levels across various themes.
  • Multiple obstacles to counter and conquer with their own mechanics and challenges.
  • Earn coins for each level to spend on boosts to chase 3 star achievements.
  • Exclusive to Android devices.
