Bubble pop game
Bubble pop game is a simple game with a simple objective. Burst the bubbles using a point on a rope that shoots upwards. The bubbles have some density to themselves as they are able to bounce around and fall on the hero. The hero looks like a small red ninja and must weigh essentially nothing since a small bubble falling on him will defeat him with its weight. The bubble will split in two twice producing medium sized and small sized bubbles. Once there are nothing but small bubbles, take extra precautions not to be hit as they can be hard to see.
Initially only blue bubbles are seen, but as the gamer progresses further, more colorful bubbles are seen. Yellow, red and green to be precise. If a bubble starts as green, once hit it become red, then yellow and then blue. Hit the blue bubble again it will split in two, producing yellow again. The cycle starts over from yellow to blue until the bubble dissipates.
The player starts out with three hearts and loses one per hit, restarting the level in the process. Bonuses are available at random when bursting a bubble. These bonuses include:Speed, quick shot, shield, and an extra life. Speed will increase the hero’s walking speed, but watch out as you may lose control and run into a bubble. Quick shot allows the shots to travel faster so that more shots may be completed in a shorter amount of time. Shield will defend the hero from all damage, allowing him to abuse the system and destroy all bubbles. The extra life will give the hero one more chance to live, but only up to a total of 5 hearts. All bonuses, with the exception of the extra life, last for 30 seconds in game.
The player will occasionally see very simple level designs with some blocks hanging in the level. These blocks will give the bubbles a place to bounce off and will not stop the shots short. The player may also end up stacking bonuses on top of each other. Instead of restarting the clock, however, all bonuses will last until the latest’s timer runs out. Thus the hero really has an advantage when piling on bonuses. The controls for the game are simple as well. The hero will follow the mouse and left click will release the point into the air. If the bubble hits the rope instead of the point, it will still pop and reset the hero’s shot so that he may shoot again.
This game poses an interesting, yet difficult challenge as using the mouse does take some time to get used to using. All in all it make for a great cubefield game , or merely a good challenge to a friend to see who can beat the other’s highscore.
