Bubble Shooter 2 Walkthrough
"A puzzle game that will keep you busy for a while" - that's what it says on the page of Bubble Shooter 2 and I couldn't agree more! The game isn't really complicated. The graphics and design are anything BUT jaw-dropping or eye-popping. HOWEVER, it's easy to find yourself playing the game for LONG hours. YES, Bubble Shooter 2 can get REALLY addictive!
The objective of the game is as straightforward and as simple as it could get: there's a bunch of colored balls or bubbles in the game, and you need to eliminate ALL of them. So how do you go about shooting them down? Simple, you need to shoot more colored balls to them. You see, when you hit 3 or more balls of the same color, the whole bunch will collapse and points are added to your score. For example: there's a pair of red bubbles somewhere in the game. You have a red ball at hand. Shoot it to the 2 red balls and down they will go. Doing this is just as easy. Your shooter, which is located at the bottom most part of the screen, and its shooting angle can be moved with your mouse. Once you are all set, just hit the left click button to fire away.
While blowing up 3 bubbles with one shot should be enough to get you by, you will earn MORE points by blowing up more balls in one shot. For example: you can eliminate 6 balls with 2 shots... BUT if you can land one and take down all of them, then that would be 10 times better in terms of score. Along with that, the bubbles or colored balls that are hanging on the bunch fall down to... which does a good job of further increasing your score. True, setting up such shots take some time. BUT trust me, it's well worth it especially if you want to grab the top-scorer's spot!
If your shot fails to take down any bubbles, you will be penalized. And if you get enough penalties, another row or line of balls will be added on top of the bunch. Misfiring all the time is a sure fire way of getting ran over by those balls! It is VERY important that you make every shot count. Also, it helps when you keep an eye on the number of misfires you are allowed to make. This is indicated with the silver balls located on the lower left part of the screen.
There are no compromises in this game. It's either you make it by taking out all of the balls or you get crushed by them. There's nothing in between.
While the FREE version of this bubble-shooting puzzle game is really good, there are some functions that you will miss. You cannot save your progress in the middle of the game and go back to it later. You cannot automatically save your settings (level of difficulty, color, etc.), and those are just to name a few.
This is easily remedied by buying the paid version of Bubble Shooter 2.
Summing things up, this is one of those bubble-shooting puzzle games that will surely keep you glued on your computer monitor for a very long time. It's simple, it's straightforward, and it's very addictive!
