Bubble breaking games and smartphones go together like Google and world domination. There are an astounding number of similarly-themed titles available for download but which one is the best? In our humble opinion, Bubble Shoot.
The premise of Bubble Shoot is the same as every other bubble popping title for Android. Simply tap the touchscreen to match a string of coloured circles together. The quicker you clear the screen of bubbles the bigger the score you accumulate and the better the star rating you achieve for each puzzle or arcade level.
There’s not much to be had in the way of variety from this app, puzzle mode contains a static screen of bubbles whereas arcade mode sees a continuous wave of bubbles falling down in your direction. Occasionally, you’ll come across a Glassy Bubble or a Boom Bubble but for the large part it’s all about the simple joys of matching colours together.
With no extra paid-for features and an extremely responsive control system however, Bubble Shoot does exactly what it promises to do on the tin.
Bar a multiplayer High Score leader board and an easier ranking system in puzzle mode, there’s not much that we’d actually change about this nimble puzzler.
Few free puzzle downloads for Android are this expertly done or as fiendishly addictive.
The Bottom Line
Out off the bubble breaking Android apps, this is the best.
