There is nothing I like more than unwinding at the end of a hard day by playing a fun computer game. My favorite type of game for relaxing is undoubtedly the puzzle game.
There are so many different types of puzzle game these days but I really like something with a bit of action as well as something that makes me think a little.
Some video games that are instant classics and these games often take the best features of existing games but combine them in a unique and original way.
Bubble Shooter is such a game and takes its inspiration from a variety of puzzle, shooting, action and strategy games. It does a good job of combining all these into one highly addictive game.
Originally developed for Microsoft Windows, Bubble Shooter has now made it into just about every corner of the Internet. It has evolved into many different versions and is available on many different platforms and devices.
The basic idea behind Bubble Shooter is very simple. You have to shoot the bubbles before they reach the bottom of the screen. You are armed with a bubble gun which fires colored bubbles. In order to make a bubble disappear you have to hit it with a bubble of the same color.
It’s a very basic idea but makes for a very addictive game. If you hit a bubble with the correct color you also take out any connected bubbles of the same color. So it’s possible to take out a lot of bubbles at once with a bit of planning.
However, if you manage to miss your intended target or mismatch different colored bubbles you’re adding to the pile of bubbles approaching you. Once wrong move and you can quickly find yourself in bubble trouble!
Bubble Shooter follows in the tradition of other puzzle type games like Tetris and is just as addictive. The further you manage to get into the game the worse it is when you eventually lose your last life. The pace of the game increases the further you get and inevitably gets quite frantic.
There are all kinds of Bubble Shooter clones available with some interesting variations on the original. Power ups are a great way to add excitement to an existing game and Bubble Shooter is no exception. Getting your bubble gun upgraded adds a lot of enjoyment to this already enjoyable game.
There’s nothing better than firing a bubble grenade and watching all the bubbles get blown into oblivion. But it isn’t long before the screen is filled with lots more bubbles and you have more work to do with your trusty bubble gun.
If you like playing puzzle games I think you will enjoy Bubble Shooter. But it’s not just for puzzle fans, almost everyone I have spoke to loves playing it. There are even some multiplayer versions that allow you to compete with other players over the Internet.
I highly recommend giving Bubble Shooter games a try. It’s a truly unique experience that combines of shooting and bubble matching that will have you entertained for ages!
I enjoy playing classic video games including Bubble Shooter.
