App Review: Bubble Twirrl by mAPPn, Inc.
From the makers of Melody Match and Diamond Breaker comes Bubble Twirrl. After hearing the name of the app, I thought it would be cute and fun. It was fun, but I grossly underestimated the challenge that the game presented. The goal of the game is clear all the bubbles on the screen by creating groups of three or more bubbles of the same color.
To create groups of like colored bubbles, you shoot the bubble at the top of the screen at the bubbles in the center of the screen. You can make a direct shot or bounce the balls off the top, bottom, or sides of the screen. If the bubble bounces around all sides of the screen without hitting anything else, it will disappear. Tap on the screen and drag you finger around to aim the shot. Release your finger to fire the shot. The trick comes when your shot hits the other bubbles at an angle. These angled shots will cause the other bubbles to start spinning. Spinning the bubbles around can help or hurt your situation.
When you create a group of bubbles of the same color, they disappear from the screen. Any bubbles that are attached only to the group will also disappear. You can earn more points for clearing larger groups. You can try to set up your shots. Next to the ball that you are shooting, the app does show you the color of the next ball. The game is over when you either clear all of the bubbles on the screen or when any area of the bubble ball grows too large to rotate around the screen.
Bubble Twirrl is a great puzzle app. The game is simple, yet the levels are challenging. It is sure to keep you coming back for more.
