A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app is very easy to control, but there's no tutorial so it might take players a while to catch on. You simply tap anywhere on the screen to launch a bubble there, as opposed to other marble-popping apps that require players to aim the cannon first. Levels get progressively trickier as banking shots are required to get around obstacles. By default the cannon fires automatically if the player takes too long, but this mode can be turned off.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

A link from the menu takes the player to the Android Market to download additional levels (which are also free).

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Bubble Buster is a simple marble-popping arcade game with no objectionable content. There's a colorblind mode in which the bubbles are differentiated by shape instead of color. A similar game for iDevices, Bubble Shooter, is available in the App Store. This app was reviewed on a Motorola Milestone handset.

Is it any good?

Inspired by the likes of Bust-a-Move and Puzzle Bobble, BUBBLE BUSTER's marble-popping gameplay (shoot colored bubbles from a cannon to pop clusters of three or more) brings almost nothing new to the table save for a level editor that players can download for free as an add-on. Still, the game serves up 120 challenging levels and remembers your progress if you quit, making it a good little free timewaster to have on your phone.
