Disappointing

The levels are unpredictable. Promised rewards are scarce and often absent. When the game enters you in a contest, you find no one is on equal footing, so the user is now wasting time and energy on an unfair game. This is discouraging and NOT conducive to spending money. If you click on an Ad for a booster, you are rewarded with the game resetting and a loss of progress. Now you have the sponsors wasting their money. Do not waste your time.

Is It Any Good?

Like playing pool with a ton of balls, this physics-based puzzle game uses simple mechanics to make something compelling and fun. Using simple touch controls, Bubble Witch 3 Saga has you trying to pop all the bubbles on the screen before you run out of shots. By aiming and then launching one of your colored bubbles, you try to hit one of the same color that's next to another that's also of that color; -- i.e., three in a row. Do this, and all the same colored bubbles will pop. Do it multiple times, and you'll reach your ultimate goal of clearing all the bubbles -- or at least all the bubbles holding owls. But while this may sound simple, it doesn't stay that way. Besides having a limited number of shots -- well, once you get past the first dozen levels or so -- you also have no control over the color of your shooting bubble, though you often have a choice between two colors. On the flip side, there are special bubbles that can help you, as well as uncolored bubbles that can become colorized. But while this is fun, the controls can sometimes be a little slow to respond, and you can accidentally misfire. Still, if you enjoyed the previous Bubble Witch games and need a break from matching candies or gems of the same color, Bubble Witch 3 Saga will keep you engaged until the next semester at Hogwarts.
