Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Liqua Pop is a casual, arcade-style color-matching game with a twist. As colored bubbles fill the screen, you need to drag like-colored ones together, forming them into bubbles large enough to pop (you pop them by shaking your device). You only need to make sure the screen never fills completely. The game does get more challenging as it goes along, but it will be quite a while before it gets truly difficult. There's also a cute little frog that moves up a bamboo reed every time you clear the screen.

Is it any good?


One of the great things about LIQUA POP is that, on its most basic level -- drag like-colored bubbles together and pop them -- it can be played by young kids (or non-gamers who are new to game strategies). But more experienced players can go for higher points by trying to build bigger bubbles, or trying to pop several at the same time for score multipliers, or strategically using the different "power bugs" that sometimes appear inside a droplet. The bugs, depending on which kind they are, will affect the drops around them when released by changing their color or setting off chain-reactions of popping. LiquaPop works on many different levels for a variety of players, and has gorgeous visuals and lovely tranquil sound effects as well. It's a very nice app overall.
