Bubble Twist uses a classic gameplay concept of making clusters of three or more colors in order to clear the pieces, but it brings some great music and pretty lengthy lasting value along with the classic concept all for the price of free.
Overall Score: 4/5
The gameplay is fun, simply because it uses a proven-to-be-successful concept. The presentation is unique and shines because of the music, and the lasting value is also very solid. However,Â Bubble Twist doesn’t resume your current game, so if you leave the game you have to restart the entire game, which can be frustrating.
The goal of the game is to break all the bubbles on the screen by forming clusters of three or more of the same color. You do this by shooting out bubbles from the top of the screen, which feels just right thanks to the spot-on controls. However, the twist comes in when all the current bubbles rotate on you, forcing you to adapt each time you prepare for a new shot. Overall, the controls work perfectly and the gameplay is pretty fun.
The music in the game perfectly fits the gameplay and actually makes the game more enjoyable. The visuals are relatively simple, yet look pretty good. The only disappointment is that the game doesn’t resume your current progress if you leave the game and try to come back to it.
Lasting Value: 3/5
Since the game doesn’t keep your progress saved when you leave it, that has an effect on the lasting value. The game itself can last a very long time (an unlimited time actually), but if you can’t take a break and come back to your current game, that ruins the potential lasting value. It does have both local and online leaderboards, but it could also benefit from daily, weekly, and monthly leaderboards instead of just all-time leaderboards.
