Bubble Eyes is a very exciting puzzle game for Windows Phone, thanks to which you will not notice how time flies when in a trip or waiting for something, and you can properly stretch your brain. The essence of the game is that you need to clear the playing field of some one-eyed balls of red, green, yellow and blue colors. And you have to cope with the task in a very limited number of moves.
Looking at the screenshots, you can already calculate that the number of balls on the playing field can be up to 25 pieces. Now imagine that you have to get rid of all these balls in just a couple of moves and in one move you can touch only one ball. The challenge seems impossible, doesn't it? In fact, everything is not as difficult as it may seem at first glance, but there will also be no easy victories in this game.
Gameplay featuresThe trick of the game lies in a chain reaction which can be caused by the red balls. Once you touch a red ball, it will break into four fragments which will fly in different directions horizontally and vertically. If on the way such fragments come across another red ball, it will await the fate of the one that has just burst. And, of course, it will also shutter into pieces in all four directions. The complexity of the game lies in the fact that the green, yellow and blue balls don't explode when colliding with fragments (or when touching them) but only change their color. The blue ones turn yellow, the yellow turns into green, and the green becomes red.
Objectives and tasksYou should not just burst balls of red, but also make all the balls on the playing field turn red and explode in a chain reaction. The game begins simply enough. There are not so many balls on the playing field, most of them are red, and the ready-made solution is literally evident. However, after a couple of levels, you will encounter truly complex challenges. Most likely, you will start to look around for the very red ball which can cause a wave of explosions, but it may happen that you will never find it.
It's all because you have to turn your attention to the green balls, even if there are only two moves at your disposal. When you find the right green ball, you might need to double-tap it spending two turns, and maybe it will be enough to make one tap, and after it is repainted in red, to switch to another similar ball. Generally speaking, in the absence of training the brain may just boil, so be more attentive and then you will succeed.
ResumeIn terms of graphics, the game is performed quite efficiently. The only thing that's a bit annoying is a very slow flight if fragments after the explosion, and too hype advertisements which can be represented as a thin banner at the bottom of the screen or as a huge picture across the entire screen. The rest of the game provokes no complaints.
