A Facebook Game – A Puzzle Bobble Review

Usually we can find a lot of games in Facebook, but never have I ever thought I ever see a classical puzzle game in it. Puzzle Bobble is a real classic, back during the early days of 8 bits graphic. Yes, it is that old! The game has been ported over to Facebook and added into Social Games collections.

For those who think this game looks really odd! Do not judge the game by its age as this game is one of the earliest gems puzzle games ever created. The game was created by Taito for one of the arcade game machine (Imagine how much money I fee into those evil machine 유로88 when I was a little kid). The game also represents the company’s icon or more like stars idols during that era which are the Double Bubbles dragons. Cute adorable and shoot bubbles out from their mouth, these little guys will be helping players to navigate the gems.

The gameplay to this game is very simple, just match the gems with the same color and destroy all of the gems above you before it hits the ground. Aside from just shooting, gem can also bounce itself from the side of the wall to an area which may be hard to reach by normal method. This tactic takes a bit of getting use to and most time players may actually make mistake. Try mastering it and it will save the game a lot.

The game also provides a bit of hints during gameplay. Player will notice the small little brown bag with spare gems beside it. This is the next gems that will be use next. This allows players to plan ahead of time before shooting the current gems to their target.

The look of the game is old, but what do you expect from a game that was made 20 years ago! However the game was ported nicely to Facebook and there is not much lag in the game. Everything runs smoothly.
