Bubble Shooter: A Game for Those Who Seriously Need a Break
We all have our moments when we need to take a short break to be able to do something productive. I, as a writer, experienced constant times when no matter how hard I try to keep an idea flowing, it just won’t. What do I do then? I would either take a nap or awaken myself by playing simple, stimulating games like Bubble Shooter.
Bubble Shooter’s edge over other games is its ability to allow players to do things at his or her own pace. The trouble in finding games that suit busy people is because almost all games give time-limit as a challenge. By removing this, Bubble Shooter has provided a lot of possibilities for players who just wanted to find a short de-stressing escape from work or studies.
How does this game compensate for its lack of time-limit? By creating an atmosphere that challenges strategy-making. Bubble Shooter gives emphasis on high scores. To achieve this, you have to pop as many bubbles as you can with just a single shot. You pop bubbles by matching 3 or more of the same color. Popping 10 bubbles on a single time will help you achieve a higher score than popping the same number of balls in 2 batches.
One thing to avoid in this game is a foul move. A foul move comes from putting bubbles in places where they do not help in popping other bubbles. Doing constant foul moves results in an additional line of bubbles each time. You do not have to worry about additional line of bubbles when you are sitting idle on the other hand. As what I have said before, time is not really of importance in this game. You only get additional line of bubbles every time you commit the error of doing a series of wrong moves.
Apart from not having to worry about time-limit and speed, players will not be troubled with heavy graphics and sound effects in this game. This is good especially if you are someone who likes to multi-task. Shifting from working to playing and back again will not result in computer crashes. You can allow the game to run in the background without being worried that your work will be affected.
Whether you are a writer, a secretary, a social networker or even a student, Bubble Shooter is an awesome ice-breaker to your tasks. Do not force yourself to work when you are starting to feel stressed. Relax and unwind with a short game of Bubble Shooter.
