Iphone App Reviews Spacebubble

SpaceBubble is a tilt game app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It was created by Nick Vellios is free as it really should be. This app lets you tilt the phone or ipod in order to avoid ‘space bubbles’ which fall at you from the top of the screen. This is something that is possible to find in the iTunes app store and this does it with far less happening than almost any of the other versions of this game.

If you are going to go to the effort of making a working app, and one that has reasonably good controls then I do not understand why you would stop short of making it an interesting game when that would be so easy in comparison to what you have already done. That is what a great many apps seem to do though and one of those is space bubble. The problem with this is that you have a ship which moves well, and items you can collect and enemies you try to dodge, and even lives and it all works well, but there is only one type of enemy and really only one type of item you collect, and as you advance the game does not even seem to get harder. It simply has things falling towards you forever. This is practically the definition of tedium and it is too bad because a few more graphics and some different move styles for enemies and you would have had something here.

When you open this app you will begin by having bubbles falling from the top of the screen. They are a green circle with a face on them. All of them look exactly the same. You simply tilt the phone in order to avoid them, which is harder than it may seem as they fall at different speeds and can sometimes trap you. In addition there will be ‘gems’ of different colors. You start with five lives, and get another every ten thousand points, if you can say interested long enough to get ten thousand points. As you advance the game stays more or less exactly the same. The bubbles do not speed up, or come in any different numbers and there are no more on the screen. You simply have more points.

This app gets one out of five stars because it hardly has enough done to call it a game and it could have been more.
