This is the full deluxe version of our popular game Bubble Bay.
Recognized iPhone gaming magazine SlideToPlay.com gave Bubble Bay an excellent rating and wrote:
"...Bubble Bay, a new bubble-popping game from Powerhouse Games, is superficially similar to many other games on the App Store, but is actually a different sort of animal altogether--and we're not just talking about the octopus protagonist. While there is enough gameplay here to occupy you, the game's languid pace and ambient soundtrack makes it seem like it was also designed to lull you into a relaxed, happy state. The combination works well."

This beautiful and atmospheric game is based on a fresh addictive and easy to learn action puzzle concept that will keep you playing for hours. Help the octopus pop the bubbles while searching for the lost Atlantis and collecting colorful reef fish.
Everything in Bubble Bay is designed to give the player a fun experience with a great original game play. The graphics and special effects are vivid and colorful adding to a great oceanic feel.

Nice game idea, pretty good program
I reviewed Bubble Bay version 1.5. It is a nice game idea well implemented with minor drawbacks. You maneuver an octopus that can hold four colored bubbles. Touching a bubble matching one you are holding causes both to pop, opening more room to move. You must work your way down an ascending column of bubbles. Several colors are too similar, so it is easy to pick up the wrong color, wasting precious space in the octopus' arms. I worked through early areas quickly but had to try the final area many times. The program takes 26 seconds to start. I think at $4.99 it is priced too high, but I enjoyed the game.
It took me several tries, but I did finish the game. It was quite addictive and I still play it at times. I agree that some of the colours are hard to distinguish from similar colours. I would suggest adding a high score feature, so that players can save their scores and try to beat their scores after completing the game. Maybe adding in another mode, such as pop as many bubbles as you can before the timer runs out.
Great Puzzle Game....
I like the dreamy, relaxing, sounds & this game is just the type of puzzle a real Octopus (they R highly intelligent) would be engaged in ...Ha ! It gets increasingly tougher as the levels progress, & the Graphics are good.....but $4.99 ?? Wow. I better be getting all sorts of game expansion updates for that price.
