Addictive, Nails The Basics
This game absolutely nails the basics of bubble hockey- there isn't much like it, and if you have ever played bubble hockey in your life, you owe it to your childhood to immediately buy and play this game. The physics are fairly accurate, and you will be surprised that a lot of (but not all) of your old, unused bubble hockey skills translate over to this wonderful little game. The ability to add custom teams (which you'll probably add NHL teams using) is just icing on the cake. There are some drawbacks however- you can't really move the puck with players as quickly as in real life without losing the puck, you can't easily handle the puck as in real bubble hockey, and the spinning to hit shots is wildly inconsistent- sometimes you'll hit your sweet spot and rocket a shot home far side- other times that same shot will go wide, or even travel at half the speed for no reason. Still, with a tournament mode and multiplayer, if you have ever played bubble hockey, you absolutely need to give this addictive little gem a shot.
For a game that hasn't had an update since March 2013 this is one of the most solid apps I have ever had throughout the years.
I play it almost everyday. Controls really embrace the touch screen abilities (you should clean your screen every now and again to get a better grip).
I know it is International Hockey but I would like to have a Season mode, a real shootout mode (were we can control the goalie) and for the teams to have skill levels. Also would be nice to pick a set position and have AI help, The option to switch sides and a customize mode so we can place players where we want (not important just would be cool)
Super Chex Bubble Hockey for Your iOS Device
As a kid I was a huge fan of the dome hockey game at arcades. The real deal tables cost about $3000 and at the movement that is just way out of my price range.
Luckily, I came across this app when searching for air hockey games. I was a little concerned that this game hadn't been updated in quite some time but on my iPad 4 with iOS 8 it works fine. Well worth the two dollars for admission.
Now obviously the real table has better controls than a touchscreen device but you get the hang of it after a while. The physics feel realistic. The sounds are nice and I love the instant replay future. I'm looking forward to playing this on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi with someone else.
This is a very well-designed and well thought out video game. I definitely recommend it if you were a fan of the real thing at the arcade.
