Simple but challenging

I really like this game. If you just want a quick game and don't want to think about it too much, you can just take small groups and settle for a lower score. Sometimes I DO just want to zombie out and numb the brain a little, so that's good. Other times I want the challenge of getting the largest possible number of bubbles in a group and get the highest score I can out of each setting and thats even better, so I like this game regardless of my mood. It can be a challenge or just a relaxing time waster.

I don't think the guy who complained because the value of the pieces keeps changing quite gets the point of the game. The more pieces you connect, the value per piece goes up, so your score goes up. The point is to get as many pieces connected as you possibly can before breaking them. That's how you get the best score. It's not possible to get a huge score with each setting--that just makes it more challenging.

Fun But Flawed Scoring

The problem with this game is that not only do the colored pieces vary by arrangement from game to game, but the maximum and minimum values per connected piece vary. Therefore as soon as you get a high piece value (38-40) and you connect a bunch of them and get a high score… it will take you a very long time to even have a shot at besting your own score. The reason is, those high value pieces only show up every 15-20 resets / new games.

To make this better, the values of the pieces should not change, only the arrangements and which color gets the highest value. IOW you can't have a minimum value of 17 on game and 28 the next and another game where there are no values in the 30s, etc. The five values should always be the same or within a vary narrow min-max range in order to feel like you have a shot every game at doing better. I hit one arrangement of 1330 points for a single connected group (40 pts each) and I now can't get close to that without starting a new game over and over many times, until I again get a puzzle with max value 40.

I may have to delete this…it’s way too compelling and addictive.

Discovered this after deleting a different addictive game, which I had deleted so I would focus on more important and necessary tasks at home. Now I sit down for a quick game and suddenly, it seems, I may have lost a couple hours. Anyway, I really like this game but wish it allowed you to replay the same set as a practice option. When I was doing the Hoyle Bridge game, I could go back and rebid with the ficticious partners and see what worked better. That made me a much better player in actually bridge games with friends. Well, I guess there would not be the same carry over value here but, when I sometimes come to realize that I have completely cut off a connection, it would be nice to be able to back track and see what alternative approach may have worked better. (It would be fine with me if the do-over games did not count to the max scores..
