Bubble Town 2 is a bubble popping game for the iPhone. Players progress through a moderate story mode to find out that strange things are happening in Bubble Town. You will progress through a decent lengthen story mode to try and discover what is happening to your quaint town and need to solve a number of bubble pop puzzles in order to do so.

The controls are straight forward and there isn’t much room for error; players slide their finger across the bottom of the screen to adjust the angle of their shot and tap the screen to shoot. If players can’t find a match of same coloured orbs, they can shake the iPhone to change the colour of the orb about to be fired. You will also take advantage of a number of power-ups that you will find in the levels.

The visuals are well done and the vibrantly coloured orbs are a treat. The sound is good, if not a bit muddy in quality. The game features a few different levels, like normal levels, rotation levels and cave levels, but players will also battle against a number of boss characters which makes for some challenging gameplay.

Bubble Town 2 is a solid bubble pop game that can be played by almost any aged player. The only major issue with the game is that there isn’t too much that really stands out here. The 5 bosses are definitely refreshing but throughout the other 40 levels, players may find the game a bit repetitive and simple. But if you’re a fan of Bust-A-move and other similar genre titles, then it’s still a worthwhile title to try out.
