I grew up with this amazing game. I remember playing it on my dads phone when I was 5. It is such an experience and each level is a fun new adventure. When it gets difficult it takes time and practice you will get it eventually. over all epic game. I wish there were more like this.
I found out about bubble bounce because I was watching the news and I saw you and your game. This inspired me to create my own games, but then I wondered how a kid like me could make an app. I studied and then I made a couple games and thought back to how you made such an amazing game.
I'm amazed that a 14 year old kid made this game but that doesn't change the fact that this game isn't that fun. A lot of people love it but the game gets boring after a while. You just do the same thing over and over trying to get the bubble ball to the flag. I wouldn't recommend this game to a friend. I will still be looking at his future games though!
Bubble ball is a cute game,but it is boring too. Nay Games LLC, I think you should add more sound, color,and a little bit of action. I will rate more when you add those. If it stays like this it would be a TOTAL waste of my $0.99!!! Oh, and another thing: MORE LEVELS!!!!! So please add the stuff I said or my dad will be SOO MAD! Plus, I am not afraid to delete it from my iPad2 to show how boring it already is. I recommend you change it to something similar like, fastball and fastball2. Remember to change or I will be mad that I wasted my money!! At this time it deserves 3 stars I guess. When you add those it deserves 5 stars!!!;.(
Bubble ball is a lot of fun to play. The levels are creative and many a challenge to complete. A must download for everyone. The programmer is 14, the program is 4000 lines long. I applaud this young man for his outstanding first entry into the app store. I am a high school computer science teacher with one of my classroom topics covering programming (VBscript, VisualBasic, QB64). It's a real challenge to get today's Xbox addicted youth to actually sit down and think. Thank you Robert for giving me some motivational material to use in my classroom. I'm looking forward to your next app, you have a real knack for this.
This is an OK game. It's fun for a while, until one of two things happen: 1.) You beat it, there's only 21 levels, needs more, it's only version 1.0 and when there's problems like this and number two they need to be fixed. 2.) Very, very poor touch sensitivity. Sometimes you'll be able to move the pieces about as you like, but a lot of the time you'll have to try 1,2,3,4,5, and maybe even 6 times to move it somewhere and them have to do that again to move it somewhere else. Also, if you want to rotate the piece your working with, you have to tap it a whole lot of time to get it where you please. But, OH-NO! you just tapped it one to many times?!?!?! Never fear, just tap it again and again to get it there. Three stars for this game is being very generous. The graphics are border-line awful, there's only 21 levels, and with very poor touch sensitivity, it's a good thing this is a free app, it wouldn't be worth $.99. My opinion, since its free, go ahead and try it, but it won't be worth the space it takes up for that long.
You have both a free & pro version so why do you keep updating the "free" version with pay-for add-on packs? I understand you want to make money like any other app maker, but even the biggest app developing companies offer more free levels with updates now & again. Your last 2 or 3 (at least) updates have only offered more levels on the in-app purchase pack. That's just greedy. You're a teenage kid, so whoever is guiding your business decisions has a lot to learn themselves. If I see that you're willing to offer your free users some extra levels, I'd be a lot more willing to pay for the add-on packs or pro version. Only 2 stars until we start seeing some new levels for us "free" version users.
There was an issue with the app opening in the new iPad. I sent an email and got an almost immediate response. They were aware of the issue and were working to resolve it. Great thanks.. Then something amazing happened, a while later I get another email telling Me it's been resolved and approved by apple. The updated version should be out soon. When can you say you've gotten a reply from a "problem" email, let alone another email informing of the fix?? Thanks again for you responses and willingness to resolve issues...w
I was very impressed with this game at first, and the fact that it's developed by a fellow 14 year-old is super cool. But it feels incomplete, with no music or background, it gets boring quickly. Also, the way Nay is monetizing it is ridiculous, the game has level packs, but you need to release the occasional free pack to keep your customers with you. The game also has numerous bugs that need fixing first, it's been more than a year and he hasn't fixed many bugs. It's honestly not worth buying the pro version until we get bug fixes and a better UI. Overall, decent game, better go with the free version for now.
I love it, I like that there is luck involved, it's just a basic game with pretty good physics. I love the simplicity too. Only thing, there is a glitch where the ball looks like it's spinning, it will jump in and out of the walls and glitches around real jerky and the green arrows won't affect the ball when it's spinning like that, it's a rare thing it seems but sometime it happens and there is no other way to beat the level so you just have to deal with it. Pretty much a fun and basic game which, like all others, has a glitch or two.
Found this game while browsing. It's awesome! Our whole family enjoys it- ages 13-44. Even my engineer husband has fun with it. I love that there are more than one or two ways to solve the levels, too! Boring? Only if you don't understand how to play it, (which isn't really that hard to figure out) or you have ADHD and trouble with being patient. It's nice that you can spend one minute with it or an hour and still have fun! None of us have had any problems with this game. We look forward to future updates! (btw we use the free version).
Downloaded the update on my iPad, but now, after playing each new level the game says you've completed, so you have to go back to level select each time to get the next level. Level 66 (for example -- the second one I tried) has a bug where if fails to run after one unsuccessful attempt, forcing you to go back to select the level again each time it fails. This I think is part of the 99 cent in-app purchase. In any case, bugs need to be fixed -- the initial free version seemed fairly simple but worked flawlessly, but quality has gone down significantly.
I give the game 5 stars because it really is a great concept, and I believe that the developer should flesh out another Bubble Ball game that has better puzzles and a more catching playability. This Bubble Ball game is pretty fun for a little bit, but the increasingly hard puzzles just aren't there. The graphics are below par for even this simple game. While it is sort of a letdown, I would recommend this game and recommend everyone rate it high so we can get even a better game out of it!
I have been reading these reviews for a while now and would like to point out that I am quite amused. To all of you older people out there that are completely technologically inept, it is not that amazing of a feat to write a simple game such as this. Just because you have absolutely no experience in the field doesn't mean you should bias your views on the fact that the developer is 14. To the person who said the number one free app is developed by scientists: "science is to computer science as hydrodynamics is to plumbing."
I burned through the levels very fast. Most levels really only need 1-2 shapes. Not all that are provided. Sometimes the physics are wrong too. some shapes are very hard to move from the top of the screen. The iPhone wants to pull down the quick bar. Needs to mark levels based on number of shapes used. Ie, put a 1 in the star if only 1 shape was needed. That will quickly give some replay value. Needs more levels. I know there is a pro upgrade but it's still not enough. I finished the first set so quickly, the pro will not take long enough to make it worth the $1.
I enjoyed the game. Some of the later levels require creative thinking to get through them. Reminded me vaguely of Lemmings. Constructive criticism... the elements were difficult to select at times. This was inconsistent. Sometimes you could pick a piece and move it with ease. Other times it took several to many attempts to pick a piece in order to move it. Had fun playing it on the plane. Keep the levels coming.
