Crimson Pine Games, the folks behind Sheep Frenzy 2, Geometry Race and Drifty Chase, have released their latest game. Bubblegum Hero is a simple arcade game where players blow bubbles. The game’s mechanics are simple, tap and hold to blow a bubblegum bubble. The longer you hold, the bigger the bubble gets. If you release while the bubble falls within the designated area, you get points. Otherwise, that big bubblegum bubble you blew blows up in your face. If a bubble falls within the perfect size range, your score multiplier will go up and the game will get harder. The game also features an alternative control scheme that lets players blow into the microphone to blow bubbles (this explains microphone permission being included). With a lot of bigger or more serious games coming in the near future (and South Park: Phone Destroyer), it’s worth remembering that some games out there are just focused on a bit of mobile fun.
Bubblegum Hero also features new types of gum to collect and chew, new heroes, and new environments to play in. From the granny blowing bubbles in the city, to the weightlifter chewing in the gym. Gum and heroes are unlocked using coins earned in the game or purchased through in app purchases, while locations are unlocked by completing previous locations or getting to a certain level.
Bubblegum Hero is free and contains ads and in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s Google Play description and a trailer with more information:
Your main goal is to release a finger from the screen the moment it appears within the dashed circle or it will blast on your face. If you release your finger the moment your balloon hovers over the yellow circle, you will score a perfect bonus and get some coins. Also, if you do this a few times in a row you get a combo multiplier. Beware though, the higher combo you score, the more difficult the game will get.
