I couldn’t help but to chuckle when I started playing this game, given how I spent my childhood on the old Nintendo Gameboy systems playing Bust-A-Move and that I was a huge fan of the ball busting game genre. Bubble Galaxy With Buddies took a new spin to the game,

With Bubble Galaxy With Buddies, players can engage in the timeless classic with their friends but instead of having the games take place in real time, the app uses the same approach seen in games like Draw Something whereby the initiator completes the round first while the challenger follows suit afterwards both at their own leisure. This adds a form of convenience for both parties as players do not have to wait for each other to be available for rounds to take place. This turn-based system scores extra points in my book.

Of course, give the app’s status as a free app, upgrades and boosts are available via in-app purchases for a fee.

There is hardly anything to talk about regarding gameplay, given how this genre has been repeatedly used and that Bubble Galaxy With Buddies  is honestly not much of an exception in regards to this genre.

I would definitely recommend this app though, for the sake of being able to play alongside friends and strangers instead of an ever so mundane artificial intelligence.

One thing I figured out too with Bubble Galaxy With Buddies is that story lines or thick plots do not matter in a great game anymore.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes

Learning Curve:Moderate

Who Is It For:Casual gamers who wish to engage in a decent game with their friends in real life

What I Like:Being able to play with actual people rather than just strangers

What I Don't Like:Game is a little pushy on in-app purchases

Final Statement:A classic nonetheless, but what's better than to share it with a friend?
