Bubble Trouble Shooter

Bubble Trouble Shooter – iPhone App Review

Today we’re taking a look at an iPhone app called Bubble Trouble Shooter. It’s an iPhone game that combines characteristics of Peggle and Candy Crush. Now I was never a huge fan of Candy Crush, but I did enjoy Peggle every now and then.

In Bubble Trouble Shooter, you have to match (at least) 3 bubbles in a row to get them to pop. Once they pop, they clear. Once you clear all of the colored bubbles in each level, you can move on to the next level. The levels get very difficult very quickly.

There are other characters that you can unlock within the game. If you’re impatient, you can purchase them with real money. Otherwise, you can unlock them by hitting certain levels within the game. For example, at level 40, you unlock Jack, the monkey character. I’m still working to unlock him.

There are over 800 levels. That’s a lot of levels! And new levels every month. For example right now there are special Valentines levels that you can play. There are also boss levels that you can play as well where you save different animals.

The core gameplay revolves around matching the 3 colored bubbles, but on top of this there’s a life-system similar to Candy Crush. You get 5 hearts and when you lose a level, you lose a heart. When you’re out you have to wait until they refill which takes a little bit of time.

If you’re a fan of connect-3 type games, you will really enjoy this one. Personally, I think there are too many match 3/connect 3 games on the AppStore. This one though, was pretty fun to play and review. And since it’s free, there’s not really any reason not to download it and give it a try. While Bubble Trouble Shooter may not be the first to the connect 3 genre, it’s one of the best ones I’ve played.

Brick Your iPhone Jan. 1, 1970

Jan. 1, 1970 iPhone Bug | BRICKS YOUR IPHONE | DO NOT TRY

The fastest way to brick your iPhone has been discovered! This bug will permanently brick your iPhone so we urge you to not try this. We will not be held liable for any damages incurred on yourself or your device after trying this. To do the glitch, apparently all you need to do is set your iPhone’s date back to January 1, 1970. Then reboot the phone. After this, you will no longer be able to start the device, as it will be stuck on the Apple Logo loading screen indefinitely. This only works on the 64-bit architecture iPhones, supposedly, so that means it only affects iPhone 5S and up. Again, DO NOT TRY THIS. Check out our video below.

MMA Federation™

MMA Federation™ Coming Soon to iPhone

From AAA to casual – Industry legend Rick Giolito talks about his first casual mobile sports title

Manchester, UK — December 3, 2015  Rick Giolito today speaks about his experience going from AAA console titles to developing his first casual mobile title as Studio Head of 360 Studios, producing its first mobile title, MMA Federation™. Giolito is well known in the games industry for being a legendary Executive Producer and recipient of five AIAS (Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences) Awards, including Sports Game of the Year and the First-Person Shooter of the Year award for Knockout Kings™ and Medal of Honor™.

“I made my career by creating visceral, authentic, cinematic experiences and now I’m taking that same passion to the mobile game space with 360 Studio’s MMA Federation™” says Giolito.  
 

MMA Federation™ is a real time, Mixed Martial Arts mobile strategy fighting game in which players compete against friends and opponents, world-wide. It includes a deep career mode,  authentic promoter events and global tournaments. Players join real MMA teams from around the world, improve their skills by mastering a multitude of martial arts disciplines and  customize their fighters with genuine MMA gear. In 360 Studios’  quest to create the most authentic MMA game possible, Giolito was reminded of his work on Knockout Kings™ for EA:
“Mixed Martial Arts is similar to Boxing in that there is no governing body,” Giolito explains. “Games based on traditional leagues such as Football, Baseball or Soccer have licensing partners such as the NFL, MLB or FIFA. Typically, these bodies expect  strict simulations of the sport. The lack of a governing body and the game approval rights they hold leaves us free to stretch boundaries in terms of look, feel and gameplay, and allows us to create a game with much broader appeal.  There’s simply more freedom in both style and expression and we take advantage of that with MMA Federation™.”

This freedom allowed Giolito to build on his past experiences and create a fighting game that combines the best of both the AAA and mobile worlds:

“To be honest, I took a hard look at the recipe I used to create EASports’ Knockout Kings™ and updated it to a new platform and new time,” says Giolito. “Mobile games didn’t exist when I made KO Kings but the fundamentals remain the same. Create a highly addictive, easy to play and fun fighting experience. Have an artistic style rooted in authenticity that appeals to gamers outside of the strict simulation seekers. Allow players to go head-to-head in real time and pile on the rewards. This is a AAA game all the way. The quality of the assets and the experience is second to none. I’m so proud of the work we’ve done at 360 Studios.”

MMA Federation™ is made for mobile and tablets and is available for download on Google Play™ and Apple App Store℠ in Canada. The game will be launched in the USA, UK, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland on January 14th.

This looks like it’s going to be a really cool game! Can’t wait to see the final product in January. Stay tuned!
