But it is so ..check the app store... Maybe they are tweaking it and going to make it cost to download

This game can be fun and entertaining, but they've made it impossibly hard. Plus, you have to wait to earn energy which takes 30 minutes. I wouldn't recommend it.

Actually, they often get put in the App Store for around a day, then temporarily removed then relaunched.

Mods are volunteers, so they're definitely entitled to their own opinion. For the sake of keeping to their unknown Mod rules, however, they probably have to not say anything too bad about TL - plus it's normally best to keep out of like/dislike discussions that may get heated.
SuperMods (employees) probably don't play them that much - after all day looking after them, it's most likely a relief not to play them at home. However, they're almost certainly forbidden from saying things like "yeah, I understand, I hate it too" because it looks very bad press if even the employees dislike it.

not sure what you mean by forced to like? As a player mod, I can choose and play the games that I like.
I do try all TL games and keep playing the ones I like.
I cannot vote yet, because it has not been released to me yet.



This game has not been fully released in all areas yet.

Well I think that since GG, KP, and TR???(haven't seen her/him ever since I joined) are player mods, they'd you know like the games they play. Employees, I dont know because they work for this, myabe they play these games on the side?

I voted yes, and this is why.

1.) It is a fun and engaging game.
2.) It gets my 10 yr old boy away from killing zombies, creepers, and evil sith lords
3.) I think the bunny is cute, although a bit evil at times (will explain below).
4.) It is different from any other TL game and I have no problem allowing my youngest child (10) to play it. No chance of him being harassed on walls and etc....

Now, this has been my experience since I downloaded the game. It is quite challenging at times, but also easy at others. My son loves the bunny one minute and in the next claims quite vehemently that the cute little pink bunny is EVIL and must be destroyed as soon as possible. That really makes me giggle, insanely. Although I hate to agree with my son, there are times I'd like to give the cute little pink bunny a slow and gruesome death as well. We both despised all of Level 4. But level 5 was shot through like it was a knife going through butter. Level 6 has my son not only hating the bunny, but wanting to destroy my iPad as well, he feels the poison bubbles are there just to annoy him. I fear for my iPads life, so refuse to allow him to play this game unless I'm at his side. I have this vision in my head of finding it in teeny tiny little pieces with him standing over it with a hammer in his hand and an evil grin on his face. NOT a pretty picture.

I'm not sure what the real age group TL is looking for here, but I think that most kids would really enjoy this game. I know others complained about the energy thing, and I actually disagree on that point. I think that some levels can be so frustrating that you NEED to be out of energy so that you have a chance to calm down before ruining your pretty little device. It is sort of like a time-out. :p Well that and I fear for the little cute pink bunnies life.

With that being said though, I think the wait time for energy to replenish should be cut in half, as most kids don't have the patience, or really even the time, to wait that long. This game is great at teaching patience to kids, but they also have short attention spans and if they have to wait TOO long, they'll move on and not come back for a day or two, or at all. Not only that, but they may only be able to play at certain times, so having to wait a good deal of time for the energy to replenish may mean they only get to play for a short period of time. I know many of the kids in my area that would LOVE a game like this are restricted to certain times to play games, plus with it being summer many are at day camps or in the pools.............When they are allowed that 1 or 2 hour game time, it gets used up pretty quickly if 30 minutes of it is waiting to play again.

Anyways, that is my .02 worth and I do hope that TL will offer this game to more than just iOS. Half of the kids I know have iPods, but the other half have Android Kindles or Tablets, so it would be great to see it fully rolled out to all platforms.

You can buy extra shots... Or sometimes more bomb which explode everything you hit with them... Or anti venom which you don't loose 3 shots when you explode them( I find this one the most useful)

By the was the last level is 10-6

How can you play it so much when you fail the level and run out of energy and need to wait to recharge? That's my biggest complaint about this game. If there was maybe a SHORTER waiting limit or no limit at all, I'd be sold all the way!

I have the jar of marbles game on my iPad but i get bored with it so thanks TL this is much more interactive and fun! I'm waiting for more energy ran out after half an hour nearly finished level 2 will go on again later!

Better than mobsters that was a very odd game I tried but deleted

I'm playing it just to complete a BS goal. Need to get to island 4, howeve, I have run out of energy after island 2. I would like to congratulate the programmer who invented that GEM TRAP right at the point where you launch the bubble. Sheesh!

I agree with this queentina. My nephews would love this game but they wouldn't ave the time to wait for the energy to refill either. Nor do I. I have several games on my device and to be honest this one promises to get deleted once I get to the fourth island and hopefully get my gems in bs, farm and rs. If the energy time was shorter then maybe the game would stay on. And i certainly won't be buying gems either so...

Well yes, but if someone wanted to do this quickly he/she might buy gems to get more energy. I'm on the third island and out of energy with a wait to replenish time of about 20 mins to half hour. I had one energy remaining, opened one level on the third island changed my mind before throwing even one ball, went to another easier level to see if i could finish that one and earn more energy points and coins but alas i was told that my energy was depleted- just for opening that first level on island three. So be careful of that. If i had spent real money for that 1 energy and lost it by merely opening the level i would have been hopping mad.

06-23-12, 03:50 PM
The main reason I voted no was the whole concept of recharging. I'm only getting to level 4 for the goal on the other games. At the point of the recharging I've already lost interest in the game and there's nothing exciting to make me really want to come back. There is another game I can go pop bubbles all day long and not have to wait to recharge. That will keep my interest as long as I want it to............

Also some levels are crazy hard, you need some sort of point aided help to pass them. Waiting for enough points is like waiting for paint to dry and add on the recharging and we've had enough and moved on to the other bubble popping game if that's what we really feel like doing. Not spending real money to get more "lives" to play a game, that is insanity.

I did have that issue last night but this morning went into my games and it recognized it.

I thought I'd hate this game but I quite like it. I don't mind the energy wait personally. I like having a few games that can only be played short periods of time sometimes. but I can see how a kid might get frustrated or bored with it.

I voted no because Level 4-6 is physically impossible to beat. I did the math with 3 configurations I got, and to break through the balls that are displayed on the first section alone would take 82 if they came in the right order, and the rest of the screen would have required about 2x more, yet you get 75

Anyone knows how to score high? I'm OCD, I've been getting 3stars for the first 3 levels or 18/18. Im having problems with 4-3, 4-5, & 4-6. I know that if you complete the task with less shoots or toss, seem like it doesn't matter, you dont receive much points...so, I don't get it. I know this because i went back to the easy levels like 1 or 2 and I'll complete it with more balls leftover than before.

I already finished the quest and earned my gems for reaching island 4 in this game. It wasn't that hard but I had played different versions of this game before so that counts I guess. The funny thing though is that I'm addicted to this game now and can't stop playing it. This didn't happen with the other quest games (I downright hated poker) and I'm pleasantly surprised by it. It's unlikely that I will spend any money on this since all the cash I'll ever spend on a Team Lava game will go to my restaurant but I doubt I'll need to and I doubt I'll put it down until I reach the end or hit a wall I can't pass.

Hey i dont't know if this will work for you. But the goal that i got saidreach island four in bubble mania. If your having trouble with 3-6.. The colors pink,red, and purple will make you pass. That's how i finised the goal.

tonynpatty89
06-24-12, 02:37 PM
I have some advice for those complaining that it's hard for them to progress in bubble mania.........

Were you to ever get stuck in a level, do not panic! Every time you retry a round, a difficulty setting will automatically be placed.. This means keep trying until you are placed in a difficulty setting right for you.(keep trying)
There are a few levels were you need to buy bonuses in order to complete and difficulty settings wouldn't matter too much but are still in play... You need skill which takes practice, again.(keep trying)

I didn't want to hit reply on queentina's post. My good sir your both ridiculous, there absolutely nothing wrong with this game. It takes skill to get through harder levels end of story. I think both of you are or have 10 year olds who get mad about not being able to save the bunny! Instead of complaining about the energy times it takes to replenish, perhaps you could have asked, what can I tell my kid that plays a strategy game which gives you the option to continue if you fail with real money?
I wonder what you guys will do when your kid or yourself go to game rooms and are not able to get passed level 2 and spend several coins/dollars to finish.. I wish I would own that machine that is about to make me rich lol.

Excuse me, but I don't think you understood what either bobbyrae or myself was saying. For your information, when I wrote my original post the game hadn't been out in the Market for everyone yet, nor had it been upgraded to what you see as the game now. It only went to level 10-6 and there was no gem trap or a way to replenish your energy EXCEPT for waiting the 30 minutes.

With that being said, my original point is that MANY kids are given a certain time limit to play games daily. Just like MANY kids are given a certain time limit to watch TV daily. If 1/2 of their time to play a game is spent WAITING to replenish energy, they won't bother with the game and just move onto something that they CAN play within the time limits their parents give them. THAT was my point. I don't mind having to wait for energy to replenish, I just think the length of time is a tad too long.

I'm not sure why you chose my post to make your comments about, since there were/are many many other posts of people stating the energy issue is WHY they voted NO for this game. I actually voted YES. :rolleyes:

I wish I could change my vote now though, as I would have to vote it NO because TL instituted a gem trap that is completely unnecessary. That pop-up is right were we need to shoot the ball, and since there is a pop-up at the end of the game (all your balls are gone), they don't need one when you're almost out of balls as well.

Luckily, we've found another bubble game that me and my son enjoy, so we'll be uninstalling this one and only playing that one. :cool:

Its not bad. I tried it for the free gems of course, but when I started playing it I was like "okay, this isnt a bad game." However, I mgoing to delete it after going to island 4.

I voted no because Level 4-6 is physically impossible to beat. I did the math with 3 configurations I got, and to break through the balls that are displayed on the first section alone would take 82 if they came in the right order, and the rest of the screen would have required about 2x more, yet you get 75

Hi kuhjager. Thanks for playing our game! Every level is beatable, and we have internally tested every single level. That said, feedback is valuable and we are in the process of tuning levels that are too easy to be harder and levels that are too hard to be a bit better. We do want there to be a bit of a challenge or the game will be boring, so we are taking a look at every level to see how we can improve them.

That's like telling me to breed and wait breed and wait in dragon story. Some of us just don't have patience-

Agreed! :)

6 dollars to get free gems? How many gems did you get free? You could have bought at least 24 gems in the other games for 6$

I hate how we have to spend money on "free games." It just isn't right! I can't remember how many gems I got for free. The other games are definitely better.

Thank you for your thoughts and feedback on the Energy mechanic. I'll definitely forward them to the team for discussion.

The Energy mechanic is designed to force you to carefully think about every shot. If you just randomly shoot bubbles without a care and try to speed through the islands, you won't have any fun. If you carefully shoot and strategize where you want to use your bubbles, you have a chance to gain an Energy by achieving 3 stars in the level. This forces you to take your time and carefully plan your shots so you get 3 stars and the extra energy to continue playing.

I have been stuck on lvl 6-4 for 3 days, i am starting to get ticked off as i have thought every shot through, and waiting 20 mins for a energy is a joke. I have re done all lvls to pay for extra bubbles or the anti toxin and still fall short of balls

That's me with 6-6. Just cannot get past that one either.

Excuse me, but I don't think you understood what either bobbyrae or myself was saying. For your information, when I wrote my original post the game hadn't been out in the Market for everyone yet, nor had it been upgraded to what you see as the game now. It only went to level 10-6 and there was no gem trap or a way to replenish your energy EXCEPT for waiting the 30 minutes.

With that being said, my original point is that MANY kids are given a certain time limit to play games daily. Just like MANY kids are given a certain time limit to watch TV daily. If 1/2 of their time to play a game is spent WAITING to replenish energy, they won't bother with the game and just move onto something that they CAN play within the time limits their parents give them. THAT was my point. I don't mind having to wait for energy to replenish, I just think the length of time is a tad too long.

Oh well excuse me.. Because I don't think you understood what I was saying either. My point was that TL is not new and regards to previous games is we're they got the idea to make games the way they do.. Otherwise they wouldn't have launched it. If Tl changed the energy timer to 20Min was so that we could retry 5 times after an hour instead of two because they knew it might not be convenient for all players..At the same time like a GM said it will prevent the game from being boring if you just mindlessly finish the game without putting much effort.. Also they changed in the update so that you get 1 energy after earning two stars in stead of three..

To finish this discussion I suggest you train your kid not to fall for the "gem trap" and if you will buy gems for this game please make sure it benefits you because that's what they are for.. If you don't plan to buy gems then don't argue about no "gem trap"

Your going to hit another wall at 7-2 and so on lol. Luckily I finished mine and now I'm just attempting three stars on all levels.

I voted yes, and this is why.

1.) It is a fun and engaging game.
2.) It gets my 10 yr old boy away from killing zombies, creepers, and evil sith lords
3.) I think the bunny is cute, although a bit evil at times (will explain below).
4.) It is different from any other TL game and I have no problem allowing my youngest child (10) to play it. No chance of him being harassed on walls and etc....

Now, this has been my experience since I downloaded the game. It is quite challenging at times, but also easy at others. My son loves the bunny one minute and in the next claims quite vehemently that the cute little pink bunny is EVIL and must be destroyed as soon as possible. That really makes me giggle, insanely. Although I hate to agree with my son, there are times I'd like to give the cute little pink bunny a slow and gruesome death as well. We both despised all of Level 4. But level 5 was shot through like it was a knife going through butter. Level 6 has my son not only hating the bunny, but wanting to destroy my iPad as well, he feels the poison bubbles are there just to annoy him. I fear for my iPads life, so refuse to allow him to play this game unless I'm at his side. I have this vision in my head of finding it in teeny tiny little pieces with him standing over it with a hammer in his hand and an evil grin on his face. NOT a pretty picture.

I'm not sure what the real age group TL is looking for here, but I think that most kids would really enjoy this game. I know others complained about the energy thing, and I actually disagree on that point. I think that some levels can be so frustrating that you NEED to be out of energy so that you have a chance to calm down before ruining your pretty little device. It is sort of like a time-out. :p Well that and I fear for the little cute pink bunnies life.

With that being said though, I think the wait time for energy to replenish should be cut in half, as most kids don't have the patience, or really even the time, to wait that long. This game is great at teaching patience to kids, but they also have short attention spans and if they have to wait TOO long, they'll move on and not come back for a day or two, or at all. Not only that, but they may only be able to play at certain times, so having to wait a good deal of time for the energy to replenish may mean they only get to play for a short period of time. I know many of the kids in my area that would LOVE a game like this are restricted to certain times to play games, plus with it being summer many are at day camps or in the pools.............When they are allowed that 1 or 2 hour game time, it gets used up pretty quickly if 30 minutes of it is waiting to play again.

Anyways, that is my .02 worth and I do hope that TL will offer this game to more than just iOS. Half of the kids I know have iPods, but the other half have Android Kindles or Tablets, so it would be great to see it fully rolled out to all platforms.
It is a cat not a bunny

Having Trouble With The First Level Of Island 7. Does Anyone know how to beat it?

The game is sometimes fun, and I love the bright graphics, but most of the time it's really hard and it takes forever to finally complete it. And in order to earn all 5 energy points back you have to wait an hour...

I love it:) but I've hit a wall at level 77:(
Also saying that, I quit RS and BS- reason 1, NO AUSSIE FLAG and 2, I'm sick of the goals and pop up adds, I was playing those games for 2 years... Now this game also has goals and pop ups!!!! Come TL, enough is enough!
