I like Bubble Mania, and I'm glad I got to test it then get the real release! However, I don't like the idea of using gems, because how do you earn them? But anyway, I got down to my last 10 bubbles and a pop up scared me. It read: BUY 8 MORE BUBBLES FOR 6 GEMS. I almost tapped it because I enabled the SHOOT button. A gem trap already!

You have to get to island four. Not level 6, unfortunately :(

That said, i'm on the fourth island and the goal in bs, fs and rs doesn't recognise it. It still says my progress is zero...so not sure what is going on here.

I didn't even get this goal. I guess they keep skipping me on purpose or something.

Yep, same here, not recognized in Farm, Pet Hotel, Pet Shop, or Dragon Story. I'm quitting until this is fixed.

No, but this thread was created to warn others and open their eyes and maybe even TeamLava's. I've seen other threads talking about Bubble Mania as a goal though.

Just think of it like an old fashioned arcade bubble shooter like Bubble Bobble. When you lose, you can insert more quarters to continue. If you are good, you can play longer without quarters, and, you can actually play for free if you are patient (allowance of quarters?). You can ask your mom for more quarters if you want to keep playing even more. :P

You earn gems by getting 3 stars in the levels

If that's the case, my 10 gems should've shot up then!

I'm now on level 4-4 and I've only recieved 15 gold that was for buying a gold dragon in dragon story, after I reached island 4 in bubbles.

Your feedback has been noted, but the pop-up and the shoot button on my screen are decently placed with enough space between them. If you're on a really difficult level, you may prefer to have the option to buy more bubbles if you're close to beating it, instead of losing and repeating the same level multiple times.

Not really because i lost track how many balls I had left... Then went to shoot and guess what 9 gems lost....

Thank you for your response. I do prefer saving my gems for the future and I'd rather fail and spend 30 minutes waiting to recharge though. I also don't like the pop-up at the end to buy more bubbles for gems before hitting the quit button or the replay button.

Hi bigbux3, thanks for your feedback. In our testing we did not hit this button often and we certainly did not intend for people to hit this accidentally. However there seems to be feedback in the forum and our reviews that some people are still hitting this button accidentally, though this seems to only be a problem in the "aim and shoot" mode and not in the "tap and shoot" mode. The dev team is currently discussing if we can improve this in a future update. We are continuing to test this scenario internally. Please continue to give feedback as we take community input very seriously for our games.

Might I ask, since you're a developer, why aren't you ever on the forums?

I'm sure you'd prefer we spend our time fixing bugs rather than writing posts. :) Our many community managers like Daojin & GroupMagma do an excellent job managing the forums, and I can tell you that all of our developers read the forum feedback regularly, even if we don't always have time to write posts.

Alrighty then! Thanks.

There's no Reward for downloading other games except in Pet Hotel Story. You don't get gems either for reaching a certain level in Pet Hotel Story. Then you get a small task which earns you gems.
