What is it
Bubble Blast Rescue is a fun app where children have to help save the Bubble Blast from their enemies who are keeping them hostage on remote islands!
Players have to to throw Bubble Blast at enemies and push them into the surroundings water; this isn’t always as simple as it sounds as there is a level of protection on some of them! There is a good level of challenge in the app and children have to think about which side to hit the boxes on in order to make them fall into the water
Bubble Blast Boxes requires skills to achieve a perfect score. The better children get at the game, the more stars they will achieve – this leads to the unlocking of the next level. The game has 10 levels which are free (there are options to upgrade and unlock more levels)

What our experts think
We liked the clear and colourful animations and the way in which children were challenged to think about cause and effect. The game got progressively harder meaning that there was an appropriate level of challenge for children – they have to really think about how they would strike the boxes in the correct position; they also had to predict the effect of their actions.
The addition of still images to show children what to do were a good way of giving instructions.
It would be even better if...
The fact you have to complete a level before you move on could lead to some children becoming stuck and giving up – there were some tricky buts which some children may find very difficult!
