If you’re a fan of match 3 games like Candy Crush and Bejeweled, you’ll definitely enjoy Bubble Jeopardy.

Developed by Knick Knack Media, this unique and challenging game puts a new twist on a very popular game genre.

Concept and Gameplay:

The idea behind match 3 games like Bubble Jeopardy is to slide pieces of various shapes and kinds (in this case, balloons) around the game board in order to make three or more of a kind. As you create matches, balloons disappear and new ones enter the screen.

However, unlike other match 3 games where new pieces drop down from the top of the screen, Bubble Jeopardy switches things up a bit by making pieces move upwards. For veteran Candy Crush and Bejeweled players, this definitely takes a bit of time to get used to.

Another piece of the gameplay puzzle that separates Bubble Jeopardy from similar games is that players have a maximum number of moves they can complete for each level . While this isn’t really a factor in low levels, players will definitely notice an increase in difficulty as they reach higher levels.

When it comes to graphics, Bubble Jeopardy has enough detail and animations to keep things interesting, but not distracting enough to frustrate players. Sound effects are also pleasant, so you won’t have to worry about rushing for the volume button after a few minutes of playing.

Bubble Jeopardy features hundreds of assorted levels for players to enjoy, as well as various worlds. You can earn a maximum of 3 stars per level based on how many points you score, and if you fail a level, you’ll lose a life. Lives are replenished every half hour, of you can choose to purchase more.

Also, players can use various power ups, which definitely give an advantage. Bubble Jeopardy includes 3 power ups: spraypaint, stars, and smileys. Spraypaint turns all balloons into one color and clears the board. The star and smiley power up adds one star or one smiley to the game board.

Value:

There is no doubt that the production value of this game is on a par with those of the mega hit, Candy Crush. The question is, can a game from a indie developer reach the same level of success as one from King? We think so and we think you’ll find this one just as entertaining, if not more so.

Bubble Jeopardy is a fun and addictive match 3 game that delivers top-notch gameplay and slick graphics, all with a unique twist that gamers are sure to enjoy.
