Extra bubbles with my pizza


There are some things that are difficult to change; mobile game prices being one of them. There wil always be inherent charges to host and send the games to you. While these cant be reduced, they can give you 2-4-1 offers as some kind of recompense.

I-play have done just that with a casual bundle of Turbo Pizza and Bubble Town. We've reviewed both of these before so I won't bore you with two in-depth reviews (click the links above if really want) but I will give you a quick recap.

Turbo Pizza is a fast paced vision of life in your own pizza parlour. Serve as many customers as you can before it's time to shut up shop. The controls are all important in a game like this. Turbo Pizza can be controlled just from the D-pad and individual stations are not separately numbered. While that should make things easy on your thumbs, it's not so easy on your brain. Overshooting your mark in times of panic is not rare but at least there's always room for improvement. The key to completing the levels and getting the high scores is to combo your moves. Don't focus on serving one customer at a time. Send out all the menus in one go and then move on to cooking and serving all the pizzas before collecting the money.

Bubble Town is a totally different game but still in the casual vein. Fans of Puzzle Bobble/Bubble Bash or anything else with Bubble in the title will instantly recognise the basic concept behind this title but there is a twist to this bubble matcher. The gameplay is slightly different to normal. The game starts with an area full of borbs (bubbles) for you to destroy. You have 12 borbs in your sack to catapult off and once these have been used, the area drops down a level and life then starts getting complicated as the angles get smaller. As with Puzzle Bobble, you can create a long limb of spare balls and when the top part is matched the spare balls will drop and in Bubble Town, they will drop into your sack and prolong the level from dropping. Creating these chains is very important here and you need a slightly different mindset compared to the speed of Puzzle Bobble.

I usually end up reviewing most of the casual games here but that doesn't make me a fan of all their variations. Personally, I'm a big fan of Puzzle Bobble and friends but I don't see the greatness of Diner Dash. However, these 2-4-1 bundles are a good way to essentially get one game for free. If you happen to like both genres then you truly are laughing all the way to the bank.
