Bubble Bash 2 is a fun puzzle game for BlackBerry set across the various landscapes of Africa.
There's nothing new in terms of the gameplay of Bubble Bash 2. It's along the same lines as countless other bubble-bursting BlackBerry titles, including Bubble Birds, Bubble Popper, and Bubble Fusion. The basic premise, as with these other games, is that you need to bash together three or more same-colored balls to make them all explode.
Bubble Bash 2 manages to inject a bit of life into this tired game format. It has a story mode, where you travel across various parts of Africa, completing each level to progress. Levels are varied in terms of the bubble puzzles presented to you, and there's a plot that unfolds as you progress.
The cartoon-style graphics in Bubble Bash 2 are bright and colorful, and the music and sound effects are good too. The loading screens between each level in Bubble Bash 2 are great, presenting you with a different facts about Africa and its wildlife while you wait for the next level to show up.
Although there are lots of levels to get through and achievements to unlock, we found Bubble Bash 2 to be a bit easy. It's generally possible to complete a level in story mode first time, so there's not much challenge involved. There is a survival mode though, where you're challenged to keep bubble bashing for as long as you can stay in the game.
Some users have commented on Bubble Bash 2's App World page that the game runs slowly on older devices and can drain battery quickly if not closed down properly. We experienced no problems running Bubble Bash 2 on a 9930, but just beware of these possible issues if you have an older device.
Bubble Bash 2 is a fun reworking of a classic puzzle game format, which makes for a fun way to pass a short journey.
