Decent variant of the generic Puzzle Bobble game design, no complaints or anything. Could be a bit more pretty and less default grayish silver and stuff and it would be nice to have more music but it's still decent. If it's your thing and isn't too expensive. Definitely worth the free I paid for it.

I like it for what it is, got it in the" buy these 18 games you would never waste you money on individually" pack during the summer sale. Never listened to music always used own tunes, gamplay is pretty basic besides the somtiems buggy physics.

Overall pretty meh, but if you have leftover money from opening csgo cases why not.

Intergalactic Bubbles is a bubblepopper

+It's main virture are physics. Floppy bubbles make for great plays, and being able to shot something falling down is nice addition
+It's talent tree, while simple, is nice. Skills are quite balanced, each serving different niche (though rocket is a little better than others IMO) , and they combine later in the game
+It's quite fun
+It's cheap

Bubble breaking sounds, while good, could be better. They might be annoying for some. Neutral

-Underscores IN EVERYTHING, from the menu to talent tree to how to play to each single thing other than playing are so obnoxious. Also, talents aren't described, which isn't good, especially if i were to show this game to a ~5years old
-Music is VERY repetitive, and it's VERY bad.
-Randomness of levels is annoying, it shouldn't be that way.
-More colors should appear earlier.
-For game with such a nice talent tree, collectible powerup bubbles would be nice addition (and are quite common in other "space" bubblepopper games)

Don't get me wrong, it's nice game, especially on few first levels. Physics are really funny. But the game shows laziness on almost every step. I wonder how it isn't beta. And developer isn't making any patches. I wouldn't recommend to buy it, but if you get it it isn't THAT bad

4/10

This is a Puzzle Bobble clone with the addition of basic physics and an upgrade system. Both are neat ideas, but the game needs more polish. As it is, there are better options for this kind of game.

This game is so bad, it ruined my mood.

The physics effect might be a nice thing. But everything lacks in the sound and visuals department. This stuff just looks barren, and the sound/music is painful.

Recommended to spend that 1 buck on something else, anything else.

This game is Bust A Move : Intergalactic Version.
Perhaps this game can have versus mode in the advance. It will be fun!

Not as polished as it could be but for a bubble shooter I quite like it. And I like the 'wobbly' physics. Adds a bit of character to the game rather than just a standard grid. It's got your match 3 with some power ups and a skill tree. Great time killer.

I approve :-)

I won't say anything new about 'Bubbles', since they were around longer than the majority of gamers nowadays. Time-killing, casual, and the bouncy-sticky features add something fresh to the classic game.

This bubble breaker game is a rigged bingo machine.

Firstly, the bubbles have magnetic physics, which although sound helpful are actually frustrating, since each bubble's magnetic field is painfully small. This mean that sometimes you end up "missing" that massive combo chain of two chains because the magnetism has decided to teeter towards one chain rather than both of them, although sometimes this magnetism works in your favo(u)r, making the game basically play itself for you at least a few combos before all is still again. However, such mechanic is very annoying due to its unreliable nature, especially when you are trying to complete a level in the fewest moves possible.

It also doesn't help that the camera is placed in a "at the side of the table" perspective, which makes it hard to see which balls are connected to each other by their weak magnetic fields.

There are also power ups that should help you destroy a bunch of bubbles per use, which I haven't even been able to use because the energy recharge rate is too slow to get a power up before I end up completing a level. (You can upgrade the power ups and your energy's recharge rate etc. but you don't even need them due to how the game tends to play itself often, eliminating the need for power ups in the first place!)

Overall, I have not enjoyed this game very much due to its unpredictable nature.

I do not recommend this game at all, even on sale or in a bundle; You can play countless better bubble breakers online for absolutely free!

'Innovative'

The game has some good points. The 2.5-D and textures are very well done, very pretty. Physics has some notable problems, balls will end up almost but not quite touching or overlapping.
Very few colors at the beginning, random level creation makes it a very tedious experience.
Not bad especially considering how cheap it is, but inferior to most other connect-3-balls games.

A 'bubble shooter' type game, with weird wobbly physics, weird wobbly repetitive music and tons of identical levels.

The game "Intergalactic Bubbles" is a bubblepopper wich was not worth the money. If you want to play a bubblepopper you could just play a browser version and you would have better Artwork and more fun. I would not recommend to buy this game.

A simple puzzle bobble clone without the look or charm of the originals but it will do in a pinch if you want to burst some bubbles for a quarter.

Intergalactic Bubbles is inspired by a game I don't remember the name but I can still see the cursor, the dinosaur and the bubble being sent. It's not Bubble Bobble though I think there was an arcade version with a different gameplay. Anyway, I've known this game under different names, the last one being on a giveaway game where the minigame is called Blink Shooter and is my favorite.

The goal is to send colored balls on others of the same color to explode them and make sure that the board is cleaned before they're descending and touch your line. By doing so, you can also get rid of balls under them if they're not attached to another one that will support everything. Here, you have also the balls moving naturally, like if there was gravity and can also tied themselves to others and if they're the same color, you'll have another explosion that will probably help you to reach your goal.

Intergalactic Bubbles is challenging because if you want to upgrade bonuses, you need to collect a sort of stars (that look more like a planet on fire anyway). Each level completed will give you one but if you do it less than the number if balls sent that will be displayed, you'll collect 3 or 2 stars.

The game is kinda long if you're aiming like me to a 3 stars. The more you advance, more balls will be on the board or a new color is added.

While the graphics aren't spectacular and really simple, the soundtrack is correct.

I suppose that some people will be deceived by the lack of features, but it's enough for me. I find the game a little too slow, mainly in the speed at which the board is descending.

If you love that kind of games, you can go for it, it's a nice disctraction.

Edit: Apparently, the game was Bust-A-Move. The name itself is clicking in my head though I can't be sure if I was that.

Fun ball shooter.

I played a lot of this on Desura, so my Steam time is misleading.

This is a ball shooter game with a twist. There's phyiscs that affects how the balls move. Sometimes that ends up in your favor as a dangling trail of balls will swing back and forth and might attach to others which will activate them and make them explode. Other times the physics is a hindrance when a dangling trail swings by at the wrong moment and grabs the ball you intended to go elsewhere.

There's an upgrade tree that you spend points on. Get points by finishing a level in under a certain amount of balls spent. You can replay levels any time as much as you want.

3 Bonuses: Wild, Bomb, and Rocket. Each time you make a match it starts to power up your bonus meter. Once it is full you can choose a bonus to use.

This is a slower paced ball shooter than others I've played. I find the emphasis to be more on strategy, especially if you want to use as few balls as possible to get the 3 star rating. And sometimes you can waste a ball if you don't wait for the ones you just shot to fall because your new ball might attach to the falling ones.

There's no story, just fun arcade ball shooting.

Music is nice. I like it.

Graphics are okay. I'm not picky about graphics, though.

I find myself having to force myself to quit. "Just one more level!"

ok, not all the way done with this game yet, but with 210/250 levels completed @ 3 stars each, I feel ready to review it.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT buy this game if you are ANY sort of color blind.
The colors of the balls starts at Red, Dark Blue,and Green, which isn't so bad, BUT...
Each new "galaxy" unlocks a new color... THAT's the big difficulty spike, 1 more color EACH GALAXY.
New colors are Light Blue, Yellow, Purple, and Orange. Now, I'm not color blind, but I've mistaken the color of a ball several times.

So, Pros:
1. Pretty fun bubble-blaster game
2. Achievements (long, painful grind of 250 levels for all 10 of them tho!)
3. Trading Cards, including (as of this review) a cheap collection of foil cards for a foil badge (still only 100 points, but THE PRESTIGE of a FOIL badge!)

and Cons:
1. Completing this game totally is 250 levels, which is many many hours of grinding the same-looking screen and music over and over and over... I recommend Netflix and iTunes or something similar in the background while grinding this.
2. This game is NOT very friendly for people who are color-blind, I can't stress this enough! New colors of balls in each new galaxy (on top of all the previous colors) is most of the difficulty spike in each new galaxy.

and one weird pro/con glitch?:
1. Occasionally (this has happened to me twice in 210 levels), a ball will glitch so bad at the corners of the game that it will set off a chain reaction of destruction that will destroy all but a few balls on that level. This gives you a free (or mostly free) level, at the expense of messing your controls up and forcing you to exit and restart the game to regain normal controls. Doesn't happen often enough to be useful, doesn't seem to hurt the game (aside from an almost mandatory relaunch), and will never happen when you're trying to replicate it to make a video of it to send to the developers' emails. T_T

Very very VERY fun to watch tho, as all the balls turn into oh so much confetti! =^_^=

Sure, there might be better games out there, like some other reviewers suggest, but this game has trading cards and can be 100%'ed for achievements easily enough (even if it does take longer than some other games). At only $2 USD, that's a bargain in my book!

NOTE: Don't get the 4 game bundle, only this and maybe Fragile Ball are worth it. Maybe Fragile Ball, maybe... but definitely Intergalactic Bubbles!

The game is fun and is quite cheap but it is EXTREMELY MONOTONOUS. If you like the same level each and every round with absolutely no change other than a slight speedup, then go for this game but if you need a variety, I would go elsewhere.

I am glad I tried it and it isn't horrible though and it does offer powerups if I knew how to use one and all. Oh, and the controls suck and they cannot be edited.
