King.com has launched their popular Facebook game Bubble Witch Saga on iOS. This match–3 game inspired by Bust-a-Move/Puzzle Bobble has players launching bubbles at ones into a playing field, trying to match 3 of the same color. Each level has a set layout, and there’s a limited number of bubbles that a player has in order to complete the level. There are also cauldrons at the bottom that bubbles can fall into to give extra points. These include bubbles that fall off when higher bubbles are eliminated, after the remaining bubbles in the level fall, and any leftover bubbles not shot are launched into the playing field. Having lots of bubbles for scoring points is the key to getting high scores, and the 3-star rewards.
However, the killer feature is that Bubble Witch Saga can synchronize progress between the Facebook and iOS versions. Logging in with one’s Facebook account allows the game to easily synchronize across platforms. May no bubble be unnecessarily popped twice!
