Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 9th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

PAPER Anne is a brand-new puzzle game from developer UsFun Games, slated for release on 27th February. It’s a charming, family-friendly fairy-tale that’s sure to warm hearts.

Anne is a paper girl, in a paper world. But this world isn’t quite the right fit for her. She’s surrounded by characters straight out of the annals of children’s fiction, with references to The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Nut Cracker, The Ugly Duckling and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. You’ll take instructions from the Cheshire Cat, fight at the Tin Soldier’s side, question the Queen of Hearts and overcome the Mouse King’s evil spell. As you help or hinder the characters from these classics, you’ll acquire pieces of Anne’s story, and she’ll move closer to discovering her rightful world.

Tako Bubble guide - Tips and Tricks to Save Your Lives

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 17th, 2018

Tako Bubble is a pretty simple and fun puzzler, but the game can get downright devious with its puzzle design. If you insist on not paying for the game and want to manage your lives appropriately, check out these tips so you can avoid getting stuck watching ads.

Look before you leap

One of the greatest things about Tako Bubble is its visual design. Not only is everything cute and colorful, but it is also remarkably communicative. Be on the lookout for x’s that appear in spaces nearby or cracks in certain tiles before you start swiping around and collecting bubbles. Take your time, look things over, and plot out a course of action. This will make sure you don’t trap yourself in an unwinnable situation.

Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good

In Tako Bubble, you want to collect as many bubbles as possible, but it’s not necessary to collect everything to reach the next level. All you have to do is collect the colorful bubbles in order to proceed. All of the other bubbles on a level might be tempting to go after, but they also present opportunities for you to die, so focus on getting through a level rather than perfecting it. You’ll last longer that way.

When all else fails, restart

If saving lives if your priority, then never die! You can do this easily by using Tako Bubble’s restart button. Pressing this button might make you have to retrace some of your steps, but at least using it doesn’t consume any of your precious lives. Use it as often as you need!

Get the hint

Certain levels of Tako Bubble bring up a little lightbulb icon at the top of the screen. This icon exists to give you hints on how to solve the level, so make sure you use it whenever you can. Any additional amount of information can be the difference between surviving a level and wasting a life.
