Is there anything more wonderful than playing a Bust-a-Move style bubble popping game on a quiet evening? I don’t think I’ve ever found a game both so peaceful and so addicting as Bubble Cannon 2. After many years, I still enjoy playing it… and I still haven’t beaten it.
Colliding bubbles of the same colour will count each bubble down from three until it pops. The more bubbles that pop, the more you can shoot from your cannon. The more you shoot from your cannon, the more colours you get. And the more colours you get, the more bubbles you can pop. It’s a beautiful thing.
The game challenges you to reach “zen” by getting to level ten. I’ve never been able to do it. But with the beautiful music, simple gameplay, and that rewarding “pop!” sound, somehow I don’t mind. Sit back, unwind, and fall into serenity. Pop.
