A Wonderful Challenge
Always searching for a good brain teaser, this app has quickly become a new favorite! It is relaxing, beautifully designed and appropriately challenging to keep interest high. I am hopelessly stuck on the Underminer puzzle, but know I will get it soon. The great colors, graphics and navigation make the game worth its small price. And how refreshing to enjoy a game without being manipulated into in-app purchases. Pay and play is the way to go! Well-suited for both platforms, I purchased the game for both my tablet and phone.
Congrats to the developers on this well-designed, finely executed new game. They have thought of everything, even a method for those who have difficulty distinguishing colors. Now, I am off to earn more ‘extra turns’ to help me crack that stubborn puzzle. LOL
My original review made valid points, but after playing this game some more---a LOT more--it's way better than my initial estimate. Once you get through more of the games, you get your choice of replaying your faves for a more zen experience or setting yourself on the harder challenges if you're in the mood for that. Playing the infinity level for additional hints helps the tickets really add up (I'm currently at over 100) so you've got a better chance of getting through the tougher games. There are still some issues: just can't get through some of the levels and there should be a way to unlock them once you've played a few times, and it would be nice to have hints available for all of the games. Overall, though, this *is* a winner. It's cute, I love the little fish, the colors are pretty, the soundscape is sweetly amusing. Thanks to the developer's response for making me take a closer look.
Starts out cute, then becomes annoyingly challenging and hints become hard to come by. If I paid for a game I want a way to get through it or it wastes my time. Provide as many hints as needed. What's the point of a game that keeps a low level player stuck? I just want to relax with a pretty game.

Thanks for the feedback Anne. You are right, we don't want anyone to get stuck. Let's see if I can help you. Try holding down on a bubble to see mix help. Also the Infinity Game lets you collect tickets which can be used for puzzle hints. After you get to the top of Foam School, from the main map, tap the button that appears in the top right of the screen. In Infinity Mode you make matches with tickets in them to collect the tickets. Also I would be happy to help you with written hints. Let me know how I can help you enjoy the game more. You can email us or join our Discord community: see https://pinestreetcodeworks.com/support
A Must Get
There are so many puzzle and match games out there that your head could burst just trying to choose. I can make it easy for you. After reading about this delightful app in Stories, I had to check it out. There are so many elements to this puzzle game: the puzzles themselves, the colors, the music, even the hilarious annoying little creatures that you are never bored. And, there’s something satisfying about seeing all the bubbles pop and go away. Like a bad day, it’s fun to watch them go. I have to make myself stop playing or I’d get nothing done in my day. It’s not just a kids app. I’m a CPA/MBA and the puzzles can stump me. But you can get tips to save your sanity. This is one of the most fun games I’ve played in quite a while. Don’t pass it up.
