***story***
In the ocean far far away, there is a beautiful island named Yatis floating in the air. Many small elves live there happily. One day, a wicked witch comes to the island. She is looking into the gemstones on the island for long time, so she bewitches the elves who are guarding the gemstones. She hems them in magic bubbles. Finally, the little girl Jenna uses various magic to beat the witch and rescues the elf.

***instruction***
There are over 200 rounds in the game which have been divided into 4 chapters. They are: island in the air, Maya's secret, gemstone mine, magic forest. Each chapter has 50 rounds.

Ok it looks decent but what is it? A puzzle game? The description is more of a translation than a description.

The only thing you should know - it aint worth your dollar

Its a match 2 similar bubbles to pop them up game. The screen is over crowded and things didnt look as good as it looked in the pics. Especially the smaller bubbles looked really bad.

Too much going on the screen here. Within the first ten seconds an annoying buzzer starts sounding and it stays on for the rest of the game until you loose. The buzzer is for notifying which bubble is going to be lost, in case you dont pop it in time. Loose too many bubbles and you loose the game. Also some of the bubbles are really tiny and it`s hard to pinpoint them from behind the big bubbles and pop them so that annoying buzer will shut up atleast

There are special bubbles like bomb and extra-time etc. Popping them leads to another problem. Their after effects (like a big WOW or lots of small bubbles appearing when you get a special bubble) fill up the screen for the next couple of seconds making it even harder to see what is going on in the game.

The game is basically for kids only. I seriously doubt if anyone else could really enjoy this game. If anyone is still interested, then it seems there would be a lite version very soon as the main screen shows "Full Version" on the top right. So stay away until u try out the lite dirst.

Still I m not that disappointed as I m pretty sure my 3 year old will get some mileage out of it. Otherwise, not recommended at all even if you have a small kid at home. 2 out of 5 as far as ratings go.

Yeah the game looked like it had a chance but I guess it just doesn't have the right stuff.

They should have atleast made the game simpler. Right now new bubbles keep appearing at a relatively fast pace, probably faster then a 3-4year old will be able to pop them. Had it been a fixed number of bubbles per level with no new bubbles appearing(or atleast not at this fast pace), I might have recommended the game for kids atleast. But right now even I had to try twice before completing the first two levels.
