App description

This simple app mimics the real world activity where people find enjoyment from popping the bubbles on bubble wrap. There are two modes to this game – modern and classic. Players can also choose if they want to pop small, medium or large bubbles. Each bubble that is popped gains the player points which appear to have no other currency within the game. The game is very repetitive and once a single screen of bubbles are popped another full screen of bubbles appear.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
