Like the opening cutscene, you can let it play out using the play button on the bottom right.
Skip the cutscene entirely by selecting the x button on the bottom left.
One you finish a level, you unlock the next one.
You can replay all the levels you’ve already played to improve your star rating.
The game works with the same fundamental rules as other bubble shooter games.
As Star, cast a spell of a specific color at the advancing wall of critters.
The spell must land on a group of 2 or more critters of the same color to clear them.
If the spell doesn’t land on the right number of critters, a new critter of the spell’s color appears.
Don’t let the critters reach the barricade on the left side of the screen.
Each time you clear a group that holds up other critters, the critters that are no longer attached are removed form the screen as well.
Key differences set this game apart from other bubble shooters:
The game is horizontally oriented. The wall of critters are on the right whereas the
You have a limited amount of ammunition.
When you run out of ammo, you fail the level.
You can see your remaining spells on the top left corner of the screen.
In general you will typically run out of ammo about half way through the game if you do not regularly use magic spells.
You can select the spell you cast based on the spell balls you’ve collected.
Select Star and Marco to select a different set of spell balls to cast.
You only have a limited number of spell balls to exchange with, based on how many you pick up while playing.
In addition to the color spells, later in the game you unlock two more spells which suck critters into the void or shoot flames down at the critters.
In later levels you gain several allies that will help you clear out the wall of critters faster
Starting from level 6. you also have to contend with pots.
Pots act as barriers that keep you from aiming at specific groups of critters. Often, you must shoot around them.
You cannot clear pots, but they act to shield and anchor critters to the group.
If you detach a pot (by taking out the critters below or beside it), you can clear it from the playing field, as well as anything still attached to it.
On some of the later levels you have to rescue friends by removing all the critters surrounding them.
Bonuses come in the form of cupcakes.
Cupcakes appear in game after clearing large swaths of critters. Select them as they appear.
Each time you activate your allies’ powers, you use up one cupcake.
If you still have cupcakes left after the game ends, you can receive a time bonus that reduces your total counted playtime.
Each level has a different ally or group of allies on it. Not all allies are present on each level.
Each ally provides a different benefit:
Minotaur: Pushes back the crowd of critters.
Flying pig: Removes all critters of a specific color.
Pirate Bear: Hits 3 critters of your choice.
Flying pig: Takes out a group of critters of any color within a specific range
Raccoon: Allows you to rapidly shoot bubbles for a short period of time without drawing down your remaining bubbles inventory. Be warned you can not layer a color spell on top of this rapid stream of fire.
Disco worm: allows you to change colors individually of 3 different bubbles, one at a time.
Your star rating for the level depends on how fast you clear all the critters.
For every cupcake you don’t use, you get some time removed from your total.
Finish within or below the level’s time to beat (revealed after you finish the level) to earn 3 stars.
Swap balls whenever you can to maximize the number of critters you can clear within a turn. Your ball count is limited, so shooting off colored balls that do not make matches depletes a vital resource while giving you more balls you’ll have to remove later.
Choose larger groups of critter to clear, especially those that smaller groups of critters are attached to.
You can bounce your shots off the top or bottom walls to get into hard to reach places.
Whenever possible, use your allies’ powers to strategically clear large swaths of critters at once.
That said, conserve your cupcakes to take advantage of the time bonus.
The game is suited for children who like Star Vs. The Forces of Evil.
The game has no adult themed content.
