Whether you’re an adult who is looking to sharpen your math skills or a youngster who’s learning it for the first time and needs a bit of help, Bubbly Walrus is for you.
Developed by F & J Estudio Digital Ltda., this fun and immersive math game makes math a bit less painful.
Concept and Gameplay
Bubbly Walrus is a nice combination of extensive levels and a pleasant storyline.
As the player, it’s your goal to help Walrus traverse through different worlds in order to help him save his lady. Like other games, this means encountering treacherous creatures and battling your way through levels.
In this fun learning experience, however, instead of using powerful weapons and spells, your only tool is your brain.
That being said, the game has some terrific features that make it just as much of a fun game as it is a teaching tool. For example, stage bosses, special levels that usually come before them, and boosters such as the “bluy ray bubble”, “color bubble” and “scissors bubble” all contribute to a full gaming experience.
To play Bubbly Walrus, simply tap on the level you want to battle your way through.
Perhaps the best thing about the game is that gameplay elements change as you progress through levels, so things get switched up quite a bit and stay interesting.
If you’re playing a level that’s different, a brief tutorial will appear on the screen to show you how to complete the level.
For the most part, the goal of Bubbly Walrus levels is to match numbers in bubbles to the numbers at the bottom of the screen. Depending on the level, you could be searching for products, factors, or both.
Quick thinking is mandatory, though, as levels are timed. The faster you complete a level, the better your score will be.
As far as gameplay, I found Bubbly Walrus to be very easy to figure out thanks to helpful animated tutorials. I really like the storyline and the fact that it’s not a boring game at all.
Bubbly Walrus is very animated and lively.
Such an immersive game is sure to have plenty of features, and Bubbly Walrus definitely delivers. From helpful power ups and boosts that’ll help with even the most difficult of levels, to a variety of worlds to explore, this game has a lot going for it.
However, there’s one feature that I’m not a big fan of, which is heavy social media integration. For example, if you complete a level with no errors, you’ll receive a special collectable card. There’s a catch, though; you can only receive the card if you share it via social media.
As you can imagine, this isn’t a very good thing for parents who don’t necessarily want kids to be taken away from Bubbly Walrus by having to open another app.
Even though the game isn’t for very young children, I do believe Bubbly Walrus shouldn’t rely on social media so heavily. Instead, adding an option for parents to disable social media integration would be a good idea. Instead of having to share, cards can be received by completing a challenging puzzle.
Bubbly Walrus is available to download from Google Play for $1.99, which is actually a fantastic value given how much content is in the game.
It’s a great game for both adults and students, but parents should definitely be aware that it depends on social media sharing for the collectible cards.
Bubbly Walrus is $1.99 and requires Android 4.3+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
