Pop It! is a relaxing and addictive puzzle game for Android in which you need to burst all the balloons on screen by figuring out the right sequence.
How to play Pop It!
The aim of Pop It! is to pop the colored balloons within the number of allowed taps to progress to the next level (of which there are more than 300 to unlock for free). If you tap a green balloon it will fire an arrow in four directions, bursting any green bubbles that it hits or changing the color of a balloon if it's not green. Balloons go through a sequence of colors before they become green so some need to be hit a few times before they eventually burst. For example, the red balloon needs two arrows, yellow needs three and blue needs four.
So, the challenge of Pop It! is to choose the right balloon that will trigger the sequence needed to change all the balloons to green and eventually pop them all. Often you'll need to use one of your allocated 'taps' to change the color of a balloon rather than fire an arrow from a green balloon.
The gameplay in Pop It! is very addictive and it's a difficult game to put down. That said, it's very, very repetitive and the gameplay in each level doesn't differ greatly. It would be nice if the developer would introduce some power-ups or special features to add some dynamism to the gameplay.
Playing Pop It! is so simple that even a small child could work it out without too much trouble. You simply need to tap the balloons and wait for the ensuing chain reaction.
Hints are available for when you get stuck, though you are only given three and must pay to add more.
The graphics in Pop It! are cutesy and colorful, though they don't break any new ground. The classical guitar soundtrack is great, however. Its relaxing vibe really matches the hypnotic nature of the gameplay in Pop It!
Pop It! is an addictive puzzle game that will keep you entertained on a long journey. However, it gets tediously repetitive after a while.
