Bubble Ghost is a maze game in which you the player put your ghost character through puzzle after puzzle, moving through the rooms of the Bubble Ghost’s mansion while avoiding various traps, tricks and trouble. The Bubble Ghost can be directed in a compass pattern of movement, and blows on a bubble to keep it moving through the mansion (and ideally not popping on the complicated machinery) that is the contest.
Each room has a way in, and a way out, and as Bubble Ghost is already a ghost, he isn’t in much danger himself.... But he does have to keep blowing his bubble, which is in constant motion and likely to pop on the various surfaces that are in the way. Each room of the mansion is a fun arrangement of devices that can set the bubble popping and Bubble Ghost blue, but if you are a crafty player, you will navigate your bubble through each room and keep your Bubble Ghost happy.
The graphics are quite nice for a simple game of this kind, pretty for their purposes and not the super creepy style that might go with a game titled Bubble Ghost. Bubble Ghost is essentially a kind ghost, I would presume, because while his mansion is quite strange, his pastime in the game (and therefore your series of obstacles) is to keep his bubble moving through it. That is the entire scope of gameplay, which is suitably enjoyable and pleasant.
Bubble Ghost occasionally has a couple of options how to get his bubble through any given room, but usually it is one way in and one way out. As there are a variety of levels and flat surfaces in the rooms of his mansion, he needs to quite delicately blow his bubble up, down, left, right and at diagonals in order to keep the bubble moving freely and safe from the traps that could pop it. Oddly enough, I don’t recall there being any bathroom in Bubble Ghost’s mansion, so I take it Bubble Ghost is merely a recreational bubble-blowing ghost, as though perhaps he had in his pocket a flask of soap and the little round bubble maker that occasionally is found in the real world making bubbles yet again.
Bubble Ghost will keep blowing
There aren’t so many rooms in the game of Bubble Ghost that victory is impossible, and certainly if you enjoy the game you will find yourself playing with enough dedication that winning the game, which entails moving your bubble through Bubble Ghost’s entire mansion, is within the scope of your abilities that can keep you playing. The gameplay is consistently good throughout the game, and while there aren’t a large variety of gameplay scenarios to carry out, you will find that if you like the basic style of the game, you may find yourself playing quite a bit of Bubble Ghost. That, and making an effort to preserve your bubble.
Each room is similar to others, but there truly is quite a bit of variety as crazy mansions go which have Bubble Ghost moving through them blowing his bubble. It wouldn’t come as a surprise in the least if Bubble Ghost’s bubble occasionally pops, but if you are a skillful player at puzzle games, you will see Bubble Ghost succeed and keep his bubble flying through each and every room of his mansion.
