  • Review Pop (WiiWare)

    'Once you pop, you just can't stop' is proved to be true in this excellent WiiWare launch title.

    Pop, as the title suggests, is a game where you pop bubbles. But don’t be fooled by the deceptive simplicity of this idea; there’s more to it than might be apparent at first glance. First of all, Pop has a timer that counts down; if you don't pop...

About The Game

Pop is all about popping bubbles! It may sound simple, but there are lots of things you can do to get a high score and have fun. Just keep an eye on the timer because when it runs out, it's game over! Each bubble is worth both points and time so try to fill up your timer first, then focus on scoring high. You can then start to chain the same colour of bubbles together and pop them for big points - a great way to increase your score!

Friends can join you in a game of Pop, too! Whenever you are playing, all they need to do is grab their Wii Remote and then join in the action. Watch out because they may start using power-ups to hold you back! If they do try to pump up some bubbles or detonate a nuke, this will create a shockwave which will destroy any matching colours of bubbles it touches.

Finally there are badges for completing certain objectives, online high-score tables and WiiConnect24 messages so you can keep up with your friends’ progress and boast about your own.
