Plopp is the total package casual bubble-pop game!
May 17, 2012 9:09 AM –
Plopp is a bubble-like circles, so called ‘Plopps’ emerge all over the place and start growing. When you tap on a Plopp, it explodes and a shockwave is unleashed. If other Plopps are hit by this shockwave they also explode causing big chain-reactions!
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Pros & Cons:
- A unique take on the bubble pop style of game!
- Beautiful graphics and soundtrack!
Plopp is a deceptively simple game. Bubbles, or plopps, spawn on the screen. Your job is to pop them and earn points. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds.
Different colors of bubbles grow at different rates, and larger, faster bubbles are worth more points that smaller or slower ones. When you burst a bubble, it sends out a shock wave and pops any other bubbles that it touches. Which is an important strategy, since you get a finite number of lives, which you loose every time two unpopped bubbles touch each other. To complicate matters further, there are black bubbles that can ONLY be popped by a shockwave, so you have to plan and pop around them to ensure you balance the most points with the fewest loss of life.
You start out the level with a point goal, which, even after you reach it, you can keep going until you loose all your lives. I found it challenging from the start, since the bubbles spawn at different rates and, as I mentioned, speeds. Keeping track of them all, trying to let some get larger for greater point payouts, and making sure none of them touch all makes for a very addictive and interesting game.
If I had to make any complaint, it would only be that the black bubbles were hard to see on the default background. You can unlock others, but it takes time. It’s very minor in the grand scheme of things, but worth noting.
You start out with a set background and music style, along with a set style of plopps and shockwaves. You can unlock more the longer you play and progress through the levels. I have to say, even the defaults were, frankly gorgeous, and the soundtrack, the default at least, is a techno-inspired music that, for once, didn’t have me reaching for the mute button.

There is just something satisfying about bursting bubbles in any form, and this is no exception. The game is well done, adding new elements that really just make it fun to play.
Oh my yes! I lost quite a bit of time playing this game, and will probably loose more in the future. It’s challenging enough to keep it interesting, while easy enough to not be frustrating. Add in things to unlock to give you a reason to keep playing and this is a game you can easily loose hours on.
I have to say, this is a beautiful game. The backgrounds are well done, the animations are just perfect, and as you unlock more, it just gets better. I was pretty floored at just how good this game looks for such as casual game, plus that it doesn’t sacrifice anything, this just adds to the overall enjoyment.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The soundtrack, as I mentioned above, is really good. I have a habit of muting my phone or tablet most of the time when evaluating games, unless there’s something I need to hear specifically (or I’m testing a game with a soundtrack.) Plopp is one of the very, very few that I would actually leave my volume on when I play it later for fun. It’s got a techno-style vibe that just blends with the graphics and gameplay perfectly.
