Crowdstar Launches Pop Boom


Crowdstar, the developer behind the “happy” line of social games Happy Pets, Happy Island, and Happy Aquarium, has flipped the switch on their latest title: Pop Boom! The game is quite different from all of Crowdstar previous titles. Instead of allowing players to decorate and grow a space, it is a one minute arcade title, similar to Popcap’s Bejeweled Blitz.

Players have one minute to pop as many balloons (or are they bubbles?) as they can. Players use their mouse to pick up a bubble, and can place it anywhere on the game screen. When three bubbles are aligned, they pop, and more come in from the bottom of the screen to take their place.

The game initially seems very simple, since players can place bubbles wherever they want. But players earn bonus points and can create power-ups by popping more than three balloons at once, or by creating cascading popping balloon combos. In Pop Boom, it pays to slow down (just a little) to try and think more than one move ahead.

Like many of these arcade-style games, they aren’t built to be played for hours at a time. Instead, it is fun to sign on and work for a bit to try and beat your friends’ high scores. Will Pop Boom be a huge hit like Bejeweled Blitz is for Popcap? That remains to be seen. We encourage games to try the game out for themselves, to see what they think.
