This is a stellar week for mobile gamers. Not only can you download Words With Friends 2 (the sequel to one of the most popular online multiplayer games ever released on smartphones), but there’s another long-awaited sequel out called Cally’s Caves 4. If you haven’t played the Cally’s Caves games, they’re some of the best platforming games on the App Store. Plus, there’s a weird cooking game starring Steph Curry and his wife.
How much gum would a hipster chew if a hipster could chew gum? Who would blow a bigger balloon – a toothless granny or a sumo fighter? Don’t you think it’s about time to find out?
Your main goal is to make the right bubblegum balloon. Not too small or it will flop and not too large or it will blast in your face. Make it perfect and you’ll get a combo multiplier and the leaderboard will be yours. Beware though, the higher combo you score, the more difficult the game will get!
There are over 20 heroes to pick from. Each one of them is a real bubblegum aficionado and playing as a different hero is where the joy comes from. Especially when you pop the balloon and the gum blasts all over your face!
As you may have expected, gums are the most crucial items in this game. On each world, you draw from a different gumball. Each of the gums has a different name, flavor, and skin, as well as properties like points, speed, perfect, range & cash.
In BubbleGum Hero there’s also a ‘real life mode’! In settings, you can change the mode and literally blow into the microphone. Guess what, you will blow the balloon from within the game! That’s something to show off at the next party!
– Easy to grasp controls
– Simple and addictive gameplay
– 5 different worlds to unlock
– 15 characters and funny animations to unlock
– 30 bubble gums with different characteristics
– Stunning graphics and animations
– Music & sounds seamlessly adapting to the current world
– Online Leaderboards and Achievements
– Realistic mode – play by blowing into the microphone
– Apple Watch mini game

From the creator of Sage Solitaire, comes a new Solitaire variant that breaks all the rules!
Like it’s footwear namesake — Flipflop Solitaire is unrestrictive, creating a new game for fans of spider, klondike and other traditional Solitaires.
In Flipflop you can stack down, up, or even both ways on a single stack!
Need to stack an 8 on a 7, or a club on a spade? No problem!
– but –
Be careful, you can only move a stack of a single suit!
It’s fun and freeing, but still challenging and captivating.
It’s Flipflops for your brain.
——WHATS IN THE “BOX”?
– Play Flipflop Solitaire from 1-4 suits for free!
– Unlock 5 Suit, and 1 Suit Extended with a single in-app-purchase of $2.99
– Track your best times, least moves, least undos, total wins, total plays, and more
– Over a hundred achievements
– Unlockable backgrounds, alternate card and card back color schemes
– Natural ambient binaural background audio
– A strong sense of relaxation
——A WORD FROM THE DEVELOPER
Flipflop Solitaire is sort of a sequel to Sage Solitaire in the sense that it’s my second crack at the design problem of making a Solitaire game that feels like it was designed for your phone and not for a table.
To be honest this is how I wish everyone approached sequels. Usually a sequel takes the solution to a problem and duplicates it. This is why our expectations of game sequels are often more-of-the-same-but-better. I’d rather see more sequels that brought a renewed level of surprise and novelty, and I’m hoping that’s what you find in Flipflop Solitaire.
While Sage was all about trying to capture the feeling of a tight, easy to play, tough to win, zen solitaire game, Flipflop is about knots.
In a typical Solitaire game, like Klondike, you’re taking a knot of cards and untying it into sequences. Then you reverse those sequences into clean ordered stacks.
In Flipflop you take your knot of cards and tie it into other, hopefully better knots. Then you untie those knots into the final ordered stacks. Having so much control over the way your intermediary knots are constructed led to a lot more depth than I expected.
I hope you enjoy this game as much as I’ve enjoyed discovering it.
