I met my challenges and moved onto the next round, however bear in mind that it does get a little more complex as time goes by as you have to make more and more words. As your word power increases, you will unlock harder difficulty levels with more complex or unusual words. Watch out for the letter Z it gets in your way but do look out for helpful tips and advice from Wordsworth Smartygills who becomes your friend. Another friend will come in the form of the wild word bubble otherwise known as Stella. Stell becomes any letter you want and, believe me, you will find Stella most helpful when you cannot find the letter you are looking for to make up a desired word. Game play is simple, joimn the letters, then when your word is made drag to the top of the screen and your points go up. You get more points for multiplier letters and there is also another cool little gem.
Everyday your friend and tutor Wordsworth Smartygills will present to you a new word everyday, if you can make the word using the letters then you will be awarded a special prize, just remember the word so that you can make it and get your prize.
By the way Bubble Babble includes a trophy system, in other words you get cool shells when you have accomplished levels and impressed Wordsworth Smartygills and Stella.
I would say that this game is fun and indeed it is but it does more than that, it helps boost your vocabulary so I can see it becoming quite a useful aid to students and those who just wish to brush up on their vocabulary skills. The game is terrific fun, I spent a hour playing this game and could have played for longer but the 'realworld' was calling. Normally I get one of my writers or staff to review games but Bubble Babble just blew me away that I had to review and sing its praises.

Astraware produce some great games and I always believe that their word games are some of the best. I have to say that BubbleBabble has now become my favourite word game, indeed it is one of the best mobile games to have been introduced for some time. The game-play is simple, addictive, fun and yet educational. It will attract fans of all ages and keep you playing for hours on end. Do yourself a favour and download it, I know, like me you will not be disappointed. This game will be staying on my mobile device for a long time.

I have dedicated PATV161 to BubbleBabble so you can see for yourself my thoughts and how the game looks on a Treo 650.
