I got my DS for Christmas this year and have really enjoyed playing some excellent games. I loved Zelda and Hotel Dusk and the brilliant Cooking Mama games. After that, though, I have been quite disappointed. Until now! Soul Bubbles is one of those games that has a simple concept but real playability. You have to shepherd spirits around various landscapes in a bubble. The genius bit is the masks that you can wear to make new bubbles, cut bubbles and deflate large bubbles. As you go along you can shoot at baddies and learn new skills.
It has the puzzle element of the Zelda games along with the easy playing action of Cooking Mama. A classic!

It's hard to make a game that just feels "right" - a game that gives a tangible sense of satisfaction as you play. Moving a bubble through a maze is a simple concept, but Mekensleep have executed it perfectly, successfully delivering on their objective of making creative and original games. The bubble bounces, contorts, and squeezes through narrow gaps like a kind of greased balloon. It really is wonderful to watch and shows that tremendous attention has been paid to the game's physics.

The artwork is stunning, and I found myself enjoying looking at the backdrops as much as I did actually playing the game. The soundtrack is well considered, with soft music and nature sounds playing in the background. It's a very relaxing experience.

My only concern is with the game's longivity, as it can be finished fairly quickly. However, I would still rate it as an excellent purchase - it may not last long, but it doesn't really need to. The overall experience is just sublime.

This is one of those games that you find in the shop, pick up and wonder at and, when you finally get it home, it turns out to be a real treasure. It is a lovely, addictive, little game, which is oddly relaxing to play. The puzzle levels are not exactly difficult but they are challenging enough to keep you interested. You play a little flying fellow who blows a bubble containing seven souls from one end of a maze to another, through different landscapes and obstacles to get all seven souls safely to the other end, squeezing, slicing, cutting and occasionally shooting your way through, often taking detours along the way to find other things you need. Sometimes you need to make new bubbles to solve puzzles, and other times you need to cut your existing one in half. The ease of the controls mean that even the most anti of gamers, who will not broach their way past brain training and the countless sudoku games, will find it easy to play and it has certainly helped my friend expand her gaming experience. My only criticism, and it is a very small criticism, is that it is such a short game, about 8 hours worth of game play, but that is not a major issue, I can always step away from it and then come back and play it again. As the fun little disclaimer right at the start says, I really did find everything turned out Hunky Dory!

This is one of those games that is interesting but the idea sounds boring. I'd seen videos but wasn't sure if the game was for me, but i had it for my birthday and decided to give it a go. Will someone please tell me why this game has never got much advertising time?! It is such a beautiful game- the music and the backgrounds are amazing. The idea may sound boring but believe me- there's puzzle solving to do (sometimes you really have to think) and the characters are really cool. To me, it's really relaxing aswell and i don't get stressed playing it (could be because of the music and backgrounds).

There are two little niggles with it. First, you can only save one game, which is a pity as my sister would have liked a go, and secondly, sometimes the question markers are a little beyond a problem which means spending a little too long on one part. However, these really are small problems and will not affect the gameplay.

This is such a gem of a game. It is a pity there are only seven levels but it's something which can easily be replayed. For the price it is at the moment, it's a steal. If you're looking for something new to play, get this game, and don't worry, everything will be hunky dorie at the end!

As indeed the disclaimer that greets you as you load the game promises. My boyfriend bought this game for me two days ago on a whim because he thought I might like it. I am now trying to sneak in a few minutes of gameplay at work during some down time. Such is the addictive nature of Soul Bubbles. The concept is absurdly simple - use your stylus to create bubbles that can guard and herd seven vulnerable spirits through 8 worlds and 40 levels, protecting them from mean-looking creatures with evil plots, and avoiding the many obstacles that would destroy your bubble and it's precious cargo. The puzzles themselves are pretty simple, although they get slightly more challenging as you progress. Nothing mind taxing though, the overall effect is a combination of relaxing and satisfying - great for a London commute!

I love this game for several reasons, the main one being the actual physics of the bubbles, which bounce, squeeze and float their way around the landscapes in a very realistic way, all with gentle movements of the stylus. The main character also acquires different skills during the adventure, such as cutting bubbles to make them easier to fit through small gaps, creating new bubbles and deflating current ones. All these abilities are controlled by the D-pad - again with the simplicity. And a final nod to the levels themselves - they are beautiful. Thoughtfully drawn and vividly coloured, and full of really nice touches like the dandelion clocks that shed their seeds when blown on, the jungle branches that flutter in the breeze, and the falling rain. These details show just how much thought has gone into this game. Mekensleep is definitely a developer to watch - Soul Bubbles shows that they seem to understand the capabilities of the DS console almost as well as Nintendo.
