JamesBomboozle 2I'm not the person to drag to a ice cream parlour, lavished with the promise of 99 different flavours. Me, I'm a vanilla kinda guy, Not that I don't mind the other flavours, but some classics always stand the test of time. Vanilla, jeans, thunderbolts... there have been many variations and 'improvements', but nothing that beats the original. That also goes for many puzzle games and while people are less inclined to meet an old favourite during an adventure game, on their own they hit the sweet spot. That, more or less, summarises my opinion of pop-the-colour puzzle game Bomboozle 2 from Megadev.

It's the simplest of 'Bubble' games: tag three or more coloured balls to make them pop off the grid and drop down the stacks. The more you take out in a go, the better. Five or more will spawn a bomb (pretty self-explanatory), four just scores and three will spawn a skull that requires a bomb to remove. Rainbow balls step in to mimic the color you tag and treasure chests are little gifts of points... providing you can get them to the bottom bar. There are three game modes: no restriction, 3 minutes and 100 moves.

Things systemically get tougher; new levels add more colors and hardier skulls. To aid you in your quest of conquering the spheric rainbow, each colour has a special power represented as a jar. Each time you pop a specific colour, you fill its jar a little. A full jar can be tapped for a special move. Depending on the color, it can flip the screen, randomize the board, detonate all the bombs (and the hard-won Change All Skulls Into Bombs), to name a few. This is Bamboozle 2's only discernable twist on what is a classic puzzle game. But even though it has left the house, it is still in the yard and more of a classic than a new game. The powerups give an interesting twist to a familiar experience. And a bearded artisan will dance for you. So if you are not in the mood for a Death-By-Chocolate-And-Autopsy-By-Caramel game, give this a try.

Addictive. I played until I got the alluring "Change All Skulls Into Bombs". And it was indeed fun to click that.

It wasn't too hard to get the Change All Skulls powerup once I realized that I should strive for 3-ball and 5-ball groups. 3's to get skulls and 5's to get bombs to break the skulls.

One thing I really disliked about the game was the distracting cartoony man on the left. I'm not usually bothered by things like that, but I had to resize my window to get him out of the picture, and still he managed to regularly wave his arm into the puzzle. Ugh.

@barbara -- Turn off "Mr Bamboozle" in the options. I did that before playing and never got a cartoon guy interruption.
Just started playing -- fun!
