Product: Captain Bubblenaut
Developer: Dean Tate & Owen Macindoe
Publisher: Dean Tate & Owen Macindoe
Genre: Action, Arcade
Captain Bubblenaut is another in that ever-extending line of games that are all about tiny bite-sized blasts of highly condensed play. A single go lasts a scant handful of minutes, and you can control the action with a single finger.
It's an entertaining little time-waster, but unlike the best in the genre it doesn't have a strong enough hook to pull you in time after time, and after a few plays you'll find yourself hungering after something with a little more meat.
The game is sort of like a minimalist Tiny Wings. You're an alien trying to kill as many humans as you can in order to invade the planet. To do this you control the ground, sliding it from side to side in order to catch the plummeting invader and swoop him from side to side.
A perfectly passable little waste of time, Captain Bubblenaut isn't bad, but it's not that good either
