Bubble Witch 3 Saga is a Match 3 Saga game from King.
Making matches of 3 or more bubbles of the same color will destroy them and remove them from the game board.
You can play on your own or connect with friends. Use Flynn the message owl to answer your friends requests and when you need help yourself you'll get lives in return.
The Bubble Shooter usually has two colored bubbles.
The bubble at the top is the next bubble you'll shoot, the bubble at the bottom comes after.
You can swap the bubble by tapping on the center of your Bubble Shooter (where you see the number).
This number in the bubble shooter lets you know how many bubbles you have left.
Aim the shooter and link 3 bubbles of the same color together. Matching will cause all connected bubbles of the same color to be destroyed
Any bubbles that are knocked off when you make a match, will fall into the vortex.
Collect the required number of Owls!
Each Owl has a specific color and these colors are the same as the bubbles. Make a match that is the same as the color of an Owl in order to collect it!
Clear a path through the bubbles to make the ghost fly to the top of the screen. Every time you make space higher on the board the ghost will make his way up.
In Boss mode, you must defeat Wilbur by releasing fairies. Level 10 is the first Boss level.
When his health is down to zero, you will pass the level.
Wilbur’s health is represented by the green life-bar at the top of the screen. Wilbur will refresh the screen with new bubbles after every turn.
At the end of Level 500 the evil witch Morgana is introduced to the game and features in Boss Levels from Level 540.
To defeat her you need to remove the bubbles that immediately surround Morgana.
In these Levels you must clear 100% of the bubbles from the board.
These can be bought with gold bars, or earned as rewards for upgrading Stella's house and in bonus games like Spooky Library, Treasure Cave and 'peek-a-boo'
