Play.com selling Soul Bubbles for £7.99

I dont normally put straight adverts up, but seeing as this is a utterly superb DS game, which the creator of LBA helped a little with, I thought this worth informing people about;

http://www.play.com/Games/DS/4-/5376...searchsource=0

More details of Soul Bubbles and a review is featured a few news posts back.
At 8GBP + Free Delivery (for UK) its well worth buying.

It's not play.com that's selling Soul Bubbles. It's a 3rd party.

Its also a strong contributing factor in what makes a DS worth owning.


Polaris
- For me, its got a great design, and each stage chucks new ideas into the basic formula. Superb physics makes the environment feel alive and provide some very interesting puzzles.
Theres plenty of reviews for the game about;
http://uk.ds.ign.com/articles/879/879435p1.html
for instance.

The developers have also given nice interviews here;
http://www.cubed3.com/news/11790/

Theres also an MBN thread here about the game, where one of the developers comments on Fredric Raynals involvement;

Oh, it seems Play.com is out of stock themselfs, so its now only avaliable elsewhere/second hand.

Amazons probably the better place to get it now;

Just a tip: There's no need to have a thread open both in News and in elsewhere.

Yes, Id say its worth that.
I bought it for around 35GBP myself, and dont have any regrets. Its a little short, but for 20GBP is well worth the money still.

Incidently, the game still isnt saleing that well, so they are bringing it to Japan, complete with a slight redesign of the style;

Lol, this is what "Obras The Kid" calls censorship

Yea, it probably didn't sell well because of the lack of appeal to its intended audience, that's something they probably got wrong in their formula unfortunately, Fred had that down as one of the keys to a game's success .

From a shallow gamer like myself's point of view, this initially looks like a child's game with no real appeal. You have to look a bit further to understand its potential then I guess. But I'm definitely willing to give it a go, EB has these second hand, although I'm going to have a look around in other places first before to see if I can get it cheaper. Uni students need all the money they can get just to live .

I just had to post and say I bought an NDS (Lite) yesterday and found Soul Bubbles! I thought they weren't selling anymore and had given up, but there was a stack of them in the Kmart store I went to for AU$30 each ^_^

Sorry I bumped the thread, but posts in this forum tend to come slowly anyway, don't they? ^^;

I haven't actually had a go at the game yet, though. I bought 3 others and I'm playing them one at a time (Rune Factory, Mario and Animal Crossing)

So I actually listened to what some of your said about making it worthwhile to get a DS :P

the soul bubbles game is rather enjoyable and it can be addicting i know there are times i want to just play for 10 mins and i end up playing a ton of levels for an hour or two. Definetly would recomend it.

Yeah.
If you just got a DS, you got a stack load of quality back catalogue to enjoy too.
But the games you got there should last you a bit :P

I take a look at some videos of this new version and I simple prefer the original one. Still hope they success in that market.

About the price in Play.com is amazing, here in Portugal the game still cost 39.90€ which was the price I pay when I got my DS as well a year ago.
