Mac|Life has posted a short new review of Bubble Bash, one of the many new titles added to the growing list of games for Apple's iPod. The game offers Bust-a-Move style bubble bashing with with 100 levels, several types of challenges, and a variety of power ups. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Great game mechanics inspire decades of imitators, and Bubble Bash for the iPod clearly follows Bust-a Move. You might also remember the basic idea as remixed in Snood and many others: erase on-screen bubbles by firing new ones, matching three or more of the same color. Using a light touch to aim with the click wheel, Bubble Bash pulls off this core gameplay, adding a few of its own flourishes.

Already-done game modes, where new rows of bubbles drop down from the ceiling are joined by others, like levels with bubbles suspended by balloons. These hanging clumps sink with more weight, drift when hit from the side, and otherwise react to your moves. And instead of trying to clear them all, you just need to sever the bubble attached to the balloon string. Further embellishments include different bubble types: bombs destroy neighbors, frozen bubbles shatter regardless of color, and more. Some of those get confusing—like remembering several types of bombs—but they generally work to hold players’ interest.
