Bubble Witch Saga 2 was in London last week and some of the VGU team went to try out the Halloween Magic School pop up down in Greek Street, Soho.
Bubble Witch Saga 2 is a bubble shooter game in which you need to match at least three bubbles of the same colour to pop them. Clearing board or saving animals is just some of the different tasks you need to complete. King set up the event to celebrate the game in the spirit of Halloween and the new Magic School section of the game. Both the media and the public were invited to the event to try out the Bubble Witch themed activities.
A range of different events were on at the event, the first was flying school. This saw you put on your cloak, a witch’s hat and grab your broom. From here you would jump in the air for the photographer to take your flying picture. A cool little trick which was fun for one person or multiple, with the photo printed there and then for you to keep for free.
Next up was the #MyBubbleWitchMakeOver that brought in professional make up artists to the venue to give visitors a spooky upgrade to their appearance. Different options were available to choose from, and as the night progressed the creations got more creative with creepy spiders instead of cute ones, mummies and more. On the Thursday, make-up artist and Instagrammer Laura Jenkinson was also there painting Bubble Witch themed faces.
Another activity the potion school saw guests partake in potion creation using drinkable science. Three different drinks were available. One drink was bubbling mist made with elderflower, another was flaming with a sprinkle of cinnamon and the last creation changed colour from a dark blue to a light pink when two different flavours were added. On top of the drinks, we also created mango fish balls (not real fish) that were created using a paste dropped in a liquid solution and a selection of themed snacks.
Finally, the game was available to play during the event and the Magic School was open for us to try. The Magic School is an additional part of the game that lets you create potions that help you with those trickier levels. The potions you can create are:
- Oracle: See a 3rd bubble to help plan your shots. To have this potion, you need collect 80 red bubbles and can use it after a brewing time of 30 minutes.
- Sparkle Shower: A Sparkle Shower will fall across the bubble board. To have this potion, you need collect 160 yellow bubbles and can use it after a brewing time of 60 minutes.
- Extended Aim: Extends the aiming line for more accurate shots. To have this potion, you need collect 200 blue bubbles and can use it after a brewing time of 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Overall the event was a great Halloween surprise for gamers and those who play Bubble Witch Saga 2. The event was completely free to enter and saw the many people of London trying out the different activities the night had to offer. The hashtag #MyBubbleWitchMakeOver is still ongoing until the end of November 3rd and by tweeting to it with your creations at the event, or bubble makeover will see you in for a chance to win an iPad.
