Casting you in the role of a trainee shaman tasked with ferrying souls to the underworld, Soul Bubbles is an amusingly endearing game. From the Yoda-esque tutor who gently teases you through the tutorials, to the relaxing evening sounds of the Savannah...

Soul Bubbles is the kind of toy that the DS and Wii are especially good with, making for light entertainment with an indulgence of the systems' special control schemes. Soul Bubbles manages to take this very simple concept and make it worth the...

Easy Controls ; Nice art design

Game can be kind of shallow and may not hold your attention

This game is meant to be adorable, but I think it tries so hard to earnestly nonthreatening and wholesome that it can be saccharine.

Using the stylus, you maneuver your bubble-wrapped charges through a maze of spikes, wind and water currents, pitch-black opal mines and switches. There are eight nature-themed worlds to play through and each level has five sub-levels. Tribal art,...

Bubble control, challenging puzzles, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful scenery

Not much depth or back story, some obstacles require too much backtracking, available only at Toys 'R Us

In the Toys 'R Us exclusive DS game, Soul Bubbles, you play as a small fellow with a giant scarf and great lungs. He has no name and is referred to only as the Spirit Herder by a senile and crazy-eyed mentor. This teacher guides you through a tutorial...

I got soul, and I'm superbad.

While not really action-packed, this quaint physics-based puzzler still pleases.

Great physics-based puzzle gameplay; relaxing music; fantastic art style

Not for thrill/kill-seeking gamers; tranquility like this could make you sleepy

Soul Bubbles does a magnificent job of feeding its unique approach to strategy and puzzle-solving at a constant yet measured pace, never leaving you with one bubble manipulating technique for long. So, while it might not focus on anything resembling...

Looking a little like LocoRoco, Eidos' DS effort is highly suitable and entertaining, but way, way too easy...

Unique concept ; Excellent controls/interface ; Impressive visual style

Not challenging enough ; Not enough content ; Serious lack of long-term appeal

Offering a slice of diversity to the DS' already wide and varied catalogue, Soul Bubbles is an intriguing prospect let down by the lack of any genuine challenge or long-term value. The brilliance of the level designs falls a little short of the...

Very few games get released that stand out these days. Aside from the mega titles of Metal Gear Solid IV, Grand Theft Auto IV, Call of Duty 4, Soul Calibur IV and so on (see a theme going on with all of the 4's?), there really are not many games to...

All said, Soul Bubbles is a unique, refreshing title for the Nintendo DS. It came out of left field and unfortunately few will get to enjoy it as it is limited to the shelves of Toys R Us. Whether you have a kid in mind or are looking for a summer...

There are plenty of stages in Soul Bubbles, however, the game felt pretty short. Thankfully, the stages are full of variety which changes up the formula every now and then and prevents the game from getting repetitive. At first you just have to worry...

Some very thought-out puzzle elements, which offers a high level of variety; Looks great

Might not be long or difficult enough for some

Once in a while, it feels good to play a simple game that just gets your mind off things and takes you to a new world without requiring too much from you. That's basically the case with Soul Bubbles. This game was quite entertaining (at least for a...

Feel the soul in this innovative puzzler.

Soul Bubbles is a welcome addition to the DS. It's fun, it's challenging and most of all, it's worth your time. It's simple enough for people of all ages to enjoy and challenging enough for the hardcores out there bent on saving every spirit, finding...
