Hello once again Newgrounders, and welcome to Bomboozle 2, where your job is to clear the island of as many of the pesky blob invaders as possible! There are now two ways of clearing blobs - the first is to simply click a group of 3 or more of the same colour, then click again. The second is to hold the left mouse button to draw a line over a chain of blobs, then let go to destroy them - both methods have their uses! Try toggling one-click mode with the space bar for rapid blob annihilation!

If you're able to clear a group of 5 or more then you'll be rewarded with a rather handy bomb which can clear a load of blobs in one go - just click a bomb twice to detonate it. If you're smart then you can chain multiple bomb explosions together to rack up stacks of points! A word of warning though - try to avoid clearing groups of 3 as a skull will be dropped in to the board which can only be removed with a bomb!

As you progress you'll come across new blobs which will make your life even more difficult than it already is. Fortunately though you have all new special abilities which are represented by the pots at the bottom of the screen. As you clear blobs these pots fill up, and once full you can use them to help you with a variety of things, such as destroying skulls and removing troublesome blobs at the bottom of the board.

There are many different ways to play Bomboozle 2, so develop your own strategy and go for the top score! There's a handy little surprise waiting for you if you an unlock all of the of luck, and happy Bomboozling!



PS. Thanks to NG users "steffen144", "noxus21" not to mention "fewmenleft" via Twitter, version 0.4.9 now has a few bug fixes and improvements. For example, collecting the treasure on your last move in 100 Moves mode will actually end the game properly now, multiple bombs can no longer be selected (massive bug I somehow missed!), but to make up for this the green potion will now kill the masked skulls outright.

PPS. Just uploaded version 0.5.0. Thanks to further input from "fewmenleft", I've now adjusted the "Destroy the bottom 3 rows" powerup so that it destroys all blobs outright - previously, megaskulls would just lose their mask and frozen blobs would only thaw out.

PPS. Thanks to Tom for the front page action! Just fixed another bug too - didn't realise that the last three pots weren't filling properly, so that's now fixed; ie. skulls should fill the white pot, wildcards should fill the rainbow pot, and bombs should fill the black pot. Don't know how we missed that, but there you go.

PPPS! Fixed an issue with the treasure not always reappearing, which is of course pretty important for getting that last medal. :)

PPPPS. ;) A few people (particularly WtfNinja and Morgomir) mentioned that they didn't think the game should end if you still had pots filled which could get you out of trouble, so I've now updated the game to allow for this. It did require a fair bit of code rewriting though, so let me know if any bugs pop up! The latest version is v0.5.6 - thanks for everyone's feedback and comments. :)

fun game

this is quite fun and addicting. Graphics are pretty good and the music is entertaining. gameplay is fun and has some interesting elements. It isn't the most original game but it isn't boring and has unique aspects.
Those later medals sure are ruthless! :P
a good game overall.

Cheers - I'm not even sure I can get all of those medals you know...:-O

Another great one!

This was a ton of fun to play because it was just so adorable! I admired how it had such a bright, uplifting spirit to it and showed off all the colors of the rainbow and everything! I never thought I would have to work that hard just to get 1,000 blobs clear for a 5 pt medal! Everything here is so great, including that big monkey thing who is drawing everything. It deserves to be added to the neverending list of games with medals here on Newgrounds! I also love the little squishy sounds you get when you get rid of a bunch of them.

Megadev responds:

Ah, well if you thought the 1,000 blobs medal was hard then you're in for a nasty surprise - some of the later ones are vicious! Not sure any of us could get them and we've been playing for a few months now. :)

Fun and Addictive

Good fun that doesn't get boring and the music doesn't get annoying like some puzzle game. Excellent job on this and nicely thought out. Thanks !! +Fave

Megadev responds:

Cheers! We tried to inject some variety in to the music this time round, so I'm glad you appreciate it. :)
