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 medals...best of luck, and happy Bomboozling!

Cheers,

Megadev.

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. :)

Very fun and addictive game.

ok so i took some time with this game, it was an interesting one, I found this to be fun and it has some good replay value besides that there is some excitement building around this one. Ok so this starts of with a "CUTE" look and sound, very fresh colors and props all about it so really nice idea there, Not alot of flash can win awards but when the effort does show off as does this one then its worth it and this one was worthit for sure so fantastic job there, and props to you on the awards. So the game was noth hard and easy, it was also "ADDICTIVE" i found muself having lots of fun and i guess thats the important part. The gameplay itself is pretty interesting. And is not overly complex more simple games that are the most enjoyable. tend to not be too detailed so thats why i was thankful to find this one, as it was prettyentertaining and interesting.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
I like what you have done here, i would like to suggest some ideas, and some positive suggestions, Flex your ideas flex everyones ideas and make it a much better game entry then you can, So here are some options Some more flashy effects when you get some great combos and such would be nice but honestly this game didnt need much to it.

Fun n cute

I like that its a solid game but its unique in game abilites keep it from being generic. The graphics are cute, I think the painter guy is a bit silly but to each his own. The sounds and colors really make this game cheerful, which gives it a sort of 'pop' that not a lot of other games have.

Pretty Boring

I find this game pretty boring and near the same as every one of these puzzle games. It is still a nice game, but I give you 6 for this game.

the is very addictive

This game is surprisingly addictive, and medals are awesome but, as other people said it could benefit from a hint button.

omg

I hold the all time highscore on the 100 moves game because of a bug wohoo :b when you reach 1 move, make sure you got a chest and with your final move make the chest hit the floor. this will let you lose 1 turn instantly and boom you are on -1 turns... since the game first stops at 0 you now have infinite turns :D author you might wanna fix this ;)
as for all you bug abusers out there, as soon as you got enough points klick on the give up botton and submit your score.. happy laming ^^

Damn, that'll teach me to change things at the last minute! Very well spotted, and that bug should now be fixed. :)
