Thanks man... I did post a much improved score after that though, did you see it? Thumbs Up

Still not as high as you and Zak but a huge increase on my fist try! Grin

Kaz - you are really doing good Bob

Great score Will too and Zakatek Grin

Does anyone have any tips for me as to how to play level 8 - I die about 70% of the time on this level. Do you just have to match colours as quick as possible? lots of rapid firing? I'm not sure the best way to play level 8.

After practicing, I managed to get past round 8, that was causing me some grief. You could always check out the Puzzle Bobble FAQ on gamefaqs though as there are some tactics on there. Maybe this will help?

8: There are several strategies for beating this level. These are the
ones that have been submitted:

Pairs, pairs, pairs. I always make sure that the colors are paired
before I pop 'em. This way I rarely get stuck with a bubble that
can't go anywhere. Whenever I can, I try to make sure that I am
eliminating a triple that exposes an unpaired color. Because I form
pairs, it becomes easy to cope with the times when the same color appears
again and again because I can pop 4 or 5 of the same bubble at once. The
pairs technique also helps me to avoid having to hang unpaired bubbles
off a pair so that it would drop when I popped the pair. I hate 'hanging'
because it decreases the amount of space a fired bubble can manuever in.
(Chavez)

As mentioned above, try to keep one of every color exposed.
Attack the middle, and try to undermine rather than use a triple on the
left and right bubbles of the third row. This is especially true when all
you have on the left side is that purple hanging from a red hanging from
a purple. Slip a purple between the other two and the red falls. Attack
the purples in the corners from the outside. That first one should be up
against the wall, and the second one better hit it. If you go inside with
that purple, sometimes the computer will give you the wrong colors and
you'll end up trapping a blue or yellow in the middle. (Tiri)


I guess just making sure you keep on step ahead of things helps. When you are shooting your current bubble, always make sure you have one eye on what the next one is so you make sure you make the correct choice, and also know where you will need to aim for in the next shot, it does save time. Saying that, if you need to take a little extra time to figure out where to aim for next then take it... my last score was pretty decent even though after the first few rounds I didn't get much in the way of time bonuses, I mainly scored high by eliminating large amounts of bubbles in one go on a few of the stages.

Nice score Kaz! I'm still struggling with round 8. It really is very tough. I did pretty badly but did manage to improve on my earlier score.

This game can be so annoying. I can make 2,600,000 before 8th round but this time i can't pass the round. Angry
 
Zakatek
3,053,340 round 5 Shrug

Now 4,093,840 round 8. Why i can't pass this round when i got good points. I passed 8. round at my second try. :(

Great work all of you guysClap Youve been really busy with updating your PB scores.

Zakatek: You must be really fast to finish each round to rack up a score like that by the end of round 8Thumbs Up

Kaz: Dont be so modest your score is great tooSmile

Thanks for all the help and tips Kaz Thumbs Up

I didn't actually realise that you could take your time - I was always in a mad panic to go as fast as possible before the ceiling comes down - I see now that it seems to come down after a certain number of bubbles. I think they made it come down faster at the end as well to stop people making easy points!

I will take my time on Level 8 now - sometimes I do really well on it and I still mange to die - I think I need to be more careful at the end.

Zakatek - Yes I wish I knew your scoring tactics too! Grin

Well on some stages, you can get MASSIVE points if you take down a large number of bubbles in one go... I can't get THAT many by stage 8 though that's for sure. On stage 9 though - that's a major one especially if you are lucky enough to get an orange early on, you get massive points for it.

If you can finish the stage fast then of course you will get lots of bonus points that way too, but if you rush too much you'll only end up dying.

My tactic is trying to drop large amount of balls. You can make 1,300,000 points with one shot. Bu it can be risky and you need to be lucky. At my second try i made it to 16th round and after i figured out how to make more points i can't go that far.

1,310,720 with one shot at first round. Look at picture i attached.
But after i made this at first round game becomes harder or i suck. Thumbs Down

Thanks for the tips Kaz and Zakatek. I'm going to have another go tonight.

Priest did you notice the score I posted a little earlier? It's a bit pathetic but still an improvement for me.

So what do you do? Fill the screen up with loads of bubbles and set it up so you can take 'em all down with one shot? I might give it a try and see what happens...
