Nebulous is a fun smartphone game with a very simple premise. The primary goal is to literally 'gobble up' smaller bubbles in order to create a larger bubble. The game takes place within a space-like environment and as the bubble grows, gravity will attract an increasing number of smaller particles. The final intention is to obtain the highest score.
Gameplay and Basic Functions
Nebulous can be controlled by swiping a finger to manipulate the movement of the player's bubble. It is possible to compete with other competitors in order to become the largest 'blob'. Numerous achievements are offered along the way. These include customized skins, a place on a virtual leader board and access to more advanced skins (themes) as the game progresses. Other unique functions not available in generic versions include the ability to eject a portion of the mass of the blob into a specific direction and customized control settings.
There are more than 500 skins which can be accessed, so it is easy to create personalized themes during gameplay. Nebulous also provides a grid framework for those who may be looking to improve their strategy. The presence of black holes is an additional hurdle which will need to be dealt with from time to time.
