EARN MORE POINTS = More STARS (Vicki’s Tips)

 Written by Victoria Muller at Facebook.

The most commonly asked questions are:

1. How to I increase my score so that I can get through a level with at least one Star?

2. How do I get my score up so I can get 3 stars on each level? 

Here is the description and Instructions as per King.com

Description

The three witches are looking for a new addition to their circle. You have been invited to their haunted house to prove your worth. Can you create enough spiders and keep the cauldron bubbling?

Instructions

  1. Aim and shoot with the mouse. Match 3 of the same colour to remove them.
  2. Every shot that bursts bubbles will add a new spider. If you don’t burst bubbles, two spiders are removed.
  3. The score for the falling bubbles increase every time they bounce on a spider.

Sound simple enough? LOL

Ok, the more points thing…. These are the things you need to remember:

Balls bouncing on Spiders are worth MORE than straight shooting them.

– You create spiders by shooting a 3 ball combinations.

– Green spiders make your balls multiply when they bounce on them. Get Green spiders by shooting 3 ball combinations 5 times in a row.

How can I make sure I shoot 3 ball combos 5 times in a row?

ALWAYS line up your next shot. Think to yourself, if I shoot this green, will I then be able to shoot the red that is in the cauldron? You don’t want to miss a 3 bubble combo or you will lose spiders.

Always remember, falling balls are worth much more than balls that are shot. Keep as many spiders at the bottom as you can by never missing. Never miss by always lining up your next shot.

Understand?

With the Colour changes you have to think even more… Right now that cluster is Red and I have a red ball, so, I will switch it to the blue, shoot over there and then shoot those reds once they have turned gold…

Make sense?

The next thing, don’t always take the EASY hit.

If 2 balls are close to a wall you can drop a bunch if you shoot the two that are holding them up.

See Example picture

See the 2 Reds that the pointer is pointing to? If you hit those you will drop that side.

The easy shot is to the left. That is what I mean, the EASY shot is not always the BEST shot.

Now once I clear that side I then have a WALL that I can bounce balls off to clear out the middle, other side or ceiling if I want, depending on what I need. If it is one of those levels where you can’t see the ceiling, then concentrate on clearing the lower ones. This is made a LOT easier if you can side shot.

THE GAP

Don’t be so focused on shooting 2 ball clusters to make 3 that you miss a GAP oportunity.

In the example pic below, you will see I have a BLUE ball ready to shoot and instead of shooting at either side, I shoot right in the middle.

Now the Gold is taking up the ceiling and I have both Blue and Gold in my pot. Why would I shoot the Blue and not the gold?

So I can get another spider dangling before I drop the ceiling…..

Remember, 3 ball hits = spiders, Balls bouncing on spiders = more points.

NOTE: Not all GAPS are this easy to see. The gaps can also be just one ball either side, or they can be angeled, and you don’t think about it because they are not together… Just remember to keep a look out for things like this.

And remember,

Just dont rush levels. Thats the GREAT thing about this game. Its not timed. You can walk away mid game to make a coffee and come back and sit and think.

Most of the time I hit a bomb and go “Oh no I have to hurry up and clear a path!” You don’t. The bomb ONLY ticks down by the number of shots you make so go and have a coffee then look again. You’d be surprised the shots you can see with fresh eyes.

Magic Potions

There are four kind of different boosters in the game Bubble Witch Saga. All of these potions are Magic Potions. You buy them with in-game coins.

  • the 3 Golden Spider Magic potion gives you 3*3(+(3*3)) golden spiders. Unlocked at 20 Stars

  • the 7 extra bubbles Magic Potion gives you 3*7 extra bubbles. Unlocked at 50 Stars
  • the 3 Extra Ceiling holes Magic Potion puts three random holes in the ceiling from the start of the level and they stay cleared unless you put something in them. Unlocked at 70 Stars
  • the Rainbow Bubble Magic Potion activates 3*2 Rainbow Bubbles Rainbow Bubble Unlocked at 130 Stars.

Use your coins to buy Magic Potions, you purchase a Potion by clickin’ on the coin besides the price.

Level 4 and the trick to get 3 stars

Starting Bubbles: 35 bubbles

You will have to do almost only angle shots at level 4, build one green spider and let the ceiling free by bursting two different rows of bubbles. That is actually very simple! Good luck!

If you feel that you need some more training for level 4, please scroll down and watch FaceBookSpiele.de’s video. The music is techno, so turn it down, if you are at work or the kids are sleeping. ;)

level-4-3-stars

Getting 3 stars on level 4 is quite easy! :)

Rainbow Bubble

Collect 130 stars to unlock the Rainbow Bubble. The rainbow bubble is purchased by 2000 in-game coins as a Magic Potion. You can use a rainbow bubble twice per play ground.

It will match any ordinary bubble and burst every ordinary bubble it comes in contact with.

You can use it twice / game and when purchased it is active for 3 games.

If you have 10 spiders and at least one is a blue spider, you can shoot a rainbow bubble at  a virus bubble, black bubble, in the ceiling or at a Spider bubble to get a green Spider!

If you hit a single Spider Bubble with the RB Bubble, the Spider Bubble usually doesn’t spits Potion.

The Rainbow Bubble have limitations in combination with the Lock Bubbles, as they are considered obstacles and the RB Bubble do not burst other obstacles than Spider Bubbles.

Greetings from Shelea:

if you use the rainbow bubble to hit the ‘crotch’ of two different colored bubbles, you get rainbow credit for both colors

How do I earn stars in Bubble Witch Saga?

You earn stars by clearing levels. For clearing a level you earn one, two or tree stars depending of how high you score. You can see your score at the bottom right corner when you are playing the level at PC or Mac and monitor your progress. The mobile version of the game doesn’t have this feature.

If you have earned one star on a level the first time, you can come back to that level later on and try to earn more stars. Every level with a guide here at the Fan Site have noted how many Points you need to get 1, 2, 3 Stars. You can use the level tags to the left to find your desired level. Or just CLICK THIS LINK to get to the Level index for Bubble Witch Saga.

You can not get even 1 Star at a level, even if you have the score needed, unless you have cleared the ceiling, aka got at least 9 holes up there to break it.

Stars unlock Magic Potions and Magic Charms and Extra lives.

E.g. 70 stars unlock the potion that gives you extra holes in the ceiling and 90 stars gives you an extra heart!!!
